The Traub TNL18 P production turning machine is capable of five-axis machining in a single setup. Able to accommodate barstock ranging to 20 mm in diameter, the TNL18 can produce long or short precision parts with or without a guide bush. As many as three tools can be used on the part at once.
 
For increased productivity, the tool capacity can be increased to 54 tools through dual- and multi-holders. The high-precision, fast turret indexing enables chip-to-chip time of 0.3 sec.
 
Suited for medical component machining as well as for aerospace parts, the machine delivers precision and qualified surface finish in a single operation, the company says.

Robotic Cell Cuts Cycle Time, Improves Part Quality

Sew-Eurodrive Inc. worked with Okuma America’s authorized systems dealer, Gosiger Automation, to design an automated cell that includes an automatic, magazine bar feeder that loads 6-ft. lengths of barstock into the machine. The shop also switched to an Okuma twin spindle, twin turret turning center so all of the machining operations are completed in one setup, thus eliminating additional fixtures and operator intervention. The resultant system reduces cycle times and requires much less operator involvement. As a result, production time per part was more than cut in half – from about 5 minutes to 2 minutes, 20 seconds.
