The C100 series of production turn-mill centers features the Fanuc 31i CNC option.
With three 14-position tool turrets and identical main and counterspindles, the centers are designed for fast, cost-competitive production of medium-complexity turned parts from barstock ranging from 30 to 42 mm diameter, the company says. Said to be ideal for small- to medium-lot sizes, the three-turret machines deliver high performance within a small footprint, and are targeted to handle fixed-headstock work often run on Swiss-type machines.
The center includes 42 fixed and driven quick-change tools, higher horsepower, and greater torque but with the rpm typical of Swiss-style machines.
The C100 with 30-mm bar capacity comes with 9,000-rpm spindles and the model with 42-mm bar capacity is available with 7,000-rpm spindles. Both versions can run parts as long as 200 mm. Motorized main and counter spindles are identical and liquid-cooled.
