Hardinge’s T-51 MSY SP turning center provides a 2"-capacity, collet-ready main spindle to bring the cutting location closer to the spindle bearings. This design combined with the Harcrete-reinforced cast-iron base provides a rigid and stable machining process, the company says. The main spindle has through-spindle coolant and a part-present detector. The A2-6 subspindle is equipped with a Sure-Grip expanding collet with parallel gripping. A BMT 55 turret has 12 stations tooled for turning, boring, drilling, grooving and milling. The machine can be equipped with a machine-tending package for automated production.
