Twin-Spindle Lathe Shortens Cycle Times

The Ganesh Cyclone-32 GTS has dual gang slides to allow the main spindle and the subspindles to work independently, shortening cycle times because both spindles are working simultaneously. The spindles provide fast acceleration and deceleration, the company says. These machines come standard with 1,181-ipm rapids a
