Featuring four-axis simultaneous operation, and the compnay’s gantry robot, the ANS-300TTS twin turret automated shaft lathe achieves faster cycle times and faster takt for optimal workpiece output.
The boxway construction of this lathe ensures superior spindle output, according to the company. Approximately 50 percent of the process cycle time is reduced by high horsepower spindle and cutting thrust. A honeycomb-constructed column enhances rigidity.
Designed and built by Fuji, a high-speed, two-axis gantry robot enables the standard ANS-300TTS to carry as much as two parts of 11 lbs. each. This robot allows for faster and smoother simultaneous multi-axis movement. To access the front, back, left and right of the traverse axis, the ANS-300TTS is equipped with the Robot Controller Max SP1. A Fanuc 320i-A CNC control is also included.
The shaft lathe operates at a maximum spindle speed of 3,500 rpm with a 25-hp spindle motor. Featuring a curvic coupling, the turret heads on each slide are capable of heavy radial force developed during cutting. The programmable traveling tailstock features a long stroke of 13.78”.
Suitable for machining pinion shafts, turbo charger shafts, input shafts, output shafts, axle shafts, electric motor shafts and more, these machines turn diameters as much as 7.1” and shaft work as much as 11.81” long.
FUJI turns the machining of a part into “Automated Process Perfection.” When a user contacts FUJI, the part that will be machined is analyzed by engineers with experience in process and manufacturing engineering. With the largest install base at the major automotive manufacturers, FUJI engineers apply their experience with the FUJI machines that are built for automation from the ground up.
