Tornos Swiss ST26 Offers Turnkey Equipment Packs
The Swiss ST 26 high performance Swiss-type turning center from Tornos features seven linear axes.
CNC Horizontal Bar Milling Machine with Turn-Mill Capability
Tornos’ Almac FB 1005 CNC horizontal bar milling machine is capable of machining on as many as six axes with 19 live spindles.
New and Different—Really
“New” and “different” are often overused terms, but a new multi-spindle machine introduced by Tornos at this year’s IMTS (Booth S-8666) does fit the description. The Multi-Swiss is a six-spindle multi machine with the additional wrinkle of providing sliding headstock capability on all six spindles.
Turning Center with Six Sliding Headstocks
Tornos' MultiSwiss features the production capability of a six-spindle CNC and the sliding headstock feed of a Swiss-type, single-spindle turning center.
Advancing Manufacturing, Tomorrow and Today
A drilling solution improves the production of a component that is critical for correcting spinal disorders. Meanwhile, an apprenticeship program ensures that improvements like this one can continue into the future.
Tornos President Steps Down
Machine tool supplier Tornos US (Lombard, Illinois) has accepted the resignation of company president Scott Kowalski.
Single-Spindle Turning Machine and More
The EvoDeco single-spindle turning machine offers fully synchronous drives with acceleration/deceleration to reduce cycle times for parts that require a lot of stopping.
Rigid, Single-Spindle Turning Center
Based on the company’s DECO a-line machines, the new EvoDECO line offers high rigidity and powerful spindles.
Turn 1" Barstock
The Sigma 20, a high-speed sliding headstock turning center, is designed with the flexibility required in a job shop environment. This machine can turn simple to moderately complex parts. The counterspindle is as powerful as the main spindle, allowing operators to perform simultaneous machining to minimize cycle times, the company says.
Turn Parts With Simple Geometries
The Delta Swiss-type lathe product line is dedicated to machining parts with simple geometries. These machines feature a cast iron base, a large-capacity chip pan and a wide working area. The machines can be customized to work with or without a guide bushing, and they can use rotating tools.
Consider Swiss-Types For Medical Opportunities
Adopting the latest machining technologies is key for shops to accurately and repeatably create medical components. Swiss-style lathes offer a good combination of precision and repeatability for these applications thanks in part to their guide-bushing design, which provides support for the workpieces very close to the cut.
A Lathe That Doesn't Turn The Workpiece
Rather than rotating the workpiece, an Escomatic lathe rotates a toolhead around material that is held stationary in a guide bushing. This configuration allows workpiece stock to be fed as bars or coils for long periods of uninterrupted operation.
The Prescription For Making Orthopedic Parts
This shop entered the medical machining field and succeeded there.
Better Parts, Better Process
For most of us, a hobby is what we do outside work. Not so for this New York shop. With the application of multi-process machine tools, a successful metalworking business has grown from a love of radio-controlled race cars.
CNC Multispindles: Are They For You
Multispindle machines are highly complex and highly productive machine tools. Justification for their use in shops is well known. Lately, however, successful integration of multispindle CNC is changing the justification equation for shops currently using CNC single spindles.
Know Where You're Going
Building a successful and competitive job shop business takes appropriate technology, applied well. This Swiss-type screw machine shop uses a solid strategic plan like a map to keep focused and make sound business and technology decisions.
Swiss Precision With CNC Flexibility
Swiss-type automatics have been a production mainstay in screw machine shops better than a hundred years. Originally designed for production of parts for the Swiss watch industry, they are differentiated from other single-spindle machines by a sliding headstock. The cutting tools are fixed and the workpiece is moved
