There are various B-axis turn-mill machines that have automatic toolchangers (ATCs) to tend their milling heads. Hwacheon now offers its C1 series CNC lathes with Y-axis motion and an ATC that tends its “three-stack” turret. In addition to tool stations that can be used to perform operations on either the main or subspindle, the turret has six stations with Capto toolholder interfaces to accommodate automatic tool change-out, like on a B-axis turn-mill, VMC or HMC (see video above). This offers increased flexibility to job shops that encounter a diverse array of workpieces and small batch sizes.
