The Ganesh Cyclone 78-MSY is a subspindle CNC lathe designed to enable efficient completion of a job in only one operation. The full-sized subspindle features coolant flush, air blast and a finished parts ejector for removal of the finished part.  Cut-off confirmation ensures that the part was properly separated before the subspindle moves back. The coolant system features a flow confirmation pressure switch to ensure coolant is getting to the cutting tools.

The turning machine features a 3" bar capacity and a 16-station BMT-65 servo turret that can accommodate more than 30 tools. Radial and axial driven tools have equal access to the fully synchronized main and subspindle. The 30-hp, 4,000-rpm main spindle and 7.5-hp milling spindles feature rigid tapping and are optimized for efficient metal removal, the company says.

The heavy-duty machine is equipped with roller-bearing linear ways for greater rigidity, enabling more aggressive cutting with improved surface finish and tool life. The linear Y-axis features 3.93" of cross travel. The lathe accommodates S-30 and Quick-Grip collet chucks as well as 10" three-jaw chucks, and is equipped with a parts gripper and parts conveyor. A Mitsubishi M720 control offer 680 block look-ahead to ensure accurate feature definition on parts at accelerated feed rates.

Methods Seeks the Perfect Machining Environment

With its new Precision Center, Methods Machine Tools is locking down environmental variables that could impact machining processes. Why? So North American manufacturers will no longer need to send parts, tooling and material to Japan or somewhere else to have intricate, sensitive or challenging test cuts performed.
