The Goodway GS-6000 series turning center, available from Yama Seiki, combines a high-rigidity boxway bed with large-diameter servo indexing turret and a two-step gear-spindle structure. Three models are available, with maximum turning lengths of 950, 1,980 and 3,300 mm (37.40", 77.95" and 129.92"). Multiple operations, including turning, milling, drilling and tapping, can be performed on a workpiece with available live tooling and C-axis capabilities.

 

The machine features a turret disk measuring more than 750 mm in diameter and a 45-degree slant bed with wide boxways. X- and Z-axis rapids are 787 and 944 ipm, respectively. According to Yama Seiki, the turning center provides 0.5-sec. indexing times from station to station and 1.5-sec. times for stations at 180 degrees. The two-speed headstock is driven by a 50-hp FANUC motor. Fully enclosed protection covers isolate chips and coolant inside the machine.

  • B-Axis Turn/Mills Have Their Place

    The additional rotary milling axis on these machines allows them to complete many types of complex parts in a single setup, but these machines have gained a reputation for being difficult to program. Today’s CAM software, however, eases the programming challenge significantly.

  • Why Y-Axis For Turn/Mill Machines?

    Live tooling on turning centers greatly expands multiple processing capability. With the addition of Y-axis, turning and machining process integration takes a significant step further. Here's how the technology works.

  • More Effective Camshaft Machining

    A leading manufacturer of high-performance valve train components installed a twin spindle/twin-turret lathe to bring camshaft machining work in-house. Here, the company explains how it has become more effective using its multifunction lathe to produce small batches of custom racing camshafts.
