Fuji CSD-300II

Fuji Machine’s CSD-300II front-facing twin-spindle lathe offers faster robot traverse and turret indexing speeds than its predecessor, the CSD-300. Turret index times are as low as 0.19 sec., with loading times of 4.8 sec.

The CSD-300II also features an improved custom human-machine interface and a single integrated FANUC control panel to ease operation and setup of the machine and robot. A clamp/unclamp switch are included for the robot chuck and the robot’s centralized lubrication system.

The CSD-300II accurately manages heavy parts (5+5 kg) up to 200 mm in diameter and 100 mm in length. The lathe also features a hydraulic clamping loader and 8"- to 10"-capacity chucks. An optimized bed design with a grooving width of 14 mm provides rigidity.

Available as an option, Fuji’s Lapsys desktop software reads scanned laser etchings to trace the origin of a part, including machine and spindle, and to facilitate predictive maintenance and remote operation.
