Tornos is displaying its SwissDeco multitasking single-spindle lathe that is said to be well-suited for the automotive, medical, dental, electronics and aerospace industries. The machine is equipped with optimized programming tools and ergonomics for quicker parts programming and fewer setups, the company says. 

The machine offers a choice of four versions: the SwissDeco G (gang version), SwissDeco GA (gang version with A axis), SwissDeco T (turret version) and SwissDeco TB (turret version with B axis). All of the models are built on a common 36-mm base and have been designed and optimized using finite element method (FEM) analysis.

The G model has nine linear axes and a Z axis for roughing and finishing operations, frontal operations and deep drilling. It features three independent tool systems and can also be fitted with modular, pre-adjustable tool systems and devices. Available in 25.4 mm or 36 mm, the G model has up to 38 tool positions, 27 of which can be live tools.

The range is designed for compatibility with automation solutions, including the company’s Robot Cell i4.0. Integration of peripherals, such as a chip management system, minimize tasks such as cleaning. With the machine’s Industry-4.0-ready human-machine interface (HMI), programming is a simple, intuitive process guided by icons on a touchscreen, the company says.
