Tsugami/Rem Sales’ BW129Z is a 12-mm nine-axis split-slide lathe with a simultaneous three-path control system and dual independent gang slides. This machine can house 28 tools and is equipped with a FANUC 31i-B CNC.

The nine-axis machine has three cutting tools, all cutting the part simultaneously, the company says. All three tools have independent feed rates, meaning shorter cycle times, allowing operators to produce more parts faster. This allows the BW129Z to do pinch turning and pinch milling jobs.
