Tsugami Enhances B-Axis Swiss-Type Lathe with Larger Linear Guides
IMTS Spark: Tsugami/Rem Sales announces enhancements to the Tsugami SS327-III-5AX, a 32-mm, B-Axis, chucker-convertible Swiss-type CNC lathe.
Tsugami/Rem Sales announces enhancements to the Tsugami SS327-III-5AX, a 32-mm, B-Axis, chucker-convertible Swiss-type CNC lathe. The machine now comes standard with larger linear guides, more ribs in the base casting, a 4-GB data server, thermal displacement compensation sensors, and a three-toggle clamping system.
This Swiss-types servo-driven, modular B-axis enables milling, drilling and tapping at virtually angle for single-setup, complex-part machining. Other features and capabilities include through-hole thread-whirling; high-speed spindles for small surfacing end mills; four front and two rear B-axis tools that coordinate with the C axis for angles and contours.
The modular tool zone is designed for easy changing of cartridge-type live cross and face tools on the B-axis and the sub side. Using the same tool for multiple angle cuts l also decreases the required number of tools.
Lean practices are not just for predictable production. Here are the common-sense ways this low-volume job shop has implemented a leaner process.
A drilling solution improves the production of a component that is critical for correcting spinal disorders. Meanwhile, an apprenticeship program ensures that improvements like this one can continue into the future.
This complex milling operation is performed effectively on a machine that does turning.
