Tsugami/Rem Sales’ M08J CNC lathe is a rigid two-axis turning center with a manual tailstock, programmable quill and A2-6 spindle nose. The lathe features a rigid construction using boxed ways for the X axis with oversized linear guides for the Z axis for heavy-duty machining. 

Thermal displacement compensation comes standard on the M08J, which allows for machine accuracy by measuring the thermal displacement using the touch sensors installed on the X-axis slide. All of this is packed into a small footprint of 67” × 66” × 63”.

The lathe can be used for a number of applications such as turning, drilling boring and thread cutting. Options include the addition of high pressure coolant, foot pedals and a chip conveyor.

  • Rolling Threads Has Advantages

    With macros and canned cycles resident in the CNC on most contemporary turning centers, single point turning of OD threads can seem like almost a default process decision. However, for numerous applications, OD thread rolling has inherent advantages as an alternative to cutting threads.

  • 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.

  • 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.
