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.

  • Aluminum Molds In Three Weeks Or Less

    While aluminum molds are commonly used to create prototypes or to serve as stopgap bridge tooling, they are starting to receive greater attention for production work. This shop’s approach to creating aluminum molds in one day to three weeks is the same for each of these situations.

  • Why Y-Axis For Turn/Mill Machines?

    Live tooling on turning centers greatly expands multiple processing capability. With the addition of Y-axis, turning and machining process integration takes a significant step further. Here's how the technology works.

  • 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.
