Tsugami/Rem Sales offers its S206 LaserSwiss machine, which combines six-axis Swiss-type turning with laser cutting on a single machine and in one setup. The company says that this machine is ideal for medical manufacturing, particularly for very small, tubular parts. Maximum machining diameter is 0.787" (20 mm) and maximum part length is 8.26" (210 mm) per chucking.

The machine uses the IMG 400LS laser cutting system. The nozzle standoff adjustment is NC-controlled, and the laser’s frequency, pulse width, focus and power all adjustable. In addition to the laser, the turning center provides as many as 36 tools, with maximum diameters of 22 mm for the main spindle collet holders and 20 mm for the subspindle collet holders. The main spindle speed ranges from 200 to 10,000 rpm. Maximum cutting speed is 20"/sec. (500 mm/sec.).

Additional features include through-part coolant and automatic part-handling options. All operations are programmed and driven from the machine’s FANUC 32i-B control.
