Tsugami/Rem Sales offers the Tsugami M08J, an highly rigid two-axis turning center with a manual tailstock, programmable quill and A2-6 spindle nose. The lathe’s rigid construction uses boxed ways for the X axis and oversized linear guides for the Z axis for heavy-duty machining. Thermal displacement compensation comes standard on the M08J, which boosts machine accuracy by measuring the thermal displacement using the touch sensors installed on the X-axis slide. 

With an 8" chuck, an eight-station automatic turret and a FANUC 0i-TF control, the lathe handles applications such as turning, drilling, boring and thread cutting. Options include the addition of high pressure coolant, foot pedals and a chip conveyor.

  • Hard Turning Might Not Be As Hard As You Think

    Turning hardened materials to grinding-like accuracies takes the right combination of part, machine and process parameters.

  • 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.
