No, I’m not talking about the Hadrian Collider. It’s the new Tsugami S206-II, which debuted to enthusiastic crowds at IMTS earlier this month.

Using the in-house development resources at Rem Sales, which is the exclusive N.A. importer of Tsugami Swiss-type lathes, its sister company, Innovative Machinery Group, designed, built and integrated a laser to augment the new Tsugami Swiss.

This is not an accessory or add-on, says Product Manager Dale White. It adds fully programmable cutting capability to the six-axis capability of the S206-II: Chalk it up to another step in multitasking machine tool technology.

By adding a laser to a Swiss machine, the company is targeting the medical device market, but it’s fully able cut intricate and precise small parts for other industries.
