ZPS America’s eight-spindle ZPS 867 CNC multi-spindle production center can accommodate stock to 72-mm diameter. Provided with a double Siemens 840 D CNC control, the European-built machine offers as much as 72 CNC axes and can perform virtually any metalcutting operation on precision parts from drilling and tapping to milling, spline gears, broaching and hobbing.

The CNC multi line offers high processing flexibility and fast change-over with the ability to drop a variety of complex precision parts complete as either a bar-fed or chucker operation.

The machine’s versatility is provided through its standard features: eight independent AC-driven CNC horizontal spindles, eight-independent compound slides (X and Z), eight independent tool carriers with eight 1,2000-rpm driven tools, five backworking tools (three driven tools), and a range of standard presettable VDI tooling for quick change-over.

Each of the machine’s eight spindles is linked by a composite shaft to its own motor into the spindle drum, which employs a precise Hirth coupling. This makes it unnecessary to reverse-index the drum at the end of each 360-degree cycle, connect and disconnect the motors to the spindles with each indexing and cool the drum to dissipate the heat generated by the spindle motors.
