Bush-type lathes produced by Gildemeister Italiana claim to meet all requirements made on them by efficient factory automation and by simplified production planning. The bush-type lathe GD 26/32 has up to six controlled axes, each with two opposed spindles and tools on the linear carriage and in the turret. Having maximum turning diameters of 1" or 1.3" and using a 10.2 hp electric spindle, this lathe achieves rotational speeds of up to 10,000 rpm. Another feature is the dynamic force of the two Z axes. With a longitudinal path of 12.6" and path feed rates of up to 1,181 ipm, the new bush-type lathes achieve accelerations of up to 10 m/s2 (which correspond to the acceleration of gravity). The drive performance of the counter-spindle is 5 hp, with maximum rotational speeds of 8,000 rpm as well. With the six-axis design of GD 26/32 bush-type lathes, GILDEMEISTER Italiana has made it possible for highly complex workpieces to be processed even in the segment of large diameters. The machines have 11 driven tool stations for up to 3 hp (with a total of 28 tools maximum). Other features typical of the GD 26/32 bush-type lathe are its simple programming and the ease of access to the workspace. This reduces resetting times; even with complicated workpieces and low quantities, efficient production is said to be possible.
