Compact CNC Turning Centers Increase Productivity

The BNJ Series of compact turning centers from Miyano are configured to perform simultaneous overlap machining. The series features a stationary main spindle with a turret on X, Y and Z axes and an R spindle on X and Z axes. While the main turret is working o the main spindle, the R spindle can simultaneously perform secondary functions on either the main turret (through an overlapping control) or on the backworking turret.

The BNJ Series of compact turning centers from Miyano are configured to perform simultaneous overlap machining. The series features a stationary main spindle with a turret on X, Y and Z axes and an R spindle on X and Z axes. While the main turret is working o the main spindle, the R spindle can simultaneously perform secondary functions on either the main turret (through an overlapping control) or on the backworking turret. Overlapping machining is especially effective for long cutting cycles. The backworking turret operation works by allowing the R spindle to move forward to perform overlap machining and cutoff operations.

The 12-station main turret, equipped with a Y axis, provides high-quality, highly efficient combined machining and reduces cycle times by permitting simultaneous front and back operations. This consolidates work, simplifies workflow, reduces dead stock and reduces overall costs, according to the company.

While the main spindle of the BNJ Series can accommodate up to 12 tools, the R spindle can be worked up to 18; 12 on the main turret and six on the secondary turret. Revolving tools on the main turret can be shared by both spindles so tool shortages are virtually eliminated.
