Dual-Spindle Gang Tool Lathe

New from Miyano, the BX-26S gang tool lathe with two spindles offers complete part machining of complex bar work (1" diameter and under) in one setup. Two gang slides and a 3D linear turret further contributes to the lathe’s precision and quick cycle times, according to the company. The linear turret and traverse-type identical left and right spindles, both with 5 hp, promote stable cutting from end-to-end, making the machine appropriate for long shaft work, the company says.

The linear turret and traverse-type identical left and right spindles, both with 5 hp, promote stable cutting from end-to-end, making the machine appropriate for long shaft work, the company says. High speed turning at 8,000 rpm is possible via built-in spindle motors and rigid linear guides. The built-in motors with the same collet capacity are also said to improve cycle times because of overlapping operations.
