The A32 Type VII Swiss-type CNC automatic lathe from Marubeni Citizen-Cincom Inc. offers 32-mm diameter machining and features a rapid feed rate of 45 m/min, high-speed processing with the latest NC unit and Citizen's streamline control. Special consideration for thermal displacement makes high accuracy machining possible, according to the company, and an ingenious design has been applied to the shape of the bed and placement of the electric cabinet.
The A20 type VII is also available with an additional axis (X2) on the back spindle making front/back simultaneous machining possible. This, in combination with the 32-m/min rapid feed rate, has cut cycle times, the company says.
