Available from Yama Seiki, the Goodway GA-2000C compact turning center is equipped with built-in robot arm, and the parts pallet system is engineered to handle complex turning applications with superb accuracy, the company says.

The compact design of the GA-turning center, available with 12-station standard or live tooling (with c axis) combined the EWR03 built-in robot arm system increases production and efficiency. The servo indexing turret achieves 0.2 second indexing times for adjacent stations and 0.5 second for stations at the opposite end of the disk. Index movements are single step, without pauses, no matter how many stations are skipped.

The 210 mm (8.26") diameter super high precision curvic couplings accurately position the turret disk and 4,000 Kg (8,800 Ibs.) of clamping force ensures abundant turret rigidity for all cutting conditions. With 2” bar capacity and 20-hp (30-min.) spindle motor, the GA-2000C is equipped with an 8” three-jaw hydraulic chuck. The high-torque spindles deliver 2.5 ~ 4 times the torque output of standard spindles.

The EWR03 robot arm is built into the GA-2000C, which allows for a safer environment, cleaner facilities, and easy maintenance. It is a three-axes robot system using the pendulum swing-type design. With the ability to handle round disk type part with maximum part diameter of 4.72” and maximum part weight of 11 lbs, the quickest parts change time is 7 seconds. With the flipping device feature, the robot arm is able to handle AB side operation. With the use of AC servomotor, repeated accuracy is ±0.05 mm. Equipped with a 5.7” hand-held control, the easy to operate system includes teaching mode, coordinate input, operation and edit, and memory capacity of ten running programs (each of 500 single), 300 teaching points.

The GA-2000C and robot arm is also paired with a ten-pallet incline type pallet system. This type of pallet system allows the machining of varying sizes of parts within a range without the need to change pallets. A double layer option is also available for longer parts.

The use of this system reduces accidents and enables quicker change-over time to be achieved, thus decreasing overall costs and allowing manufacturers to be more competitive in their industry.
