Gosiger High Volume, in collaboration with Shimada, offers the ISM B6-27 hybrid multi-spindle bar machine, incorporating integrated spindle motors into Shimada’s No-Cam technology, and combining hydraulic slides for roughing and CNC slides for finishing. Manufacturers usually have had to choose between CAM-actuated automatics and full CNC multi-spindle machines, but the ISM B6-27 is designed to provide many of the advantages of the full CNC machines but at the price that can be justified for the kind of work it will run.

The machine has six integrated spindle motors that enable independent control of rpm by program. Other programming capabilities include spindle stopping, C-axis positioning and constant surface footage. The initial hydraulic slides allow for simple roughing operations while the CNC slides provide smooth and accurate single point finishing. The machine is equipped with the FANUC 30i control and servo motor package for good reliability and performance. A variety of attachments and extensions are also available.
