Methods Machine Tools Inc. has introduced the Nakamura-Tome AS-200LMY-S subspindle machine, a multitasking turning center. The machine offers an upgraded long bed with subspindle. The machine is equipped with a milling drive, together with a high-speed, high accuracy C axis and 82-mm stroke Y axis that ensures accurate, finished parts and eliminates deburring, milling, drilling and re-positioning of fixtures, the company says.

Subspindle speed is approximately 6,000 rpm and distance between spindle noses is 31.50” (800 mm). The machine offers a 7.5-hp milling motor on a 6,000 rpm, 12-station turret with ½ indexing, providing 24-tool capacity. Maximum turning diameter is 13.39” (340 mm) and maximum turning length is 22.44” (570 mm). The turning tool is 1.0” (25 mm) and the inside boring shank is 1.25” (32 mm). The Y axis enables turning, drilling and milling off center with full power on both the Nakamura AS-200 and the AS-200LMY-S multitasking center.                                          

Providing high rigidity, the AS-200LMY-S weighs in at a heavy 11,023 lbs (5,000 kg) and takes up approximately 59.4 square feet (5.5 sq. meters) of floor space.

The AS-200 and the AS-200LMY-S come equipped with the NT Work Navigator that can recognize the coordinates of machine parts with non-round shapes such as those in forgings and castings, without any additional costs involved. This feature eliminates the need for costly positioning fixtures and clamping devices.
