Based on the Tornos Deco a-line, the new EvoDECO includes fully synchronous drives to significantly reduce cycle times for parts that require a lot of stopping. It also works with or without a guide bush.

The single-spindle turning center accepts barstock from 2- to 16-mm diameter. Ten axes plus two C axes on the EvoDECO 16a (or 8 + 2 on the EvoDECO 16e) are managed simultaneously with perfect interpolarity between axes. Four independent tool systems on the EvoDECO 16a (three on the EvoDECO 16e) allow simultaneous bar and secondary operation work. 
 
The machine’s new powered spindle technology provides identical front and counter spindles with an increase in power and torque on both – plus a significant reduction in downtime because of stoppage, indexing, acceleration, deceleration, which allows the machines to go from 0 - 8,000 rpm in milliseconds. The new spindle technology, with rotational speeds of 12,000 rpm on the main and counter spindles also eliminates noise and reduces maintenance. 
 
Standard equipment includes an integrated chiller unit, rotating guide bush and tool motors, C1 + C4 axes, interpolation in polar coordinates, clamping force fine adjustment, pneumatic workpiece ejector, collet cleaning with oil, automatic centralized lubrication cycle, cooling pump with self-cleaning filter, timer for preheating cutting oil, feeder and connecting tube interface, and TB-DECO + ADV programming software on a Fanuc 16i TB control.
