Tornos' Sigma 20 Pursuit, a sliding headstock turning center is capable of turning parts ranging from simple to moderately complex. The machine comes pre-loaded with attachments and accessories needed to turn a variety of parts for the electrical, consumer goods, automotive, aerospace and defense industries. The machine has three double live spindles for a total of six axes for cross milling front or back. As a manufacturer's needs evolve, tools such as angle drills, polygon milling tools and saw mills can be added to the machine.

The design is based on the done-in-one concept. Parts can be machined to completion in one setup, without requiring deburring or secondary finishing operations. Additionally, a versatile arrangement of tools can be loaded in a single setup. The machine accommodates eight to 16 front tools and eight backworking tools, all of which can be used in any combination.

The machine offers Swiss stability through its substantial one-piece core motor direct drive spindles, 5/8" tool shanks, 7-hp drive fully synchronous rotary guide bushing for rigidity and rigid one-piece cast iron base with built-in pre-cast cooling channels. Simultaneous machining on front and back spindles, high cutting speeds and 1" stock capability can greatly enhance productivity, the company says.
