Three-Turret Turning Center--Methods Machine Tools

The Super NTY(3) multitasking turning center from Nakamura-Tome offers 100-percent stock-on turning and machining that virtually eliminates lost productivity because of tool changes. With three turrets, each with a Y axis, it outperforms single-tool multitasking machines, allowing one-pass complete turning/machining/finishing to reduce part cycle times.

The Super NTY(3) multitasking turning center from Nakamura-Tome offers 100-percent stock-on turning and machining that virtually eliminates lost productivity because of tool changes. With three turrets, each with a Y axis, it outperforms single-tool multitasking machines, allowing one-pass complete turning/machining/finishing to reduce part cycle times. Its three 6,000-rpm milling motors can simultaneously machine two flat surfaces (top and bottom) on one spindle and one surface on the other. Each turret holds 12 driven or 24 stationary tools, for a maximum of 72 tool stations. Accelerating Y axes have travels of 2.44" (62 mm).

The turning center features the Fanuc 31iA CNC control with nanometer resolution for smooth movement and improved accuracy. Overload detection, NT Nurse programming/monitoring software and NT Work Navigator (torque-type) software are also standard, reducing costs by eliminating the need for positioning jigs and fixtures.
