Traub’s TNL20 sliding/fixed headstock automatic lathe can be equipped to use up to four tools simultaneously. An optional robot cell integrated in the machine is available for automated loading of blank shafts or preformed workpieces, the company says.

The TNL20 is launched in two versions. One equipment level is the TNL20-9, which has nine linear axes, two turrets, a backworking attachment, and an autonomous counter spindle. According to the company, the TNL20-9 can deploy three tools simultaneously.

A second version, the TNL20-11, is equipped with an additional front working attachment on an autonomous X/Z slide. By the interpolation of the H indexing axis of the front working attachment with the X-axis of the autonomous compound slide, Y machining operations or tool offsets can also be performed with the front working attachment on the main spindle, the company says. At this equipment level, it is also possible to produce with up to four tools simultaneously to reduce machining times.
