The Ganesh Cyclone 78-MSY is a six-axis twin-spindle single-turret multitasking lathe designed to get complex work done efficiently in one seamless operation. The machine features a full 3” bar capacity beltless 30-hp 4,000-rpm Mitsubishi main spindle, and an integral Mitsubishi 20-hp 4,000 rpm subspindle. The machine features a 30” turning length for ample tool clearance. Chucks up to 10” diameter can be mounted on the A2-6 spindles.

The 16-station radial mount BMT-65 high-speed servo turret indexes in 0.2-second and features 7.5-hp milling on all 16 tool stations. Since both axial and radial tools can be mounted to machine on the main and subspindle from each tool station, the tool count can be well over 30 tools. The linear Y axis features 4” of travel and adds to the machining capability as well as to the available tools count by using dual toolholders. The turret is rated for high-pressure coolant, up to 1,000 psi.

There is a high-performance fully synchronized C axis on both spindles with 360,000 radial positions for accurate contouring capability with a resolution of 0.001 degree.

The oversized 70-gallon coolant tank provides additional thermal stability for accurate work repeatability. A coolant pump is provided for the tool turret and another coolant pump is provided for chip flushing. The machine features cross-roller ways that provide twice the rigidity that ball ways provide.

The high performance Mitsubishi M720 full featured CNC control has been optimized to take advantage of the rigid machine structure, which results in efficient machining of complex parts made of exotic aerospace alloys. The 64-bit RISC-CPU runs at 135,000 blocks per minute with a 680-block look-ahead to provide superior shape definition and superior surface finishes. Ethernet RJ-45, USB, and RS-232 communications interfaces are proved for easy program transfer.
