Twin Turret Automated Shaft Lathes

The ANS-300TTS and ANS-320TTS twin turret automated shaft lathes from Fuji are especially useful for high volume applications with short cycle times. Featuring four-axis simultaneous operation and the company’s own gantry robot, the lathes achieve faster cycle times and faster takt for optimal workpiece output. The rigid boxway construction of these lathes ensures superior spindle output, the company says.

The ANS-300TTS and ANS-320TTS twin turret automated shaft lathes from Fuji are especially useful for high volume applications with short cycle times. Featuring four-axis simultaneous operation and the company’s own gantry robot, the lathes achieve faster cycle times and faster takt for optimal workpiece output.

The rigid boxway construction of these lathes ensures superior spindle output, the company says. Approximately 50 percent of the process cycle time is reduced by high spindle and cutting thrust. A honeycomb-constructed column enhances rigidity and reduces machine weight. Featuring a compact design, floor space requirements are at a minimum.

The included Fuji-designed and built high-speed two-axis gantry robot enables the ANS-300TTS to carry up to 11 lbs plus 11 lbs, while the ANS-320TTS can carry up to 22 lbs + 22 lbs. For faster and smoother simultaneous multi-axis movement to access the front, back, left and right of the traverse axis, the ANS-300TTS and the ANS-320TTS are equipped with FUJI’s SP1 Max robot controller. A Fanuc 320i-A CNC control with five-place decimal positioning control (English); four-place metric is also included.

Both the lathes operate at a maximum spindle speed of 3,500 rpm and hard turn with a 20-hp spindle motor. Featuring a curvic coupling, the turret heads on each slide are capable of heavy radial force developed during cuts. The programmable traveling tailstock features a long stroke of 13.78”.

Suitable for machining pinion shafts, turbo charger shafts, input shafts, output shafts, axle shafts, electric motor shafts and more, the ANS-300TTS and the ANS-320TTS machines turn diameters as large as 7.1” and shaft work as large as 11.81” long (with the option to upgrade to the ANS-320TTS to machine shaft work as large as 23.62” long).
