Every month, we’re putting together a Technology Showcase, highlighting some of the print and digital-only product information that Production Machining received from supplier companies. For March, we’re focusing on turning machines, including a chucker-convertible Swiss-type lathe, an 8-axis Swiss-type turning center that features a subspindle, a 20-mm machine with a rotary synchronous guide bushing and more.

Introduced to the turn-mill machine tool design in about 1996, the Y axis was first used on a single-spindle, mill-turn lathe with a subspindle. The idea of a Y axis on a CNC originated from the quality limitation of polar interpolation and the difficulty in programming, not from electronic advances in controls or servomotor technology as one might commonly think.
Working closely with its machine tool supplier, this firearms manufacturer has quickly expanded its lineup of turning machines to deliver quality products and faster delivery.
From watch parts to exotic medical applications, this shop takes on the world of micromachining.
