The Fuji ANS-3100P is a modular machine with one spindle, one turret and one robot. This hard turning lathe offers built-in automation with the Fuji four-axis rack and pinion swing arm robot. This SP1 Max Controller features faster and smoother simultaneous multi-axis movement to access the front, back, left and right of the traverse axis. The machine is equipped with a Fanuc Control with five-place decimal control (four-place metric). Higher spindle accuracy and higher precision ballscrews are some of the latest features on the lathe. The vertical bed provides excellent evacuation of chips. The machine is available with a 12-pallet work stocker and other auxiliary loading options. It operates at a maximum of 3,500 rpm, has an eight-position turret and hard turns with a 20-hp spindle motor.
