The cam-driven six-spindle automatic lathe with 20 mm bar capacity from ZPS is a  European-built machine designed for continuous or series production of precision turned parts. The machine includes six frontal slides with as many as 110 working strokes and six cross slides plus four compound slides with clamping, and bar stop in the 6th station. An independent cam controls each slide. Stroke is adjustable on the rocker arm of the corresponding drive. Machines in the range are provided with different spindle speed ranges, depending on material type and size.
 
The machines are designed for precision, safety, and long, reliable operation. Four safety clutches prevent the slides from overloading. Spindle drum locking is accomplished by a Hirth coupling. A barstock guide is standard, and the machine can also include automatic bar loaders and bar magazines for long, unattended operation.
 
To accomplish almost any operation, the machines can be provided with a range of optional equipment, including NC drive of the pick-up spindle, barstock feeding and clamping in the fourth station, attachments for high-speed drilling, reaming, tapping and broaching, and multi-spindle drilling heads on the frontal slides.
