Star CNC Machine Tool Corp.’s SW-20, a Swiss-type automatic lathe equipped with cutting-edge software, enables complex components to be manufactured quickly. This model was built to transform the productivity in complex machining, with mechanical and control systems designed to minimize non-cutting time to the utmost level. The end result is improved production output, as well as improved profitability.

The SW-20 also offers a multitude of new functions such as manual handle retracing, program check, code and alarm help, among others, to assist the system operator. By giving the motor on the subspindle power equal to the main spindle, the SW-20 also enhances the freedom to program efficiently.

Features include an eight-spindle tool post (with Y-axis control function), designed exclusively for back-end working; simultaneous machining by opposing gang slides (two-tool turning, two-tool milling/drilling); the Star Motion Control System to ensure an uninterrupted tool path; an electric drive to eliminate hydraulic pressure, reducing idle time; and collets that can be opened/closed even during high-speed operation.
