Tsugami/Rem Sales will feature the SS38MH-5AX, a 38-mm Swiss-type lathe that features B-axis rotation to enable it to perform full five-axis simultaneous machining. The machine is a “convertible-style” sliding headstock lathe, which means it can operate as a traditional Swiss-type with guide bushing or as a conventional chucker. It features a 40-tool magazine, 10 tools on the back tool post, and an optional two tools on the deep-hole drill holder. Linear glass scales on the X1-, Y1-, Z1- and X2-axis slides are standard features. The machine’s backworking overlap with live-tool capability is said to enable multiple tools to be in the cut, shortening cycle times.

The company will also display a variety of its other machines and products, including: the MO8SY Gantry; the LaserSwiss; the B0326-II Swiss-type CNC automatic lathe; the SS327-5AX 32-mm, chucker-convertible Swiss-type lathe; the BW129Z nine-axis Swiss-type lathe; the B038T 38-mm turning center; the B0205-III chucker-convertible, five-axis opposed gang tool Swiss-type CNC lathe; and the S206 six-axis Swiss turn. 

The new LaserSwiss is a next generation precision Tsugami B0125-III. The 12-mm, five-axis Swiss-type CNC lathe has a fully integrated SPI laser cutting system.

All laser operations are programmed and driven from the machine’s FANUC 0i-TF control and the laser’s power, pulse width, frequency, lens focus and nozzle standoff are on-the-fly adjustable. The machine is equipped with a gas box capable of switching between two assist gases, which are typically nitrogen, oxygen and argon.
