Tsugami/Rem Sales offers a range of machine platforms, including CNC Swiss machines, multifunction turn/mills, lathes and VMCs. The Tsugami S205/S206-II opposed gang tool CNC lathe has a 20-mm capacity with a maximum of 47 tool positions. It features eight backworking live tools, a Y-axis tool post, direct drive rotary guide bushing and a 3-toggle clamping system. The deep hole drilling post enables up to 140-mm drilling, while thermal displacement compensation comes standard.
The Tsugami B0325V-II is a 32-mm, 5-Axis vertical gang tool CNC lathe providing swiss-turning performance with 6-Axis flexibility. It features a 32-mm capacity and a vertical tool post with a total of 25 tool positions. The modular tool zone uses cartridge-type live tools, with up to 11 tools at 6,000 rpm. There are four backworking tools, a direct drive rotary guide bushing and 3-toggle clamping system. Its deep hole drilling post also enables up to 140-mm drilling, while thermal displacement compensation comes standard.
The Tsugami TMA8F is a 65-mm, 5-Axis turn/mill multifunction turning center. It features a 4-GB data server and a high-speed, automatic tool changer with a tool-to-tool speed of 0.8 second sec. A Capto C4 60-tool magazine is standard. According to the company, it works equally well with bar fed or chucked material. It has a 15-hp, built-in motor capable of milling center performance. It also offers a high-rigidity, cross-slide structure for delivering high accuracy in complex machining. It has a positioning repeatability of ±0.1 μm, an HP coolant through the tool spindle, a full C-Axis sub spindle, touch probe and glass scales on X, Y, Z axes.
Workholding for turning is usually fairly basic: The selection comes down to chucks or collets. This article looks at when to consider the collet chuck and what kind might be best for a given application.
This Florida medical manufacturer is an expert in the production of complex medical parts on CNC Swiss machines.
