Tsugami/Rem Sales offers the Tsugami M08J, an highly rigid two-axis turning center with a manual tailstock, programmable quill and A2-6 spindle nose. The lathe’s rigid construction uses boxed ways for the X axis and oversized linear guides for the Z axis for heavy-duty machining. Thermal displacement compensation comes standard on the M08J, which boosts machine accuracy by measuring the thermal displacement using the touch sensors installed on the X-axis slide. 

With an 8" chuck, an eight-station automatic turret and a FANUC 0i-TF control, the lathe handles applications such as turning, drilling, boring and thread cutting. Options include the addition of high pressure coolant, foot pedals and a chip conveyor.
