Running A Good Race
For this Missouri job shop, it’s not about what you call the machine tool, it’s about how you use it. The shop considers multi-spindle turning as simply using more than one spindle in various configurations best suited to the production requirements of the application.

Four-Spindle CNC Lathe
Kitako has added another four-spindle CNC lathe to its line: the HS3200i with ultra high-speed automated gantry loader. Available from SB Machine Tools, the lathe boasts X-axis gantry loading feed rates of 6,700 ipm. Combined, the four-spindle operation and gantry loading capability accomplish untended operation with no idle time for part loading/unloading.

Horizontal CNC Lathe With Four Spindles
With the introduction of the MT4-85 horizontal CNC lathe from SB Machine Tools, Kitako has applied its four-spindle technology to small parts turning. In small parts machining, a loading process plays a critical role in reducing overall cycle time. With Kitako's "load while machining" advantage, the loading time is minimized.
