Tsugami Automated CNC Lathe Turning Machine

WESTEC 2017 booth will include the Tsugami LaserSwiss, a 20mm, 7-axis Swiss-style CNC Lathe with two fully integrated SPI lasers, one for laser cutting and one for welding. The SS207-5AX LaserSwiss is designed and built by Tsugami/Rem Sales’ sister company, Tsugami Automation. The laser cutting and welding heads can be mounted on either the X/1, Y/1 or B axes, and all operations are programmed and driven from the machine’s FANUC 32i-B control.

The Tsugami BW129Z is frequently used for pinch turning and pinch milling, the 9-axis, 12mm capacity split-slide CNC precision Swiss-style lathe can house 28 tools and is equipped with a Fanuc 31i-B CNC.

Other Tsugami machine tools scheduled for display include the B0385L high performance gang lathe, and the heavy-duty M08SY CNC turning center.

Attendees can also see the B0326-II, a 32mm 6-axis Swiss-type lathe with Fanuc 32i-B control, slashing cycle times with true simultaneous operation of the main- and sub-spindle.
