MODERN EQUIPMENT REVIEW SPOTLIGHT | Turning MMS DECEMBER 2018 106 Slant-Bed Lathe Provides Rigidity, Thermal Stability, Precision Turning Center Reduces Setup Time Hwacheon's C2 multi-process turning center with Y- and C-axis control is designed to manufacture parts with complicated shapes in a single chucking operation. The turning center offers ease of use and efficiency, according to the company. Designed with a triple-stack-turret toolchanger, the machine holds as many as 30 tools. This reduces setup time, enables tooling of multiple jobs and suits short production runs. The center is designed to minimize thermal displacement, and the arrangement of units in the heat-symmetrical structure provides thermal stability. The company's original cooling system enables the rotary tool module inside the turret to maintain process- ing quality, even during prolonged operation. In addition, the independent orthogonal structure of the X, Y and Z axes reduces feed error. The swing over bed measures 28.7", with a maximum cutting diameter of 24.8" and a maximum cutting length of 22.2". The spindle rotates as fast as 5,000 rpm, and the 8" chuck on the main spindle accommodates a max- imum bar size of 2.56". A range of options are available, including an automatic tool presetter, a parts catcher with conveyor belt and a subspindle. | Hwacheon Machinery America Inc. | 847-573-0100 Two-Axis Lathe Features Highly Rigid Construction 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 applica- tions such as turning, drilling, boring and thread cutting. Options include the addition of high-pressure coolant, foot pedals and a chip conveyor. | Tsugami/Rem Sales LLC | 860-687-3400 Racer Machinery International's Standard Modern CNC S-22 slant-bed lathe features hand-scraped surfaces, a built-in slant that offers more rigidity, thermal stability and precision. Three-point roller bearings, a dynami- cally balanced spindle and ground precision ballscrews are standard. The S-22 features a hydraulics system as well as automatic lubrication, coolant, a chip conveyor and multiple windows. Other features include a 22" swing over bed; a turning diameter of 22", 24" or 46"; and a 10-station VDI turret. | Racer Machinery International Inc. | 519-623-6223
