Swiss-Type Turning Centers offer modular spindle construction.
Press Release Summary:
July 15, 2014 - Available with sub-spindle, live tooling, and bar feeder, YAMA SEIKI-GOODWAY SW Series includes Models SW-20, SW-32, and SW-42 with max machining diameters of 20, 32, and 42 mm, respectively. Spindle can be exchanged to be bush-type or bushless-type depending on different work requirements. Fully enclosed splashguards keep chips and coolant contained, while C3 class hardened and precision ground ball screws ensure accuracy, and pretension on all axes minimizes thermal distortion.
Original Press Release
Yama Seiki-Goodway SW Series Swiss-Type Turning Centers Maximum Performance Swiss Turning Centers
Press release date: July 9, 2014
"Yama Seiki introduces its new maximum performance YAMA SEIKI-GOODWAY Swiss-type turning centers with leading technology and high quality components," said a Yama Seiki spokesperson. "The YAMA SEIKI-GOODWAY Swiss Type turning center SW machines provide the best solution for work pieces with diameters smaller than 42mm." Machines in the SW series include the SW-20 (20mm max. machining diameter), the SW-32 (32mm max. machining diameter) and the SW-42 (42mm max. machining diameter). Additionally, the SW series machines are available with a sub-spindle, live tooling and a bar feeder.
"The YAMA SEIKI-GOODWAY SW series offers more flexible operations such as turning, milling and cross drilling. With a different combination of power systems, main-spindle, sub-spindle, front-end tooling, rear-end tooling, C-axis and live tools, the work piece can be finished on the machine and this also allows two operations to be machined simultaneously."
The YAMA SEIKI-GOODWAY SW Series features modular spindle construction. The spindle can be exchanged to be bush-type or bushless-type depending on different work requirements. The bushless design is suitable for machining cold-forged bar and the remaining bar can be less than 50mm to save material cost. The bush-type can be rotated with high speed for less surface damage and to increase working performance.
Fully enclosed splashguards keep chips and coolant contained for a safe, clean working environment. "All spindle and servo motors are Fanuc high performance components to ensure peak machining performance and accuracy," said the spokesperson. "C3 class hardened and precision ground ball screws ensure high accuracy and durability. Plus, pretension on all axes minimizes thermal distortion."
Automatic lubrication is provided to all slide ways, ball screws and vital components. Maintenance-free piston distributors deliver a precise quantity of oil to each lubrication point. Distribution is automatically shut off during idling to prevent waste. The piston distributors are non-clogging and the design allows way lube consumption to be minimized.
An optional A/C unit is available to control the temperature and humidity inside the electrical cabinet. This helps to extend the life of electrical components.
The YAMA SEIKI-GOODWAY SW Series are rigid, fast moving and available with fully loaded tooling. With all the features this series of machine have, they allow high production performance.
