Miyano's New BX-26S Dual Spindle Gang Tool Lathe Offers Complete Part Machining In A Single Setup

Wood Dale, IL - (August 1, 2005) New from Miyano, the BX-26S gang tool lathe with two spindles offers complete part machining of complex barwork (1" diameter and under) in a single setup. Two gang slides and a 3D linear turret further contribute to the BX26S' precision and faster cycle times.

The BX-26S' 3D linear turret and traverse-type identical left and right spindles, both with 5 HP, ensure stable cutting from end to end, and make the BX-26S ideal for long shaft work. High speed turning of 8,000 RPM maximum is possible by built in spindle motors and high-rigidity linear guides. The built in motors with the same collet capacity also allow faster cycle times due to overlapping operations. The elimination of a guide bushing speeds up operation time with less maintenance, increased accuracy and higher rigidity.

Ease of operation and set-up is possible by Y Axis & C Axis on either spindles with 8 revolving tools allowing Op.10 and Op. 20 machining in one set-up without handling. Tool-to-tool change time is fast; chip-to-chip is 1 second. Easy tool adjustment is also possible.

The compact BX-26S (87" x 52") also offers revolving tool (8 tools max at 4,000 RPM max), L-spindle brake, cut-off confirmation (by spindle torque), parts catcher & parts conveyor, high pressure coolant (160 psi), right spindle inner coolant and all axis rapid traverse (944 IPM) and an optional hinge type chip conveyor (right side discharge). Miyano is known worldwide as a leader in precision machine technology. Their U.S. facility houses over 50,000 stock parts, making it the backbone of Miyano's superior service department. Miyano provides complete technical support and service.
