New Tsugami Swiss-Type/Turret Machine Offers Flexibility, Precision, Speed



[WINDSOR, CT - FEBRUARY 2008] Rem Sales, exclusive North American importer of Tsugami machine tools, announces the availability of a new machine that combines the benefits of a Swiss-turn and the flexibility of a turret machine. The "BH20SY" features a sliding headstock with gang tools, a 12-station turret with stationary or rotating tools, plus a back spindle. All three "paths" can work on parts simultaneously, reducing cycle times, and offer the capability to completely machine complex parts up to 20mm diameter in a single setup.

Adding to the BH20's productivity, spindle speeds up to 12,000 min-1 are possible on both the main and back spindles. Further, the BH20 can operate with or without a guide bushing so the most suitable operation for the workpiece length may be chosen. The spindle without a guide bushing doesn't require ground bars, enabling high speed and high precision when machining cold drawn bars.

Users may opt for Tsugami's automatic programming system permitting novice programmers to create CNC programs for complex, highly precise parts.
