Two-Turret Lathe machines shafts.

Press Release Summary:

Measuring 5 ft high with compact footprint, Model NZ-S1500 employs symmetrical design in which 2 turrets are aligned with spindle, which is mounted on vertical bed. Layout minimizes influence of heat, holding thermal displacement to under ±10 mm. Chips fall directly into chip pan, avoiding accumulation, while vertical protector prevents chips from reaching linear guide or ball screws. Model NZ-S1500 accommodates workpieces with machining diameter of 120 mm.

Mori Seiki's NZ-S1500 Offers Top Technology In A Compact Package

Innovative high-efficiency shaft machine is the world's smallest

Chicago, Illinois, July 6, 2006 - Mori Seiki is proud to announce the release of its new 2-turret shaft lathe, the NZ-S1500. Created specifically to machine shafts, the footprint of the NZ-S1500 is less than half the previous models, providing dramatic space reductions for production lines.

To increase productivity, the NZ-S1500 employs a symmetrical design in which the two turrets are aligned with the spindle, which is mounted on the vertical bed. This layout also serves to reduce the influence of heat and improve accuracy during continuous machining, holding thermal displacement to under ±10 mm.

The unique arrangement of the NZ-S1500's components also improves accessibility and chip disposal. Chips fall directly into the chip pan, avoiding accumulation, and a vertical protector prevents chips from reaching the linear guide or ball screws.

The NZ-S1500 can accommodate workpieces with a machining diameter of 120 mm and a standard machining diameter of 60~20 mm. A high-speed loader with a rotary hand function increases the efficiency of the machine.

In addition to its small footprint, the NZ-S1500 also measures just 5 feet in height, allowing the operator an easier line of sight of the surrounding production environment.

Mori Seiki produces extremely reliable machine tools and distributes worldwide. The U.S. headquarters is in Chicago with offices in Boston, Chicago, Cincinnati, Dallas, Detroit, Los Angeles, and New Jersey.
