We have added our second Tsugami lathe to our multi-axis CNC Mill/Turn department. The Tsugami M08SY Turning Center has a larger thru bore to accommodate larger diameter material to enhance cycle times with its Edge Technologies auto loader bar feeder. The Y-axis allows you to perform highly complex machining, such as turning, drilling, boring, cross-drilling and CNC milling. The main and sub-spindle are equipped with integral built-in spindle motors which minimize vibration and provide superior accel/decel for heavy duty cutting and fine finishing. The Y-axis enables off center CNC milling of complex parts and incorporating the sub-spindle eliminates the need for secondary operations. Ideal for a wide range of applications, the M08SY is built for high accuracy, high production machining. The Y-axis enables turret tool positioning above or below center. The robust 12-position turret mounted to the Y-axis allows users to mount driven tooling at any turret position for use on the main or sub-spindle. This tool zone flexibility coupled with the C-axis provides the capability and flexibility to machine virtually any feature and drop your part complete in one clamping. It has the Fanuc Oi-TD Control and a Edge Technologies Rebel 80 bar feeder.
We also recently have added a larger manual Brown & Sharpe CMM in our inspection area to not only allow for inspection of larger parts but to assist in improving efficiencies with our extensive inspection requirements. This is our fourth Brown & Sharpe CMM with two of them having articulating motorized probes.
