The 2SI models uniquely connect two spindles, one turret and a Fanuc controller into a highly productive machine tool package. This 2-Spindle 1NC Lathe was developed from the architecture of "reducing idle time to the utmost limit."
Total of Processes 1st + 2nd 27 seconds
2-Spindle NC Lathe 2SI-6 Type
Total of Processes 1+2 Cycle Time 27.0 seconds
|SHIMADA 2SI-6||Different Company Standard Single Spindle Lathe|
|First Process||9.0 seconds||16.0 seconds|
|Second Process||18.0 seconds||25.0 seconds|
|First Process + Second Process||27.0 seconds||41.0 seconds|
Productivity 52% up
The machining time for the first process is short. In a nutshell, when machining by using a single spindle lathe, tasks need a short cycle time and a long loading time. The characteristics of the SHIMADA 2SI match up well with these conditions.
As a result, machine productivity is increased by 78% through the introduction of the SHIMADA 2SI.
The machining time of the second process is longer than the first; however, machine productivity is increased by 39%.
The total increase in machine productivity for the first and second processes is 52%. How about when using a 2-Spindle 2NC Lathe instead of a single spindle lathe?
Since there is a large difference between the first and second processes, the spindle on the first process side finishes processing first, stops rotating the spindle, and sits idle until the second process finishes.
We hope that the above information demonstrates to you that the SHIMADA 2SI Series reduces waste to the greatest extent possible, and that these are machines with which you can unquestionably generate profit.
