In 1986, a CNC Multispindle automatic lathe ( Multi-spindle screw machine with CNC slide ) was developed by us ( SHIMADA MACHINERY )for the first time in the world.
- Short Cycle Time
Rough Turning, Drill, Roll Threading Tapping etc at non-CNC position( hydraulic driven slide ), and finishing (such as OD,ID and single point threading) at the chaser type CNC slide.
Generally speaking, cycle time is approximately 4 times compared with single spindle NC lathes. Automatic loading time can be reduced to zero.( Loading can be executed during cutting.)
- Max turning diameter is φ60mm( 2.36" ).
- Easy tool Setting
a) Presetting may be done outside the machine by using Quick Change Tool Holder.
b) Finishing and complicated-configuration machining are done by the NC slide.
c) Easy setup to fully meet medium volume and variety production.
Contribute to labor saving, floor space saving, and energy saving.
- Wide tooling zone
Wide tooling zone and chip floor guarantee without obstacles chip and high production ratio. It also ensures easy tool setting.
- Corresponds to various FMS system
- High rigidity
a) The main end tool slide is guided along chevron-type (V-shaped) slideways which are supported by three-point.
b) Rigid box construction with hardened and hand scraped box slide ways.
- The number of max CNC slides is 3 (X1 / Z1 , X2 / Z2 , X3 / Z3)
- Contribute to high efficiency to various industry such as Automobile, Aerospace, Electric Devices, Construction Equipment・・・etc.
