High Volume Production of Long Rods & Shafts on a Swiss-Style Lathe
July 24, 2015
Swiss-style sliding headstock CNC machine tools are ideal for high volume output, provided they have the necessary rigidity and accuracy. In this video you’ll see how a Nomura NN20UB8 turning machine equipped with a Quick Load Servo bar loader makes long shafts from blanks with no operator intervention.
The high capacity bar loader automatically loads the blanks and a Gosiger High Volume designed device automatically unloads the finished workpieces. In between the highly efficient lathe uses multiple tools, 4 live spindles and 3 drilling stations to quickly and flawlessly perform a variety of operations.
