Goodway Introduces New Maximum Performance CNC Turning Centers for 2012March 1, 2012
"Goodway has redesigned its GS-6000 series to incorporate a wide range of enhancements," said a company spokesperson. "With leading technologies and high quality components, the GS-6000 series maximum performance turning center combines a high rigidity box way bed with super large diameter servo indexing turret and 2-step gear spindle structure to provide high horsepower, high speed indexing and heavy-duty cutting capabilities. The long model is available with up to 3,300 mm the length, and the M model is available with live tooling turret and C-axis that provides the GS-6000 series with higher cutting flexibility and multi-tasking power."
The GS-6000 series features a large turret which offers a turret disk over 750 mm in diameter. Indexing times of 0.5 seconds from station to station and 1.5 seconds for stations at 180-degrees are achieved with servo indexing technology.
"It also features a 45-degree true slant bed with wide box ways and a large 2-speed head stock driven by a 50 HP FANUC motor. Axes rapids are 787 IPM on X-axis and 944 IPM on Z-axis," said the spokesperson. "The fully enclosed protection covers can isolate cutting chip and coolant inside the machine.
"Available live tooling and C-axis capabilities in the GS-6000 series allow the machine to perform multiple tasks on a workpiece, such as turning, milling, drilling and tapping. It cuts down manpower and cycle time while reducing accuracy lost, which will occur if the part is moved from machine to machine.
"For 2012, GOODWAY engineers reevaluated the machines to make everything the operator touches work even better. For example, the machines' windows and doors move more smoothly and close tightly. The new Goodway thin-design control flat mounts directly to the enclosure, providing a lighter but more stable operator interface than the previous version, and there's a convenient storage compartment on side of machine."
