Newest Tsugami Machine Tools and Technologies

Tsugami/Rem Sales, the exclusive North American importer of Precision Tsugami machine tools, will feature nine machines, two robots and new technology.

Tsugami/Rem Sales will debut the SS38MH-5AX, a 38 mm chucker-convertible, B-axis sliding headstock lathe that performs full 5-axis simultaneous machining. The Tsugami SS38MH-5AX features a 40-tool magazine, 10 tools on the back tool post, and an optional two tools on the deep hole drill holder. The linear glass scales on the X1-, Y1-, Z1- and X2-axis slide are provided as standard for high accuracy machining and repeatability.

"The SS38MH-5AX is a powerhouse Swiss-type lathe that exhibits all of the benefits of a turn/mill machine," said Michael Mugno, Vice President, Tsugami/Rem Sales. "The SS38MH-5AX's backworking overlap with live tool capability allows for multiple tools in the cut and shorter cycle times."

The Tsugami M08SY Gantry and an innovative LaserSwiss will also be featured.

The Tsugami M08SY with gantry is a heavy duty turning center with gantry, Y-axis and sub-spindle, available in two and eight stocker options. The main and back spindles on the M08SY with gantry are equipped with integral built-in spindles, which minimize vibration and provide enhanced responsiveness for heavy duty cutting and fine finishing of workpieces.

Other featured Tsugami machines include:

  • B0326-II: 32 mm, 6-axis convertible opposed gang tool Swiss-type CNC automatic lathe. A dual path FANUC 32i-B CNC minimizes cycle time by permitting true simultaneous operation of the main and sub-spindle.
  • SS327-5AX: 32 mm, chucker-convertible, sliding headstock Swiss-type lathe with servo-driven B-axis
  • BW129Z: 12 mm, 9-axis Swiss-type lathe with three-path control system and dual independent gang slides
  • B038T: 38 mm high performance turning center with rotary tool capability that can perform seven types of simultaneous machining operations
  • B0205-III: 20 mm, chucker-convertible, 5-axis opposed gang tool Swiss-type CNC lathe with 21 tool positions
  • S206: 20 mm, 6-axis Swiss turn that includes a backworking Y-axis and modular tools.

New to Tsugami/Rem Sales is Oscillation Turning for 20 mm machines. This technology will be demonstrated live on the Tsugami B0205. A benefit of Oscillation Turning is increased chip control by breaking chips, especially when cutting materials such as plastic, aluminum, Inconel and copper. The Z-axis oscillates to break up chips and prevent bird-nesting by alternating cutting depths as the material is fed through the machine. This feature also reduces heat generation.

An additional new technology featured in the Tsugami/Rem Sales booth is Gosiger Automation's robotic loading system, which will be shown on the Tsugami S206. It offers the ability to automate for lights-out machining.

MachineMetrics will also be highlighted in the Tsugami/Rem Sales booth. Tsugami/Rem Sales recently announced an integrated partnership with MachineMetrics for remote machine health monitoring and improved customer support for all Swiss-type Tsugami platforms.
