PRODUCTS PRODUCTS 52 PRODUCTION MACHINING :: MARCH 2018 VMC Machines an Assortment of Parts Okuma's Genos M560-V vertical machining center combines a high column design and CAT 40 Big-Plus spindle to cut large, complex parts. The larger work envelope minimizes restrictions on workpieces, tool lengths and the rotary table, the company says. A rigid, thermally-stable, double-column construction enables the withstanding of thermal deformation. A 30-hp spindle with 146 foot-pounds of torque allows it to cut met- als such as titanium and Inconel as well as stainless steel and aluminum. According to the company, a separate automatic toolchanger door makes tool changing seamless without interrupting the machining process. The table moves only in Y, while the spindle moves in X and Z, enabling a smaller machine footprint, rapid feed rates, precise cutting and smooth surface finishes, the company says. :: Okuma America Corp. 704-588-7000, Lathe Cuts Parts with Three Cutting Tools Tsugami/Rem Sales' BW129Z is a 12-mm, nine-axis, split-slide lathe with a simultaneous three-path control system and dual independent gang slides. This machine can house 28 tools and is equipped with a FANUC 31i-B CNC. The nine-axis machine has three cutting tools, all cutting the part simultaneously, the company says. All three tools have inde- pendent feed rates, meaning shorter cycle times, allowing opera- tors to produce more parts faster. This allows the BW129Z to do pinch turning and pinch milling jobs. :: Tsugami/Rem Sales LLC 860-687-3400, SPTM & TMLR Thread Mills Scientific Cutting Tools Single Profile Thread Mills (SPTM) cut internal and external threads in a range of thread sizes with minimum side cutting pressure Long Reach Thread Mills (TMLR) have three teeth and a helical flute that excel in internal deep threads as well as hard-to-cut materials 805.584.9495 800.383.2244 Technical assistance is available in English and Spanish Single Point - Thread Mills - Port Tools - Indexable Tools - Specialty SPTM TMLR
