Sub-Spindle, Multitasking Y-Axis Turning Center

Tongtai's iTD-2000YBC is a high precision CNC turning center cast from Meehanite iron. The iTD-2000YBC features a rigid, ergonomic and accurate 75° bed design for enhanced chip flow and operator accessibility. The 75° bed also simplifies the programming of the optional Y-axis as the Y-axis is perpendicular to the X-axis like a vertical machining center. High rapid-traverse rates using 45 mm roller type linear ways are also achieved to reduce non-cutting time.

X-axis cross travel is 9.05", Z-axis longitudinal travel is 23.6", B-axis sub-spindle travel is 24.8", and optional Y-axis travel is +/-2" from the center line. The main spindle is driven by a 20 HP, high torque motor that provides power and fast acceleration at 4,500 RPM. The 5,000 RPM sub-spindle is driven by a 10 HP high torque integral motor spindle. The spindles are synchronized on the fly for part transfer to the sub-spindle. Rapid traverse feedrates for X, Z and B-axes are 1,181"/min. and 590"/min. on Y. Standard equipment also includes a tool setter and chip conveyor.

A 12-station bi-directional servo BMT-65 (16 station BMT-55 optional) turret provides 0.3 second indexing and coolant through the toolholders. A full C-axis with live tools is standard for milling operations on both the main sub-spindles. The true linear Y-axis provides turret movement perpendicular to the X-axis for complex off-center milling functions and easy programming. The FANUC OiT-F CNC control is standard and fully loaded with features including Manual Guide i Conversational.
