9-Axis and LaserSwiss Machines at MD&M West 2018

Tsugami/Rem Sales, a North American importer of Precision Tsugami machine tools, has announced that it will demonstrate the Tsugami BW129Z and the Tsugami SS207-5AX LaserSwiss at the MD&M West Expo in Anaheim, CA, February 6-8, 2018.

The Tsugami BW129Z is a 12 mm 9-axis split-slide lathe with a simultaneous 3-path control system and dual independent gang slides. This machine can house 28 tools and is equipped with a FANUC 31i-B CNC.

"The greatest benefit of a 9-axis machine is that it has three cutting tools, all cutting the part simultaneously," Tsugami/Rem Sales Vice President Michael Mugno said. "All three tools have independent feedrates meaning shorter cycle times, allowing operators to produce more parts, faster. The BW129Z is perfect for pinch turning and pinch milling jobs."

Rem Sales will also demonstrate the Tsugami SS207-5AX LaserSwiss - a 7-axis Swiss Turn with a servo-driven B-axis that combines Swiss style machining with laser cutting on one machine, allowing manufacturers to perform Swiss turning and laser cutting operations with a single set-up. All operations are programmed and driven from the machine's FANUC 31i-B5 control. The laser nozzle standoff adjustment is NC controlled, and the laser's power level, frequency, pulse width and lens focus are all immediately adjustable. The SS207-5AX LaserSwiss holds 33 tools, plus the SPI Fiber Laser, which is available in 250W or 400W configurations.

"The addition of a second laser head for welding provides enormous flexibility for end users," Tsugami Automation Vice President Graham Noake said. "This allows operators to reflow a swaged tube end, and they can weld two pieces together, then machine them."

Manufacturers unable to attend the show are invited to schedule private machine tool demonstrations at the Tsugami Technical Center in Fullerton, CA, or at Tsugami/Rem Sales' distribution partner Ellison Technologies' California facilities in Santa Fe Springs and Freemont.
