Fully Automated Twin Spindle Lathe

"While Fuji Machine's ANW-3500 fully automated twin spindle lathe is impressive on its own, when combined with Fuji's fully automated HM-3400 milling machine (optimized to integrate), it opens up a whole new world of machining possibilities and efficiencies," said a company spokesperson. Both machines of this cell have built-in robots.

Ideal for automotive, energy, aerospace, construction and agriculture equipment applications, this turning and milling/drilling cell combination accommodates heavy workloads and large machine envelopes. Applications include large hubs and smaller diff cases, as well as disk brakes and rotors, flanges, hubs, differential cases, valves and seats, downhole subs and more.

The operator-friendly ANW-3500's dual spindles operate at 20/25 HP power each. An A2-6 spindle nose comes standard; an A2-8 spindle nose is available as an option for larger size chucks (12" - 15"). The ANW-3500's swing arm, dual hand robot can handle up to 7 kg (15.4 lbs.) per side. "The Z-axis stroke is substantially longer than conventional gantry loaded dual parallel spindle machines on the market, allowing for longer length parts," said a company spokesperson.

The modular design of Fuji's HM-3400 milling cell allows for line integration with Fuji's ANW, as well as ANS, CSD and TN models. The combination of the ANW-3500 and the HM-3400 offers drilling and milling as well as the turning operations integrated into a modular production line running parallel tasking at the same time, and enables a shorter takt time for higher volume of parts per shift.

Featuring 4 axes (XYZ and C), the HM-3400 is capable of 5-face machining in one chucking. Equipped with Fuji's own high-speed swing arm or gantry type robot, the HM-3400 provides workpiece loading and unloading efficiency. The tools are mounted in a circular arrangement. Axial and radial holders can be freely attached anywhere on the turret of the HM-3400. Attaching an axial holder diagonally creates a B-axis on the machining center for machining angular holes. Turret tool capacity of the HM-3400 is offered with turrets of 6, 10 and 15 tool stations.

Fuji machines are built for automation from the ground up. These machines employ built-in robotic automation, in-process auto gauging for quality control and are engineered with Fuji custom workholding, all from one source.
