Hybrid Swiss CNC Lathe for Complex Parts Completed in One Operation

The Ganesh CNC Swiss lathe series, which includes the twin-spindle SL-20Y2 8-axis 20 mm Swiss lathe, addresses the need of getting work up to o3/4" done efficiently in just one operation with all of the axial and radial milling features accurately timed and deburred. "Getting the work completed without building fixtures for follow-on operations and tying up multiple machines and operators is true seamless machining efficiency," said a company spokesperson.

The Ganesh multitasking CNC Swiss lathes start with the 8-axis SL-20Y2 20 mm machine, which can be operated with or without a guide bushing. The 10,000 RPM main spindle is powered by a 5 HP spindle motor and the 5 HP sub-spindle turns at 8,000 RPM. Thirty tool toolholders are standard with the basic machine, of which eight tools are driven ER-16 collet spindles. The main spindle can bring 17 tools to work the part and the sub-spindle can utilize 13 tools in the basic machine configuration. Many tooling options are available to address the specific tooling needs of each workpiece. All Ganesh machines are built in a modern Taiwanese factory and feature a high-performance C-axis with 0.001° resolution on both the main and sub-spindle for accurately timed axial and radial milling features.

A parts catcher and outgoing parts conveyor is provided on all Ganesh multitasking machines to facilitate the careful removal of valuable parts from the machine without damaging the surface finish. A cut-off confirmation sweep-arm switch is provided to ensure that the part was separated from the barstock successfully. Cutting oil flow confirmation monitoring is provided to ensure that the cutting oil is lubricating the cutting tools when the pump is turned on.

Ganesh Machinery also offers 32 mm and 42 mm Swiss CNC lathes and larger multitasking CNC lathes, vertical milling centers and integral pallet changing vertical milling centers.
