Robotturn SwissTek 8AM-Series

X1-Y1-Z1-C1-X2-Y2-Z2-C2 with driven tools and subspindle

The SwissTek-A8M Series offers a sliding headstock Swiss-Type CNC Lathe with an optional Removable Guide Bushing that offers Precision, Reliability, Performance, Speed and Capability at a very economical price compared to the competition . The Use of NSK Bearings, Ball Screws and Super Precision Linear ways help to achieve optimal accuracy and repeatability on those tight tolerance parts.
The SwissTek-A8M Series  can have up to 20 Live Tool Positions with adapted toolholders and has a 20 or 26mm bar capacity with the Guide Bushing and without the guide bushing. Running as a Non-Guide-Bush-Type adds cost savings with shorter bar remnants eliminates the guide bushing and the need for centerless ground bar stock, it also allows for more concentric and rounder parts (Part Length Ratio for Removing Guide Bushing: Max. Part Length = 3.5 x Bar Dia.)

Y2-axis Machining Capability For Subspindle

Backmachining Versatility in 4-axis

With the optional Y2-axis function the SwissTek A8M-Series can proceed eccentric drilling, tapping, milling and different kind of complicated machining with the back spindle. 

Rear-end tool holder is available with 8 tools of ER-16 live tools which driven by 1.0 kW AC servo motor with high torque output.

Simultaneous Machining, Double Y-axis for Complex Machining For complex precision parts this machine has simultaneous machining capability on the main and sub-spindles. There is also +/-30 mm of travel on the Y2 backworking module which is equipped with 4/8 driven tools. The SwissTek A8M can accommodate a variety of tools for overlapping and simultaneous operations.
Both the main and sub-spindle, feature full C-axis capabilities and can perform fast and accurate backside machining. This Swiss-style design with or without guide bushings delivers versatility, rigidity, and high performance, perfect for short runs of complex parts made complete in a single set-up.
