Key Advantages include:

  • Basic, Dependable 3-Axis Swiss Style Lathe at minimal investment cost

  • 13 Tool Positions 9 OD and 4 Rotary

  • 170 mm Stroke, 45 mm when used in chucker mode

  • Rapid Traverse Rate of 32 m/min– shortens idle, cycle times

  • Enriched NC Functions Standard - tool nose radius compensation, chamfering and corner rounding, and cut0off detection, plus many more…

  • Fanuc 0i-TD CNC Control

The B0123-II is CONVERTIBLE and may be run as a traditional sliding headstock Swiss turn, using the guide bushing or run without the guide bushing with the addition of an optional chucker kit. When run as a chucker, the lathe can use drawn bar stock instead of centerless ground stock, dramatically reducing remnant size and increasing shop flexibility.

At A Glance

B0123-II CNC Lathe At A Glance

Experience the Tsugami performance difference in an economically priced 3-axis convertible opposed gang tool lathe. The B0 family of machines is configured to match your 12 mm and 20 mm manufacturing requirements – delivering Tsugami precision, accuracy, and performance in exactly the configuration and machine you need. Use the B0123-II for traditional 12 mm Swiss turning or for making parts smaller than 3:1 L/D ratio in chucker mode (optional conversion kit needed).


B0123-II - Convertible

The B0123-II may be run as a traditional Swiss style lathe using the guide bushing. A quick, easy-to-change (10 minutes) optional chucker kit allows you to run the machine without a guide bushing. This is typically used for parts with a length-to-diameter ratio less than 3:1, a significant percentage of small parts.

The ability to convert the machine increases the shop’s flexibility to manufacture all types of small parts with speed, accuracy, and precision. In chucker mode, operators can use drawn bar stock instead of centerless ground stock, which dramatically reduces remnant size.
