12 mm, 4-Axis Opposed Gang Tool Automatic Lathe

Tsugami B0124-II Swiss Type CNC Lathe

Tsugami High Performance, Economical Price, 4-Axis Swiss Type Lathe

The Tsugami B0124-II Swiss Style Automatic Lathe uses the same rugged framework as the B0123-II, but adds a back spindle and 4 fixed tools to the configuration. This 4-axis turning center has basic back spindle capabilities along the Z2-axis and is able to eliminate many secondary operations. This convertible Swiss style lathe features Tsugami's time-tested sliding headstock technology - the fastest and most efficient way to cut small parts.

Economically priced like other B0 machines, the B0124-II turning center includes many high-end features such as Tsugami's gang type tool post, rigid cast iron frame, robust 12,000 rpm main and sub-spindle speed and a full NC package. This CNC automatic lathe offers a total of 17 tool positions: 9 OD tool positions and 8 fixed positions for flexible 4-axis machining. 

Key Advantages Include:

  • Enhanced 4-axis Swiss Style Lathe at minimal investment cost
  • Back Spindle Capability - Spindle plus 4 fixed tool positions
  • 17 Total Tool Positions - 9 OD + 4 fixed front and 4 fixed rear
  • 170 mm Stroke, 45 mm when used in chucker mode
  • Rapid Traverse Rate of 32 m/min - shortens idle and cycle times
  • Enriched NC Functions Standard - tool nose radius compensation, chamfering and corner rounding and cutoff detection, plus many more...
  • Fanuc 0i-TD CNC Control

The Tsugami B0124-II is CONVERTIBLE and may be run as a traditional sliding headstock Swiss Style Lathe using the guide bushing or run without the guide bushing with the addition of an optional chucker kit. When run as a chucker the turning center can use drawn bar stock instead of centerless ground stock, dramatically reducing remnant size and increasing shop flexibility.

At A Glance

B0124-II CNC Lathe At A Glance

Experience the Tsugami performance difference in an economically priced, enhanced 4-axis convertible opposed gang tool lathe.  Use the Tsugami B0124-II for traditional 12 mm Swiss turning or for machining parts smaller than 3:1 L/D ratio in chucker mode (optional conversion kit needed).


B0124-II - Convertible

The B0124-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 users 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.
