B0126-III

12 mm, 6-Axis Opposed Gang Tool CNC Lathe

B0126-III Swiss Type Automatic CNC Lathe


Y-Axis Machining, 25 Tools, 6-Axis Swiss Turn

The B0 Family of Tsugami Swiss Type Automatic Lathes is designed to provide the exact capability and capacity you need at an affordable price. Each incremental model adds features to the core B0 Lathe, representing years of Tsugami testing and research.

The B0126-III 12mm 6-axis convertible Swiss turn adds Y2-axis capability to the back tool post for additional flexibility to the B0 configuration. Tool positions increase from 21 (B0125-III) to 25. This B0126-III CNC Lathe allows back milling operations to be overlapped with the machining operations on the main spindle, greatly reducing cycle time.

This CNC automatic lathe includes many high end features such as Tsugami's gang type tool post, rigid cast iron frame, 12,000 rpm main and sub spindle speed and the FANUC 32i-B control. The machine's footprint is small considering its complex part capability. 

Key Advantages Include:

  • Enhanced 6-axis Swiss Style Lathe at minimal investment cost
  • Y2 Axis Added to Back Tool Post enables multiple back milling operations plus simultaneous operation of main and sub spindles. 
  • 25 Total Tool Positions include multiple rotary and fixed tool configurations; 2,3, or 4 spindle Cross Drill Option and tooling
  • Back Milling Operations enable back slotting, back end milling, back cross drilling/tapping
  • 210 mm Stroke, 45 mm when used in chucker mode
  • Rapid Traverse Rate of 32m/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 32iB CNC Control

The Tsugami B0126-III is CONVERTIBLE and may be run as a traditional sliding headstock Swiss Turn 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

The Tsugami B0126-III is a 6-axis convertible opposed gang tool CNC lathe that adds Y2-Axis capability to the back tool post of the B0 configuration. Overlapped, simultaneous machining is enabled. Plus, back slotting, back end milling, and back cross drilling/tapping may be performed. Use the B0126-III for traditional 12 mm Swiss turning or operate in chucker mode when making parts smaller than 3:1 L/D ratio (optional conversion kit needed).

Convertible

B0126-III - Convertible

The B0126-III may be run as a traditional Swiss style lathe using the guide bushing. A quick, easy-to-change (10 minutes) optional chucker kit allows the machine to run without a guide bushing. This is typically used for parts with a length-to-diameter ratio of 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.
