B0204-II

20 mm, 4-Axis Opposed Gang Tool CNC Lathe

Tsugami B0204-II Swiss Type CNC Lathe


Tsugami High Performance, Affordable, 4-Axis Swiss Type Lathe

The B0204-II Swiss Type 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 CNC lathe has basic back spindle capability along the Z2-axis and is able to eliminate many secondary operations. This convertible Swiss style lathe features Tsugami's proven sliding headstock technology - the fastest and most efficient way to cut small parts.

Economically priced like other B0 machines, the B0204-II 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 manufacturing. 

Key Advantages Include:

  • Enhanced 4-axis Swiss Type 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, 45mm 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 B0204-II is CONVERTIBLE and may be run as a traditional sliding headstock Swiss Type 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 the remnant size and increasing shop flexibility.

B0204-II At A Glance

Experience the Tsugami performance difference in this economically priced, enhanced 4-axis convertible opposed gang tool CNC lathe. Use the B0204-II for traditional 20mm Swiss turning or for making parts smaller than 3:1 L/D ratio in chucker mode (optional conversion kit needed).

Convertible

B0204-II - Convertible

The B0204-II can be run as a traditional Swiss style lathe using the guide bushing. A quick, easy-to-change (10 minutes) optional chucker kit allows operators to run the machine without a guide bushing. This process 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.
