SS207-5AX

20 mm B-Axis Sliding Headstock Swiss Type Lathe

Tsugami SS207-5AX Swiss Type CNC Lathe


Ultimate Swiss Turn for Complex Small Parts

The Tsugami SS207-5AX Swiss Type Lathe with B-Axis is a high performance turning center which performs continuous live cutting using a Servo-driven B-axis. The live tools mounted on the B-axis (three front, three rear) machine in coordination with the C-axis, delivering the ability to cut precise angles and sculpted contours. The swiveling B-axis transforms this Swiss type lathe into a multitasking turning center which can drill, tap and end mill any angle. 

The modular tool zone makes it easy to change cartridge-type live cross and face tools in either the main or sub spindle, decreasing changeover time. Multiple angle cuts by the same tool also decreases the total number of tools required. For machining complex shapes, this is the ultimate Swiss type lathe. 

Key Features Include:

  • B-axis Swiveling Tool Spindle can machine virtually any angle
  • B-axis Live Tools (three front, three rear) create sculpted shapes
  • Simultaneous 5-Axis Machining with CAD/CAM
  • B-axis Control enables thread whirling or hobbing without dedicated attachments
  • Modular Tool Zone, cartridge-type live cross and face tools, main and sub spindle
  • Fanuc 31i-B5 CNC

The Tsugami SS207-5AX CNC Lathe 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 CNC Lathe can use drawn bar stock instead of centerless ground stock, dramatically reducing remnant size and increasing shop flexibility.

At a Glance

The hallmark of the Tsugami SS207-5AX Swiss Type Lathe, in addition to Swiss turning speed and accuracy, is its ability to cut contoured shapes using a swiveling B-axis. This capability greatly enhances the CNC lathe's ability to produce high precision parts with sculpted geometries.
