20 mm, Opposed Gang Tool CNC Lathe

Tsugami S206 Swiss Type CNC Lathe

Premium 6-Axis Swiss Turning Performance, Economical Price

The Tsugami S206, 6-axis Opposed Gang Tool CNC Lathe is suitable for variable volume production with a wide range of capability.  Its modular tooling layout can feature up to 15 different live tools, delivering enhanced capability and rapid changeover times.  

The S206 CNC Lathe features a Y-axis tool post which allows you to machine complex parts using the main and back spindle simultaneously.  Experience the flexibility of 6-axis control and the precision and accuracy of Swiss turning at an affordable price.

Key Advantages include:

  • Modular Tool Zone uses cartridge-type live tools, up to 15 – 8,000 rpm tools

  • Y-axis Tool Post delivers simultaneous complex machining of main / back spindle

  • Direct Drive Rotary Guide Bushing provides high speed and accurate machining

  • Deep Hole Drilling Post enables up to 100 mm drilling

  • High Rigidity Bed enables high-speed, high-accuracy performance

  • Fanuc 32i-B CNC Control

The Tsugami S206 CNC Lathe 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 CNC Lathe can use drawn bar stock instead of centerless ground stock, dramatically reducing remnant size and increasing shop flexibility.

Tsugami S206 CNC Lathe at a Glance

6-axis Swiss turning at an economical price.  This CNC Lathe is capable of simultaneous machining of complex parts and includes a backworking Y-axis for additional capability.  Modular tool zones and live-tool capacity (15) enhance the performance of this machine’s ability to cut parts in one set-up.


S206-II - Convertible

The S206-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.

By being “convertible”, the machine increases the shop’s flexibility to manufacture all types of small parts with speed, accuracy, and precision. Additional benefits to running without a guide bushing: much smaller remnants, ability to use ground bar stock, and faster speeds and surface finishes.
