26 mm, 5-Axis Opposed Gang Tool CNC Lathe

Swiss Turning Performance, Job Shop 5-Axis Flexibility

The B0265 26mm 5-axis CNC lathe is the basic building block for the 26mm Swiss turn category in the B0 family. This economical turning center comes loaded with high performance features, including a 4-Spindle Cross Rotary Tool as standard on the front tool post and a deep-hole drill holder (up to 100mm length) as standard next to the back spindle. 

The B0265-II includes Tsugami's gang type tool post, rigid cast iron frame and 10,000 rpm main spindle speed. This CNC automatic lathe offers a total of 27 tool positions in standard configuration, 39 in optional configuration. The modular tool zone makes it easy to change rotary tools, ID holders and turning holders. 

Key Advantages Include:

  • Enhanced 5-axis Swiss Style Lathe at minimal investment cost
  • Modular Tool Zone uses cartridge type live tools for maximum flexibility
  • 27 Tool Positions Standard, Optional 39: Combination of rotary tools, ID holders and turning holders
  • Additional Tool Post Beside Back Spindle - Deep Hole Drilling capability up to 100mm
  • Optional Rotary Tool Position - Back Spindle
  • 270 mm Stroke, 50 mm when used in chucker mode
  • Rapid Traverse Rate of 32 m/min - shortens idle and cycle times
  • Fanuc 0i-TD CNC

The Tsugami B0265-II is CONVERTIBLE and may be run as a traditional 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 lathe can use drawn bar stock instead of centerless ground stock, dramatically reducing remnant size and increasing shop flexibility.

B0265-II CNC Lathe At A Glance

Swiss Turning Performance, Job Shop 5-Axis Flexibility.  The 26 mm versions of the Tsugami B0 family of CNC lathes begin with this rugged performing 5 axis, 27 tool (std) machine.  Generous standard features not typically found on an economically priced basic Swiss turn.  This  5-axis convertible opposed gang tool lathe is a solid performer in the B0 series.  Use the B0325-II for traditional 32 mm Swiss turning or for making parts smaller than 3:1 L/D ratio in chucker mode (optional conversion kit needed).


B0265-II - Convertible

The B0265-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.
