26 mm, 6-Axis Opposed Gang Tool CNC Lathe

Swiss Turning Performance, Job Shop 6-Axis Flexibility

The B0 family of Tsugami Swiss Type Lathes is designed to give you exactly the capability and capacity you need at an affordable price. Each incremental model adds features to the core B0 machine and bed and represents years of Tsugami testing and research.

The B0266 26 mm 6-axis convertible Swiss Type Lathe adds Y2-axis capability to the back tool post, a standard 4-spindle cross rotary tool and C axis to each lathe. Tool positions increase to 31 standard and 43 optional from the 5-axis B0 model. The B0266-II allows back CNC milling operations to be overlapped with the turning 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 frams, 10,000 rpm main / 10,000 sub spindle speeds and the FANUC 32i-B control. The machine's shop footprint is small considering its complex part capability.

Key Advantages Include:

  • 6-Axis Swiss Style Lathe with Enhanced Y-Axis Capability simultaneously machines parts requiring complex back machining
  • Modular Tool Zone uses cartridge type live tools
  • 21 Tool Positions Standard, Optional 43: Combination of rotary tools, ID holders and turning holders
  • Additional Tool Post Beside Back Spindle - Deep Hole Drilling capability up to 100mm
  • Optional Back Spindle Rotary Tool - Off-center drilling/tapping and end milling may be performed simultaneously with main spindle
  • 270 mm Stroke, 50mm when used in chucker mode
  • Rapid Traverse Rate of 32 m/min - shortens idle and cycle times
  • Fanuc 32i-B CNC Control

The Tsugami B0206-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 lathe can use drawn bar stock instead of centerless ground stock, dramatically reducing remnant size and increasing shop flexibility.

B0266-II CNC Lathe At A Glance

Swiss turning performance with job shop flexibility.  The B0266-II 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 B0266-II for traditional 26 mm Swiss turning or for making parts smaller than 3:1 L/D ratio in chucker mode (optional conversion kit needed).


B0266-II - Convertible

The B0266-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.
