32 mm, 6-Axis Opposed Gang Tool CNC Lathe

Swiss Turning Performance, Job Shop 6-Axis Flexibility

The Tsugami B0326-II Swiss Type Lathe easily and quickly converts from direct-drive guide bushing barfed operation to nonguide bushing operation when fitted with an optional chucker kit. Ideal for round or prismatic parts, this added flexibility also reduces expensive material costs. Equipped with modular live tooling for quick changeovers and a large, easily accessible tool zone, the B0326-II Lathe is ergonomically designed for the North American market. A dual path Fanuc 32i-B CNC slashes cycle time by permitting true simultaneous operation of the main and sub spindle. The addition of a back rotary tool is optional, further enhancing the turning center’s capabilities.

  • Machine complex parts using the main and back spindle simultaneously
  • Live face and cross tool positions in a modular tool zone
  • Optional direct-drive rotary guide bushing
  • Sub side Y-axis
  • Optional angular live face drills and thread whirling attachments

The B0326-II CNC Lathe at a Glance

B0326-II Opposed Gang Tool

Swiss turning performance with job shop flexibility. The B0326-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).






B0326-II - Convertible

The B0326-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.
