Rem Sales to Introduce Several New Machine Tools at IMTS 2014
Windsor, CT- July 7, 2014 - Rem Sales, the exclusive North American importer of Precision Tsugami machine tools, announced today the details of its IMTS 2014 technology display, which features four new machines that have never been displayed at an IMTS.
Rem Sales will unveil its new Tsugami S206-II with Tsugami Automation 400LS Laser Cutting System, which combines 6-axis Swiss machining with laser cutting on one machine. The new Tsugami “Swiss Laser,” developed by Rem Sales’ sister company, Tsugami Automation (Tsugami Automation), allows manufacturers to perform turning and laser cutting operations with one setup. All operations are programmed and driven from the machine’s Fanuc 32i-B NC control.
“I have yet to put anyone in front of this machine who has not been blown away,” Tsugami Automation Laser Product Manager Dale White said. “The beauty of this system is that it can be used as a regular Swiss turning machine when that’s all that’s required and used for laser cutting when it’s needed,” White noted. “Nobody else can do this.”
The Tsugami SS20M-5AX, SS327-5AX and M08SY machines will also debut at IMTS 2014.
The SS20M-5AX Multifunction Machine combines the versatility of a CNC automatic lathe with the functionality of a vertical machining center. It features 5-axis simultaneous control, a B-axis tool spindle, and a 24-tool automatic tool changer. The SS20M-5AX can produce highly complex parts up to 20mm in diameter in a single setup.
The SS327-5AX is a high-performance 7-axis Swiss Turn that performs continuous live cutting using a Servo-driven, swiveling B-axis. The B-axis live tools (four front and four rear) machine in coordination with the C axis, delivering the ability to cut precise angles and sculpted contours on parts up to 32mm in diameter.
Tsugami’s new M08SY CNC Turning Center with back spindle and Y axis can hold up to 12 live tools and is ideal for milling, drilling, cross-drilling and boring.
Other machines on display at IMTS 2014 include the B038T 38mm High Performance Gang/Turret Lathe, B0206-II 20mm 6-Axis Swiss Turn, B0326-II 32mm 6-Axis Swiss Turn, and the B0325-II 32mm 5-Axis Swiss Turn, which will feature an integrated Fanuc robot and automatic bowl feeder. All machines will perform live cutting demonstrations throughout the show.
