Tsugami/Rem Sales to Demo New CNC Lathes at WESTEC 2015

The Tsugami S206-II Swiss Type CNC Lathe with Tsugami Automation 400LS Laser Cutting System will make its first West Coast appearance at the WESTEC show. The Tsugami “LaserSwiss” combines 6-axis Swiss machining with laser cutting on one machine, allowing manufacturers to perform Swiss turning and laser cutting operations with one setup. All operations are programmed and driven from the machine’s Fanuc 32i-B control. The nozzle standoff adjustment is NC controlled, and the laser’s frequency, pulse width, focus and power are all adjustable ‘on the fly.’

“This machine tool has the potential to profoundly change the way small, tubular parts are made,” Tsugami/Rem Sales Vice President Mike Mugno said. “It replaces two machines with one, eliminates the need for multiple part setups, and significantly reduces part production time.”

The new Tsugami 20 mm 9-Axis BW209Z Split-Slide Swiss Type CNC Lathe will make its U.S. debut at WESTEC. “This CNC lathe is so new that only a handful of people have seen it perform live demonstrations,” Mugno said, adding that it will be shipped directly from Tsugami headquarters in Japan just in time for the show.

Other Tsugami CNC machine tools scheduled for display at WESTEC include the B0206-II and B0326-II 6-axis Swiss Turns. The 20 mm and 32 mm lathes, respectively, are both convertible, meaning they can be run as traditional sliding headstock Swiss turns with a guide bushing or as chuckers without their guide bushings.

To see live cutting demos of these Swiss Type CNC Lathes at WESTEC, visit the Tsugami/Rem Sales booth, #1734. The show runs September 15 – 18 at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles, CA.

Local manufacturers unable to attend the show are invited to schedule private machine tool demonstrations at the new Tsugami Technical Center in Fullerton, CA, or at Tsugami/Rem Sales’ distribution partner Ellison Technologies’ California facilities in Santa Fe Springs and Freemont.
