B0326-III - 32 mm, 6-Axis Opposed Gang Tool CNC Lathe

Swiss turning performance with job shop flexibility. The B0326-III 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 B0326-III for traditional 32 mm Swiss turning or for making shorter parts with the included chucker kit.

Swiss Turning Performance, Job Shop 6-Axis Flexibility

The Tsugami B0326-III Swiss Type Lathe easily and quickly converts from direct-drive guide bushing barfed operation to non-guide bushing operation when fitted with a the included 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-III CNC 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 8 live backworking tools, further enhances the turning center’s capabilities.
