The 2 SI-6/8 2-Spindle 1NC Lathe was developed from the architecture of “reducing idle time to the utmost limit."

  • Collet chuck, 6", 8", 10", 12" chucks
  • Loading with one spindle while processing with the other. Chip to Chip time “2 seconds.” Spindle index time “0.9 seconds.”
  • This design, with the chucking position outside the machine, leads to easy manual loading/unloading and chuck exchange
  • Simultaneous processing of the front and back side of workpieces with one machine

    This lathe is optimal for the following types of work:
  • Tasks that need a short cycle time and a long loading time
  • Task with a short cycle time (work with a large loading time to cycle time ratio)
  • Tasks with a big difference between the 1st and 2nd process cycle times
  • Task that requires a large amount of time for chucking under manual loading condition
