Manufacturer: TSUGAMI
Series: Opposed Gang Tool
Type: Swiss Turning

The Tsugami SS26 opposed gang tool CNC lathe is a rugged performer capable of taking on deep cuts while maintaining simultaneous machining on the main and sub spindle. Tsugami’s unique modular tool zone is a key component of the SS series of Swiss type lathes and allows easy replacement of rotary tools, indexed tool holders and turning tool holders. The result? Faster set-up and changeover times, greater flexibility in scheduling long and short part runs.

The SS26 lathe’s ability to use the main and sub spindle independently and simultaneously dramatically cuts cycle time as well. Overall, tool modularity, rugged construction and simultaneous machining capability transform the exceptional Swiss turn into a multi-faceted machine tool for long and short run small parts.

Key Advantages

  • Unique Tsugami modular tool zone: change part runs quickly, handle long and short run jobs easily. Live tools moved at will!
  • Live face/cross tools, main and sub spindle – enable simultaneous machining on both spindles
  • 270mm stroke easily handles long pieces
  • Handles complex parts – in traditional Swiss or “chucker” mode
  • Large tool zone facilitates easy access to work area to change tooling
  • Fanuc 31i-B CNC control

The SS26 CNC lathe is convertible and may be run as a traditional sliding headstock Swiss type lathe using the guide bushing or run without the guide bushing with the addition of an optional “chucker” kit. When run as a “chucker” the lathe can use drawn bar stock instead of centerless ground stock, dramatically reducing remnant size and increasing shop flexibility.
