Compact And Flexible Horizontal CNC Lathe

Okuma’s 2SP-150H horizontal twin spindle lathe offers high metal removal rates in a small space and is suitable for small part CNC machining. The userfriendly front facing spindles allow easy and fast access to the workpiece and tooling. By adding a high-speed 3-axis Okuma gantry loader, parts can be loaded and unloaded automatically. The dual spindles and gantry loader reduce cycle time and maximize productivity.

The integral bed and base, cross slide, headstock, tailstock and turret form a balanced rigid structure. Robust ball screws generate slideway movement to both axes. The 2SP-150H is equipped with a 6” or 8” chuck and optional 6,000 RPM spindle speed for increased flexibility. Okuma’s Intelligent Technology Thermo-Friendly Concept is a standard feature and achieves enhanced thermal stability and accuracy.

The 2SP-150H has no machine obstructions so chips fall directly onto a perforated chip pan, allowing coolant to flow in to the coolant tank. An optional lift-up chip conveyor is available for large machining jobs.

Key features of the Okuma 2SP- 150H horizontal lathe:

• Max turning diameter ø150 mm (ø5.91”)

• Spindle nose type 140 flat

• Speed range 50 ~ 4,500 RPM

• Standard power 11/7.5 kW (15/10 HP)

• Rapid traverse XZ 24 m/min (945 IPM).

Features of the Okuma gantry loader:

• Drive 3-axis servo (XYZ)

• Working range X: 2,558 mm (100.71”) (beam over both ends)

• Working range YZ: 500 x 210 mm (19.69” x 8.27”)

• Rapid traverse (XYZ) 150 x 120 x 55 m/min (492 x 394 x 180 FPM)

• Hands 3-jaw chuck; jaw stroke: ø30 mm (1.18”).

For larger turning diameter work, up to 250 mm, this configuration is also available as the 2SP-250H.

Synova Opens New Micro-Machining Center In Secaucus, NJ

Synova, a manufacturer of highprecision laser cutting systems, has relocated its North American Micro- Machining Center (MMC) operations to Secaucus, NJ. The MMC offers laser machining services such as application trials, single and recurring cutting jobs and machine demonstrations. The new MMC will house two Laser MicroJet systems, the new 5-axis LCS 50 machine to be used for 3-D shaping and machining and the versatile LCS 300 for 2-D machining of parts up to 300 mm x 300 mm in size.

“All Synova machines incorporate Synova’s unique waterjet guided laser technology (Laser MicroJet), which is based on the patented approach of entrapping a cylindrical laser beam within a hair-thin waterjet, resulting in perfectly parallel walls, tight kerf widths, smooth cut surfaces and sharp edges,” said a company spokesperson. “The technique enables the surface to be cooled by the water between laser pulses, thereby minimizing the heat affected zone and its related defects. The water also cleans the surface, reducing post-machining processing requirements.”

“I am happy to add yet another micro-machining center to our global network of offices,” said Dr. Bernold Richerzhagen, founder and present CEO of Synova. “Regional centers offer a novel way our customers can leverage the unique value of the Laser MicroJet technology for their specific application and needs.”

“The LCS 50 is the perfect addition to our base LCS 300 capabilities. The 5- axis LCS 50-5 is an excellent solution for small parts such as natural and industrial diamond applications, and medical micro-parts, typically processed with 30 to 70-microns kerfs,” said Dr. Benjamin Carron, Global Director of Applications at Synova. “Customers benefit from Synova’s unique expertise as an industrial micro-machining solutions provider; leveraging a knowledge base across multiple industries that have a common need for high precision and expanded hardware/ software capabilities.”

Ramping Cutter For Aluminum Machining

The M2131 Sky·tec Ramping Cutter from Walter is designed to provide higher levels of process reliability in the machining of non-ferrous metals, such as aluminum wrought alloys or aluminum lithium alloys often used in aircraft structural components. “The cutter allows shorter machining time due to its high metal removal rate and delivers long tool life due to low build-up on the cutting edge,” said a company spokesperson.

The M2131 features protection against centrifugal force at the insert contact surface, which helps ensure process reliability even at maximum speeds, and its Vshaped cutting edge for ramping promotes rough milling and semi-finishing of pockets with high chip volume.

The M2131, with integral cooling for MQL or emulsion, has a finely balanced basic body, with different interfaces such as HSK, ScrewFit, cylindrical shank or shell mill mount. It has two sizes of indexable inserts with various corner radii, and employs the milling grade WNN15 designed for long tool life.
