Lightning Fast Turning Centers

Turret indexing times are lightning fast on the Puma GT2600 from Doosan due to a servo driven non-lifting design, with a high torque motor. The new design is not only faster, it’s more reliable, with 53 percent fewer moving parts. 
The Puma GT2600, GT2600M, GT2600L and GT2600LM turning centers from Doosan apply box guideways to all axes to increase dampening and rigidity that is ideal for taking deep, powerful cuts. 

High Speed Vertical Turning Lathe for Heavy-Duty Cutting

The TUE-100 Vertical Turning Lathe utilizes a field-tested design that capitalizes on the identical ram cross section to support the railhead for increased precision. Cutting performance is improved through the two types of bearings used to support both the radial and axial loads of the table, along with the high quality cast iron bed, specifically designed for efficient chip removal.
The TUE-100 vertical turning lathe from Toshiba showcases the highest rapid rate available in its class with feed rates up to 2,000 mm/min that reduce cycle times and increase productivity.

Automated Multitasking Turning Center Cell

The AS-200 Lathe JobShop Cell loads through the door, not through the spindle, allowing automatic loading of stock larger than the bar capacity of the lathe. The Nakamura-Tome AS-200 High Performance Multitasking Turning Center offers a single spindle, single turret in a heavy duty and compact machine for exceptional value.  The standard AS-200  is well equipped with a powerful milling drive, together with a high-speed C-Axis and 82 mm stroke Y-Axis for accurate, finished parts.  
The Lathe JobShop Cell from Methods Machine Tools features the new Nakamura-Tome AS-200 High Performance Multitasking Turning Center that is ideal for job shops wanting to incorporate automation in their turning operations.
