Y-axis Machining Capability Y-axis allows side milling, off-center drilling and grooving. This result in better machining accuracy and also enable more complex shape machining capability compared to conventional 2 and 3 axis turning center. The simultaneous operation of the X-axis and the Ys-axis creates the Y-axis movement Box Way Horizontal Turning Centers • Spindle - Double row cylindrical roller bearings in the front and back, coupled with angular thrust bearings,ensure high rigidity for heavy cutting and excellent surface finishes. • 12-Station Turret - Large diameter 3 - piece Curvic coupling for excellent rigidity and extended tool life. High torque AC servo motor driven for fast indexing time and excellent positioning and repeatability(0.15 second index time). • Rigid 45 degree Slant Bed - The 45 degree slant torque tube design bed and wide guide slide ways. Easy access to the workpiece and superb chip discharge. • Programmable Tailstock Body & Quill - Wide-spaced guideways and heavy-duty tailstock body design ensure machining rigidity, and built in spindle quill design ensures higher rigidity.
