Driven tool capability
Driven tool capability
The TTL series, the new multi-turret CNC lathe series from CMZ, offers excellent driven tool capability enabling components to be machined that do not normally seem feasible for a driven tool lathe. This video is a good example of live tool work in a CNC lathe.
Integrated motors on both turrets offer a combination of two 12-station turrets (24 live positions) and 14kW/42Nm driven tool power with spindle speeds of up to 12,000 rpm, a massive advantage for achieving quicker cycle times.
Together with a generous Y-axis travel of +/-45mm available on both turrets, this makes the TTL a very capable choice for applications that call for serious milling and drilling power. To be capable of operating at those spindle speeds, CMZ has developed new axial and radial driven tool holders. The TTL is completely configurable and very competitively priced with a comprehensive list of options available.
If you're interested in learning how the TTL could revolutionise your productivity, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us for assistance with your project.
Polygon turning is a process through which flat planes are obtained on the piece through synchronized rotation of the spindle and the live tool. Polygon turning can be performed on our CMZ CNC lathes. It is an alternative process to milling each surface individually. It is more similar to lathing…
Gear Hobbing on a CNC lathe
The geometry of the gear in the gear hobbing process is obtained by the synchronised movement between the spindle and the live tool. The limit to manufacture gears in a CMZ CNC lathe is around the hob tool being able to produce the required profile but for occasional machining. Bigger gears require…
Thread rolling may be your solution. This process forms the thread by shaping the metal, without removing chips. This is done using rollers that are the "negative" of the thread being produced. The machining times are much shorter than for thread turning, since it is done in just one round. Furthermore, the…
Helical Gear Hobbing
We would like to welcome helical gear hobbing in a CNC lathe and say goodbye to the dead time that occurs when you have to turn and hob on two different machines. The range of possibilities is very broad since we can hob cylindrical gears with both straight and helical teeth. Technical characteristics…
