Working with tailstock
Working with tailstock
Working with a tailstock allows customers to machine longer parts without vibrations. The TTL and TTS series machines have the unique capability of having a tailstock and a sub-spindle.
With this configuration, customers can machine parts in the main-spindle with the tailstock engaged using the upper turret, while simultaneously machining parts in the sub-spindle with the lower turret. Working with a tailstock on a TTL or TTS is a very productive option because of the ability to work with both spindles and a tailstock at the same time. When only one spindle is required or when big diameter parts are to be machined, our TA or TD ranges with tailstocks would be a more suitable option.
In order to use the tailstock in a TTL or a TTS, there are three different options. First two options would be the two standard options included in all machine configurations of this type of machines. This would include a tailstock above the subspindle with two options in terms of length, a longer and a shorter one. The third option, which is the less optimize one because one turret is not machining, would be to include a spring tailstock as a tool in one of the turrets and to keep it in the correct position so that it makes the tailstock function, while machining with the other turret. So, to sum up, working with tailstock in a TTL is a very optimize option because of the possibility to have both spindles and the tailstock at the same time.
TTL Series | Applications Demo
CMZ presents their new CNC lathe series TTL. This a new generation of lathe that can be included in the multiturret range together with the TX series. Its rapid speed of 30m/min, milling capacity up to 12,000rpm and machine bed inclination of 60° makes it ideal for bar work. The lathe consists of…
Lathe operations | TTS Series
The TTS and TTL Series make up the multi-turret family of machines for bar work. This is the smallest lathe in the whole product range. Its precision and reliability guarantee the quality of this machine, used in industries such as the oil and gas, medical and general machining industries, with particular…
4x Simultaneous Cutting
When the geometry of the part allows it, it is even possible to cut with four tools at the same time performing a double balance cutting process. One of the turrets and the subspindle (TOOL 1+TOOL 2) will be programmed with superimpose function and the other turret will be programmed as a single trajectory…
Parting Off with Y Axis
Material is a considerable percentage in component cost. In order to avoid large material waste on the cut off, the blades are usually very thin and long, which often lead to vibrations and bad surface finish. The only solution is to reduce the tool overhang to minimise the effect; however, the…
