CMZ introduces three new turning machines at MACH (stand 5230)

2 mins read

On a 220 sq. m stand, CMZ is showing some of the most productive and technologically-advanced machine tools. CMZ is keen to emphasise the build quality, power and rigidity levels its range can provide.

Having no fewer than six machines on its stand, CMZ is promoting productivity and automation levels that can be achieved from its turning centres. The machines at MACH encompass the existing TA, TC and TX lines.

From the TA stable, CMZ will be showing its TA 20 YS-640, TA 30 Y-1100 and the TA 25 YS-640 + GL20 II. The smaller TA 20 YS-640 is a flexible and productive machine with a 65 mm diameter bar capacity, driven tools, a Y-axis and sub spindle for back-working operations. Highlighting the automation potential of the TA Series, CMZ will have the TA 25 YS-640 + GL20 II alongside the TA20. The TA25 turning centre at MACH will demonstrate how a turning centre with driven tools, Y-axis and sub-spindle can work autonomously with CMZ's own gantry loading system. The loading system is powered by Fanuc servo motors on all axes. The final machine from the TA line on show is the TA 30 Y-1100. This turning centre is the long-bed derivative of the TA range for processing parts up to and beyond 1 m in length. With driven tooling capability, a Y-axis and a 77mm spindle bore, the TA 30 is ideal for producing relatively large and complex parts in one hit. The TA Series features a 12 kW/12,000 rpm spindle motor generating 75 Nm of torque.

From the TC stable, CMZ is introducing the TC 35 Y-1350 and the TC 30 Y-800. The former is a workhorse of a CNC machine, having driven tools and Y-axis capability as well as a self-centring steady mounted on a servo slide for production of long, thin parts. At MACH, it is presented alongside the TC 30 Y-800, a Y-axis machine fitted with a 12 kW/12,000 rpm spindle generating up to 105 Nm torque. Available in bed lengths of 800 mm and 1,350 mm, this range has 12 or 16 tool station turrets with the opportunity for all tool stations to be driven.

From the TX range of multi-turret, multi-spindle CNC turning centres, CMZ will introduce the TX 66 Y2 Quattro, a two-turret, twin spindle CNC turning centre for one-hit machining of anything from simple to complex components. The TX Series is available with either two or three turrets; all have Y-axes and driven tools. Capable of accommodating bar diameters of 52 mm or 66 mm, the TX Series also permits the integration of robot loading.

CMZ lathes can machine bar from 52 mm to 77 mm diameter, and offer bed lengths of 400 mm, 640 mm and 1,100 mm. Automation solutions range from barfeeder to robot arm and even a robotic gantry loading facility; or even all three.
