Tsugami/Rem Sales, the exclusive North American importer of Precision Tsugami machine tools, announced today the details of its Precision Machining Technology Show (PMTS) 2015 display, which includes three machines that have never been displayed at this show.

Tsugami/Rem Sales will showcase its new LaserSwiss Tsugami S205-II with IMG 400LS Laser Cutting System, which combines 6-axis Swiss machining with laser cutting on one machine. The new Tsugami "LaserSwiss," developed by Rem Sales' sister company, Innovative Machinery Group (IMG), allows manufacturers to perform turning and laser cutting operations with one setup. All operations are programmed and driven from the machine's Fanuc 32i-B NC control.

"This isn't just a Swiss machine with an attached laser," IMG Laser Product Manager Dale White said. "This is a fully integrated system that operates on a single software platform. The nozzle standoff adjustment is NC controlled, and the laser's frequency, pulse width, focus and power are all adjustable ‘on the fly' and programmed through the control."

The Tsugami SS20M-5AX and SS327-5AX will also make their PMTS debuts at this year's show.

The SS20M-5AX Multifunction Machine combines the versatility of a CNC automatic lathe with the functionality of a vertical machining center. It features 5-axis simultaneous control, a B-axis tool spindle, and a 24-tool automatic tool changer. The SS20M-5AX can produce complex parts up to 20mm in diameter in a single setup.

The SS327-5AX is a high performance 7-axis Swiss Turn that performs continuous live cutting using a Servo-driven, swiveling B-axis. The B-axis live tools (four front and four rear) operate in coordination with the C axis, delivering the ability to cut precise angles and sculpted contours on parts up to 32mm in diameter.

Visitors can also see the B0206-II 20mm 6-Axis Swiss Turn. The B0206-II is convertible, meaning it can be run as a traditional sliding headstock machine with a guide bushing or as a chucker without the guide bushing.

To see live cutting demos of these machines at PMTS, visit the Tsugami/Rem Sales booth in the East Hall, booth 101. The show runs April 21-23 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, OH.

ST Robotics - R17HS-6, the 6-axis version of the high speed R17 variant

The 6-axis version of the R17HS high speed variant of the R17 robot is now available. As is our policy the 6th axis is an optional bolt-on module. At the same time we have made it even faster and new software eliminates shake and greatly improves repeatability as this video shows. Please see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wG0MeiJ-yE. The video would seem to imply a repeatability of 0.01mm but we are sticking with 0.2mm in the spec. The motor specialist was able to tune the motors from the other side of the pond. My first reaction when we put power on and entered the first commands was to jump back in amazement (and maybe an expletive). Tip speed is now 3m/s; that's 3 times as fast as its nearest competitor yet costs half the price. I love it when a plan comes together.
