Methods Machine Tools, Inc. has introduced the Nakamura-Tome AS-200LMY-S sub spindle machine, a High Performance Multitasking Turning Center designed for exceptional value and power.
The new AS-200LMY-S offers an upgraded long bed with sub spindle. The machine is equipped with a powerful milling drive, together with a high-speed, high accuracy C-Axis and 82 mm stroke Y-Axis that ensures accurate, finished parts and eliminates deburring, milling, drilling and re-positioning of fixtures.
Sub spindle speed is approximately 6,000 RPM and distance between spindle noses is 31.50 inches (800 mm). The machine offers a 7.5 hp milling motor on a 6,000 RPM, 12-station turret with ½ indexing, providing 24-tool capacity. Maximum turning diameter is 13.39 inches (340 mm) and maximum turning length is 22.44 inches (570mm).
The turning tool is 1.0 inch (25 mm) and the inside boring shank is 1.25 inches (32 mm). The Y-Axis enables turning, drilling and milling off center with full power on both the Nakamura AS-200 and the AS-200LMY-S multitasking center.
Providing very high rigidity, the AS-200LMY-S weighs in at a heavy 11,023 lbs (5,000 kg) and takes up approximately 59.4 square feet (5.5 sq. meters) of floor space.
The AS-200LMY-S features a 15" high-resolution color display LCD panel, which works in conjunction with the latest Fanuc 0iTD controller to give a high degree of functionality, coupled with fast processing speeds and 1 Mbyte of program storage length.
The AS-200 and the AS-200LMY-S come equipped with the NT Work Navigator that can recognize the coordinates of machine parts with non-round shapes such as those in forgings and castings, without any additional costs involved. This cost-cutting feature eliminates the need for costly positioning fixtures and clamping devices.
In addition, both AS-200 models feature an all-in-one software package, the NT Nurse II System. This software provides technicians with convenient, easily operated support for operation, programming and production on the machine. All Nakamura-Tome machines are equipped with an "airbag," a standard safety feature that greatly reduces the impact and force of a machine collision. Should a crash occur, within 8 milliseconds after the crash, servo motor-feeding direction is reversed and the machine will stop in EMG mode.
