Yamazaki Mazak Corporation has announced the start of sales of the DUAL TURN 200, twin spindle/twin turret CNC turning center, designed for small to medium sized parts machining, with the newest MAZATROL SmoothC CNC.
The twin spindle, twin turret symmetrical design of the DUAL TURN provides the productivity of two conventional turning centers by a single machine. It makes it possible to perform continuous machining by both spindles thanks to the automatic workpiece transfer from one spindle to the other. Each spindle/turret can be separately controlled, allowing different workpieces to be machined at the same time. It realizes unsurpassed process integration in a small floor space. In addition, a wide variety of optional equipment such as bar feeders or gantry robots are available for automatic/unmanned operation.
Advanced features of the MAZATROL SmoothC CNC include high speed control, ease of operation, and the ability to use both EIA/ISO format and conversational MAZATROL programs. High accuracy machining is ensured by the Thermal Shield which automatically compensates for changes in the room temperature.
The DUAL TURN 200 is designed to effectively meet today’s requirements of manufacturers of automotive components for mass production of small to medium sized workpieces.
