ZPS has designed the Swiss CNC by combining traditional mechanical knowledge with the most up-to-date developments. The ZPS Swiss series covers the range from 3 to 32 mm bar diameter. The European-built machine is designed for continuous or series production of precision turned parts.
The Swiss style turning centers are equipped with Fanuc control systems and drives that are capable of handling up to 12 controlled axes.
Swiss Plus operates with Windows and offers user-friendly programming specially adapted for simultaneous operations. Each machining operation is individually programmed in ISO code with graphic interface and tool library.
It's possible to machine a part with up to 4 tools cutting simultaneously. The sliding headstock provides up to 250 mm stroke that enables part machining in succession at one collet clamping as well as the machining of long parts with small diameter.
There are 23 tool stations and 14 stations can be driven. The use of two identical spindles increases machining capacity in rear slide operations and enables evacuation of long parts (more than 250 mm) through the subspindle.
Three live spindles may be fitted on the rear tool rack for cross-drilling and tapping as well as milling with the Y-axis. Multiple live spindles also enable high-speed drilling, polygom turning or thread and slot milling. Two axial and three transversal live spindles may be fitted on the rear-machining unit in order to work via the subspindle.
