Fuji Machine America Corporation (www.fujimachine.com) says its new FS4-3500 compact automated gang tooled turning center is the fastest in its class. The machine allows loading and unloading of the workpiece during spindle rotation with a loading/unloading time of less than 5 seconds. Two separate loaders are included.
The FS4-3500 incorporates a 30 degree bed design. The ways that support the gang slide are a hardened and ground combination square and dovetail system. The saddle and cross slides are coated with Turcite type material to reduce stick slip. Fuji says this design along with Fuji's midcase spindle assures super high accuracy, superior roundness and finish in high volume production environments. Fuji's automatic gaging can be integrated into high accuracy applications where 100 percent inspection is required.
The FS4-Series can be applied to most applications that require both OD and ID turning. The machine can be connected with a part flip station for complete OP-10 / OP-20 turning.
?Maximum part diameter is 6.0 in. An optional 4-station indexable turret is available. Fuji says these highly accurate machines employ built-in robotic automation, in-process auto gaging for quality control, and are engineered with the finest Fuji custom workholding, all from one source.
