Mori Seiki's NZS1500 turret shaft lathe will debut in North America at the Westec 2006 show in March.
Mori Seiki (www.moriseiki.com) will introduce its NZ-S1500 two-turret shaft lathe at the Westec 2006 trade show at the Los Angeles Convention Center in late March. The company says the new machine is designed specifically for high volume machining of shafts and has a footprint that is less than half the size of previous models. It was designed primarily for the automotive market.
The NZ-S1500 accommodates workpieces with a maximum machining diameter of 4.8 in. and standard machining diameters of 2.36 in. to 0.7874 in., and a highspeed loader with a rotary hand function can be used to increase the efficiency of the machine. The machine is less than 5 ft. in height. Mori Seiki says the NZ-S1500 uses a symmetrical design in which its two turrets are aligned with its spindle that is mounted on the vertical bed. The company says the
layout helps to reduce the influence of heat while improving accuracy during continuous machining.
Mori Seiki also will display its NT4250 DCG/1500SZ integrated mill turning center, its NH4000 DCG horizontal machining center and its NL2000Y high-precision lathe, among other products at the Westec show, March 27 through 30.
