We are getting Makino Slim3N machines with HSK A50 spindle options. We are looking for tooling-up recommendations from the options below:
1) Schunk or equivalent Hydrogrip (Hydraulic) options
2) Rego Fix Powergrip tooling system
3) Haimer or MST Shrink Fit
Can anyone share their...
I also looked into Esco machines. I visited their assembly facility in Switzerland. Fantastic machines and great people. But, in my opinion, some parts are more suitable for Esco and then some are more suitable for the likes of Swiss Nano or R04 or L12 or GT/DT13.
There are certain limitations...
We looked into Swiss Nano machines, but again, since they are relatively new machines (Nano 10), and there are no Swiss Nano machines in India as per Tornos India guy, I am not sure how to benchmark them against anything in terms of quality and pricing.
We have had our fair share of poor experience with Tsugami here in India. One of the absolute worst services and the build quality of the machines is not at all up to the mark. I have forgotten the count of how many times I've had to call up their service team to repair issues on their simple...
Is anybody here with experience working with small parts out of Brass, Steel, and Copper alloys with Diameter < 3 mm as input conditions? I am looking at Swiss machining options and so far only two are there in the market. Tornos SwissNano series (4, 7, 10 models) vs Citizen R04...
We have decided to go with Makino Slim3N. We are based out of India and we got good reviews about Makino support. Hopefully the machine should run squeaky clean as promised. We have chosen 4+1 axis capabilities on the machine.
Also to add to above
1) Makino Slim3N comes with HSK A50 spindle, 8000 rpm high torque option
2) Hurco VMX30i comes with 12000 rpm BBT40 Belt Driven spindle, to which I have reservations about the quality and potential vibrations and issues that comes with belt driven spindles. The Hurco sales...
We have been trying to decide on our purchase on a CNC mill and based on the machine lead time, sales and service support, and other factors:
1) Haas VF2i with TRT210 table (Simultaneous 5 axis)
2) Speedio S700Xd1 with Yukiwa TNT170L table (Simultaneous 5 axis)
A jobshop guy we are working with pointed out the following based on his experience working with both VF2 machines and Speedio S500 / S700 modesl:
1) Both machines are almost identical for our application types in terms of repeatability and accuracy
2) For Non-Ferrous materials, the Speedio...
1) Yamazen represents Brother machines
2) Haas is from Phillips Machine Tools
3) Fanuc Robos is handled by Fanuc directly
4) Mazak is being handled by Mazak India
5) Doosan is new to the market here by DN Solutions (the new Doosan entity)
Yamazen and Haas have the most presence in the market in...
From India here. We are a small shop making built-to-print parts with a couple of CNC turning and Swiss machines. I am looking for investing in our first in-house milling machine (we usually outsource the milling jobs to single machine job-shops in our group - they use Haas / BFW...
We have a Citizen A20, and we have been running Brass components on it.
I recently got an inquiry for an SS304 part with base dimensions as follows:
Diameter - 4 mm
Length - 33 mm
External Thread - M4X0.7 6g (31 mm length)
Internal Hole - 2 mm entire length and orifice at the bottom...
I have set up a new Swiss CNC job shop in India, I am looking forward to installing either a vision system or an optical comparator.
1) I am confused between getting an optical comparator or a vision system. Pros & Cons comparison of both systems. Which one is more future-proof?
Has anyone used the new Vibration (Oscillation) cutting feature on their Tsugami machines? That tech from the videos below is comparable to the LFV feature offered in similar Citizen machines.
I am trying to get more info from Tsugami India, Japan, and USA (REM Sales), but so far none of them...
I don't have his contact number or mail id, otherwise I would have contacted him through that medium. But I was just taking my chance.
Anyways it would be great if you could provide some insights.
We are planning to buy our first Swiss screw machine and we are in the same dilemma. Which machine did you end up buying and how was experience?
We have to make a choice between Citizen A 20 and Tsugami S0206.
Any guidance from your side will be immensely helpful for us.
I am considering S206 in Tsugami against A20 in Citizen because we have got mixed reviews about B0206 with SS300 series material for long-run production (>10000 pcs continuous) around here.
I am trying to get more information on Tsugami's 'Oscillation Cutting' feature to eliminate bird nesting...
And one more query regarding LFV technology:
I wanted to know whether LFV technology in Citizen machines is
a) Software based feature
b) whether the machine tool manufacturers have made structural changes in the moving elements related to the concerned feature.
I ask this because not many...
My company is in the process of purchasing our first CNC Swiss Screw machine. Of the three options available here between the machines mentioned above, I am unable to decide the best option.
One of the differentiating factors between these companies is after sales & service, which are...
