In addition to the newly added Haas DS-30Y, we brought in another turning center beast for 2023 – the Miyano BNE-51MSY. A brand known for high rigidity for top precision and heavy duty cutting capabilities, this new Citizens Miyano fixed headstock swiss lathe machine boasts 9 axes for cutting with 12+12 tooling capabilities between its two identical spindles. An added axis on the secondary spindle, a second turret and superimposed cutting capabilities enable synchronized drilling on front and back facing parts and 3-tool simultaneous cutting to chop cycle times and allow for the production of two complete precision parts in one operation.
We are very excited about the added production capabilities this brings to our shop and to our customers. See the breakdown of features below.
What features does this new machine offer and what does it mean for your precision machined parts?
- 9 Cutting Axes (X1, Z1, Y1, X2, Z2, X3, Z3, C1, C2) – The combination of 4-Axis Lathe and 5-Axis Milling capabilities allows for turning in every possibly direction, resulting in complex parts machined quickly and cleanly with one setup.
- 2 Spindles with identical 6” chuck, 5,000 rpm and A2-6 noses allow for handling stock with the same capabilities in the front and back operations.
- EDGE PATROIT 551 Bar Feeder for consistent feeding of round, square or hexagonal bar stock.
- 2 Turrets with 24 (25-Nm) Revolving Tool Stations – A pair of identical turrets each equipped with 12 live tooling stations means detailed simultaneous milling on front and back face operations, in addition to the lathe function.
- Y-Axis Slide
- 2” Bar Capacity
- Fixed Headstock
