B0125-III - 12 mm, 5-Axis Opposed Gang Tool CNC Lathe

Experience the Tsugami performance difference in this CNC lathe, including simultaneous machining capability and 21 tool positions. This economically priced, enhanced 5-axis convertible opposed gang tool lathe is a solid performer in the B0 series.  Use the B0125-III for traditional 12 mm Swiss turning or for making parts smaller than 3:1 L/D ratio in chucker mode (optional conversion kit needed).

Simultaneous Machining, 21 Tool, 5-Axis Swiss Turn

The B0 family of Tsugami CNC Automatic lathes are designed to provide exactly the capability and capacity you need at an affordable price. Each incremental model adds features to the core B0 CNC lathe, representing years of Tsugami testing and research.

The B0125-III is a 12 mm, 5-axis convertible Swiss turn that adds an independent back tool post to the B0 configuration and introduces two rotary tool positions on the back tool post (optional). These improvements enable front and back spindle simultaneous machining, a proven method for reducing cycle time.

Economically priced like other B0 CNC lathes, the B0125-III includes many high end features such as Tsugami’s gang type tool post, rigid cast iron frame and 12,000 rpm main and sub spindle speed. This Swiss CNC automatic lathe offers a total of 21 tool positions: 9 OD tool positions and 12 fixed tool positions (optional 2 rotary positions for rear) for flexible 5-axis machining.

The Tsugami B0125-III is CONVERTIBLE and may be run as a traditional sliding headstock Swiss Style Lathe using the guide bushing or run without the guide bushing with the addition of an optional chucker kit. When run as a chucker, the turning center can use drawn bar stock instead of centerless ground stock, dramatically reducing remnant size and increasing shop flexibility.
