SS207-II-5AX - 20 mm B-Axis Sliding Headstock Swiss Type Lathe

The hallmark of the Tsugami SS207-II-5AX Swiss Type Lathe, in addition to Swiss turning speed and accuracy, is its ability to cut contoured shapes using a swiveling B-axis. This capability greatly enhances the CNC lathe’s ability to produce high precision parts with sculpted geometries.


Ultimate Swiss Turn for Complex Small Parts

The Tsugami SS207-II-5AX Swiss Type Lathe with B-Axis is a high-performance turning center that performs continuous live cutting using a Servo-driven B-axis. The live tools mounted on the B-axis (three front, three rear) machine in coordination with the C-axis, delivering the ability to cut precise angles and sculpted contours. The swiveling B-axis transforms this Swiss type lathe into a multitasking turning center that can drill, tap and end mill any angle.

The modular tool zone makes it easy to change cartridge-type live cross and face tools in either the main or sub spindle, decreasing changeover time. Multiple angle cuts by the same tool also decrease the total number of tools required. For machining complex shapes, this is the ultimate Swiss type lathe.

The Tsugami SS207-II-5AX CNC Lathe is CONVERTIBLE and may be run as a traditional sliding headstock Swiss Type 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 CNC Lathe can use drawn bar stock instead of centerless ground stock, dramatically reducing remnant size and increasing shop flexibility.
