Tsugami/Rem Sales to Demonstrate LaserSwiss Machine at MD&M West Show

January 22, 2016

[Windsor, CT- January 8, 2016]  Tsugami/Rem Sales, the exclusive North American importer of Precision Tsugami machine tools, announced today that it will demonstrate its S206 LaserSwiss machine at the MD&M West show in Anaheim, CA in February

This will be the first time the company has demonstrated the Tsugami S206-II with Tsugami Automation 400LS Laser Cutting System at this show. The “LaserSwiss” combines 6-axis Swiss machining with laser cutting on one machine, allowing manufacturers to perform Swiss turning and laser cutting operations with one setup. All operations are programmed and driven from the machine’s Fanuc 32i-B control. The nozzle standoff adjustment is NC controlled, and the laser’s frequency, pulse width, focus and power are all adjustable ‘on the fly.’

“This machine is ideal for medical manufacturing,” Tsugami/Rem Sales Vice President Mike Mugno said, “and it’s changing the way small, tubular parts are made. Our customers have replaced two machines with one, eliminated the need for multiple part setups, and significantly reduced part production time.”

Tsugami/Rem Sales will also demonstrate the B0205 5-axis CNC Swiss Turn at the show. The 20 mm 5-axis Swiss Turn is convertible, meaning it can be run as a traditional sliding headstock machine with a guide bushing or as chucker without the guide bushing.

“The chucker conversion option provides distinct advantages,” Mugno said. “It allows operators to machine parts from bar stock, rather than centerless ground stock, and results in shorter remnants. This flexibility reduces manufacturer’s part production costs.” The B0205 has an electronic servo-driven guide bushing and 21 tool positions.

To see live cutting demos of these machines at MD&M West, visit the Tsugami/Rem Sales booth, #667. The show runs February 9-11 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, CA.

Local manufacturers unable to attend the show are invited to schedule private machine tool demonstrations at the new Tsugami Technical Center in Fullerton, CA, or at Tsugami/Rem Sales’ distribution partner Ellison Technologies’ California facilities in Santa Fe Springs and Freemont.
