Heavy Duty, Efficient Machining of Complex-Shaped Workpieces

Tsugami's B038T combines the precision, accuracy and speed of a high performance Swissturn with the flexibility and additional rotary tool capability of a turret machine. In this unique combination, up to 13 tools on the tool posts (gang, front and rear), plus 32 stations on the turret combine to make complex-shaped workpieces in one set-up.

The B038T is an extremely rugged, powerful (main and sub spindles) machine which can perform 7 different types of simultaneous machining operations involving the front, back and cross spindles. Fanuc 31i-B CNC is standard, typical of top-of-the-line Tsugami machines. If you need a heavyweight performer to make short work of heavy milling, turning, drilling, tapping, hobbing and long thread whirling, the B038T is the right choice.

Key Advantages Include

  • Tsugami Double Spindle Structure enables heaving machining capability, produces blue chips
  • Z-Axis Capability Added to Rear Turret, makes balanced turning, long thread whirling and other options possible
  • Gang Tool Post + Turret + Dedicated Back Tool Post = Expanded Tool options
  • Multiple Simultaneous Machining Options on front, back and cross spindles make complex parts in one set-up and slash cycle times
  • Independent Turret Drive improves accuracy and power, reduces thermal distortion
  • Excellent Rigidity and Thermal Characteristics due to Tsugami fine ground cast iron base
  • Increased Power to Main and Sub Spindle Motors: 7.5 hp/ 11 kW (main), 3.7 hp / 5.5 kW
  • Water Soluble Coolant may be used
  • Fanuc 31i-B 3-Path CNC drastically shortens cycle time
