(ETG) is the new SC-100X2 high-performance twin-spindle twin-turret turning centre from Nakamura-Tome which has been developed to replace its predecessor, the SC-100.
With high-speed efficient one-hit turning being the core philosophy of this new machine, the SC-100X2 is 41% faster than the previous SC-100 machine. This is a credit to the sub-spindle X-axis and the lower turret that deliver greater flexibility and performance. Furthermore, this new edition demonstrates fast and efficient programming with Nakamura’s intelligent software NT Thermo Navigator AI and Smart Support.
In addition, the standard X- and Z-axis on the right-hand spindle enhance simultaneous machining through overlapping control between the left and right-hand spindles. The X and Z slide travel on the right-hand spindle is 150 and 400mm respectively.
The 51mm bar capacity machine has a maximum turning capacity of 230mm diameter with a maximum turning length up to 400mm with the facility for a 6in chuck on both spindles. The Nakamura SC-100X2 demonstrates class-leading power and speed with an 11/7.5kW 6,000rev/min main spindle and a 7.5/5.5kW 6,000rev/min sub-spindle.
This power and speed are complemented by a milling spindle that generates 7.1/2.2kW for machining the most challenging of materials and components. This machining performance is assured from the 6,500kg weight of the new Nakamura-Tome SC-100X2 that ensures stability and rigidity for machining the most difficult of components.
