7-axis Swiss-type Offers 1 Micron Precision


Tornos Technologies U.S. Corporation is now offering the new “DECO 8sp” single-spindle Swiss-type multi-axis, multi-function machine in North America. This machine accommodates moderately complex parts up to 8mm. This “extreme” precision machine boasts accuracies of ±1m. This machine was initially developed for new markets in the electronics sector, particularly for mini disk parts for mobile IT units, however this machine is being applied for many other types of short parts requiring high precision in the watch, medical, automotive industries also. Key specifications of the new DECO 8sp include spindle rpm up to 15,000 powered by a 3.7 KW motor. Four tools serve the main spindle; up to six for the subspindle with up to seven “live” tools – five for the main; two for the subspindle. Programming can be accomplished with traditional ISO G-code or via Tornos’ dedicated TB-DECO ADV program, which takes full advantage of the DECO’s unique kinematics designed for speedy processing, which eliminates almost all non-productive time.
