Marubeni Citizen-Cincom Inc., Allendale, NJ
The x-, y-, and z-axes on a multitasking center move independently, preventing problems associated with axis-on-axis stacking. The three axes on the TB-25-LYMB series are 90° to each other and do not require movement of two axes to enable y-axis motion. The design makes the unit a turning center and a four-axis machining center in one. The single-spindle machine has a 10-in. chuck with a swing of 21 in. and a turning length of 24 in. It has a bar capacity of 2.5 in. and a full travel tail stock.

Benchtop prototyping mill
A three-axis mill has 8.3 in. of x travel, 5 in. of y travel, and 6.25 in. of z travel. The unit comes with stepper motors, drivers, cables, and a computer with preloaded software. The stepper motors will resolve linear movement to 0.000125 in. and the machine can hold tolerances of less than 0.001 in. overall. Applications include developing working prototypes and machining molds for small plastic parts.

Gang tool lathe
A gang tool lathe with two spindles offers complete part machining of complex bar products in a single setup. The BX-26S has a 3-D linear turret and traverse-type identical left and right spindles, both with 5 hp. This ensures stable cutting from end to end. High-speed turning of 8000 rpm maximum is made possible by built-in spindle motors and high-rigidity linear guides. Ease of operation and setup is enabled by y- and c-axes on either spindle with eight revolving tools.
