Methods Machine Tools’ high-performance Nakamura-Tome TW-8 multi-tasking turning/milling centers reduce cycle time between 30 and 50%, according to the company. An opposed, two-spindle, two-turret construction allows the centers to perform like two single-spindle machines within a compact footprint. The entry-level TW-8 turn/mill systems feature a Fanuc 31iA control for easy operation and offer standard conversational programming. Configurations include the four-axis platform and an optional six-axis package that facilitates simple cross-drilled holes and milling operations on the C-axis. The systems are suitable for medium production of small components that require fast cycle times, including small shaft parts with simple secondary features (i.e., cross holes, flats, and hex).
