CNC LathesSHIMADA 2SI-8United States
SHIMADA Two Spindle CNC Indexing Lathe The 2SI models uniquely connect two spindles, one turret and a Fanuc controller into a highly productive machine tool package. This 2-Spindle 1NC Lathe was developed from the architecture of "reducing idle time to the utmost limit." Zero Down time for loading / unloading The in and out handling of the workpieces takes place during the machining cycle. Short Idle Time Loading with one spindle while machining with the other. Chip to Chip time is "2 ~ 2.5 seconds". Spindle index time is "0.9 seconds" First and second operations on one machine By flipping the part, every other index produces a finished part. Convenient Manual or Trouble-free Automatic Loading The loading station is outside the machine, separated from the machining area by a sliding door. Our design affords the operator a safe and economic work environment (leads to easy manual loading / unloading and chuck exchange), or can be a customized to workpiece-machining automation. Milling Function.(M model ----- 2SI-6M / 2SI-8M / 2SI-10M) Available with optional C axis with live tooling The 2SI is optimal for the following types of work: Tasks that need a short cycle time and a long loading time Tasks with a big difference between the 1st and 2nd process cycle times Tasks that requires a large amount of time for chucking under manual loading situations The 2SI resolves two types of waste. Time of waste for Loading / Unloading For example, even if the actual turning time is 12 seconds, if the non-turning time for such things as loading/unloading is 9 seconds, the cycle time will be 21 seconds. In this example, 9 seconds amounts to 42% of the cycle time, with the spindle not doing anything. The SHIMADA 2SI-6/8 reduces the non-turning time to two seconds by conducting loading/unloading on one spindle while the other one is machining.

The 2 SI-6/8 2-Spindle 1NC Lathe was developed from the architecture of “reducing idle time to the utmost limit." • Collet chuck, 6", 8", 10", 12" chucks • Loading with one spindle while processing with the other. Chip to Chip time “2 seconds.” Spindle index time “0.9 seconds.” • This design, with the chucking position outside the machine, leads to easy manual loading/unloading and chuck exchange • Simultaneous processing of the front and back side of workpieces with one machine This lathe is optimal for the following types of work: • Tasks that need a short cycle time and a long loading time • Tasks with a short cycle time (work with a large loading time to cycle time ratio) • Tasks with a big difference between the 1st and 2nd process cycle times • Tasks that requires a large amount of time for chucking under manual loading condition
