The first twelve-axis (12) Swiss Style Machine of its kind with a completely independent three (3) turret-design allowing three (3) tools to be used at any time, working simultaneously in the cut. Fully independent front / back machining capability with a huge variety of tools makes complicated parts a simple task enabling them to be completed in a single operation. The Star Motion Control System provides fast rapids and a quick tool change with great accuracies, the ECAS-20T is suitable for traditionally difficult and complex parts to manufacture.
Star Micronics' machine tools are mainly the so-called. Swiss Type Automatic Lathe (known as Sliding Head-type Automatic Lathe), which is the type suitable for small size precision component processing with high accuracy. This type of machine tools have been originally devised to mass-produce wristwatch components; however, the applications have been extended to the processing of not only automotive components but also digital equipment and medical components in recent years.
