The newly improved Star SR-10J model has enhanced secondary machining capability and operability with C-axis control on both the main and sub spindles. This high performance machine was designed with advanced features for machining small parts with its high spindle speed (15,000 RPM) and rapid traverse with 3-spindle drilling unit for secondary machining. The dynamic and efficient design of this machine allows for close cutting position to the guide bush which achieves accuracy for small parts machining.
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.
