The SR-32J Type N, Non-Guide-Bush Type, is especially designed for complex large diameter short workpiece machining. The reduction of remnant material length can dramatically change the production costs of large-diameter workpieces because such costs are easily affected by material costs. The SR-32J offers high rigidity and output to meet the machining requirements of large-size workpieces, as well as a variety of functions to aid in complex machining – including additional chilling tools, power-driven tools and the backworking tool post.
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.
