Swistek SW528-Y2 Swiss Type CNC equipped with Fanuc Series 32i-B Controller
38mm Capacity with Guide Bushing, 2.00″ Capacity without Guide Bushing. The Swistek SW528-Y2 offers an 8-Axis sliding headstock Swiss Type Screw Machine with a Removable Guide Bushing that brings precision, reliability, performance, and speed at a very economical price compared to the competition. The Swistek SW528-Y2 model has a removable Guide Bushing, Fanuc 32-B Controller with ALPHA series Drives, integrated 15hp main spindle and an integrated 15hp independent simultaneous sub-spindle along with Super Precision Bearings and Ball Screws. The Swistek SW528-Y2 has up to 24 Live Tool Positions and has a 38mm bar capacity with the Guide Bushing and 2.00″ bar capacity without the guide bushing. Running as a Non-Guide-Bush-Type adds cost savings with shorter bar remnants, eliminates the guide bushing and the need for centerless ground bar stock, it also allows for better workpiece concentricity in shorter parts (Part Length Ratio for Removing Guide Bushing: Max. Part Length = 3 x Dia.). The Swistek SW528-Y2 is truly the most Economical and Versatile Swiss Turn in the Big Bore Class!
Additional Design Benefits:
The Swistek SW528-Y2 Swiss Type CNC Lathe features not only a high rigidity structure but also operational versatility, translating into shorter turnaround times thus bringing added profitability to your shop. And rest assured, no matter how long it may take to obtain these future jobs, Swistek’s rugged construction and use of superior individual components assures your SW Series machine will be ready to meet these future challenges with ease. You will be amazed at the versatile machining performance of the Swistek SW528-Y2 Swiss Type CNC Lathe. Although compact in construction, it offers multi-functions for maximum flexibility of operation. It is the first choice for various manufacturers of medical, aerospace, electronic, instrument, pneumatic, and hydraulic parts. The Swistek SW528-Y2 Swiss Type CNC Lathe is equipped with a precision sub-spindle, allowing for turning, milling, drilling, and tapping. To enhance productivity, the main spindle and sub-spindle can perform synchronized or simultaneous machining and also provides for secondary machining for improved efficiency. Upon request, side drilling can be converted to end drilling. Again, a wide range of optional accessories are available to enhance the operational functions of the Swistek SW528 Swiss Type CNC Lathe.
Other Outstanding Design Benefits:
The SW Series design team gave a high priority to the customer’s demand for reducing expensive floor space and providing greater overall efficiency at the end user’s facility. Easy access to tooling areas and exceptionally good operational visibility is appreciated by the operator. The use of heavily ribbed, close grain Meehanite process casting results in a rigged one piece base. Once the machine order is placed in production, careful monitoring of every manufacturing process is supervised by the quality control department to meet the Swistek’s demand to manufacture its equipment of the highest quality and accuracy. Every component of the machine is selected by manufacturing engineering to provide for long life with minimal maintenance expense.
Swistek SW528-Y2 Swiss Type CNC Lathe incorporates all of these advantages and combines them with its sub-spindle for even more flexibility in turning, milling, drilling, and tapping operations. The sub-spindle design reduces additional process time by machining a part complete in one handling, eliminating secondary machining while upgrading efficiency, reducing WIP, and minimizing the risk of damaging a part from mishandling between secondary operations by offering the opportunity for incorporating back side machining.
