The M16: A High-end Model Covering 16mm
The M16: A high-end model covering ø16 mm. The B axis function of rotary tools on the gang tool post and the back tool post Y axis function give the advantage of creating complex shapes as well a secondary machining.
The M16 type VIII features a B axis for rotary tools on the gang tool post. It can machine angled holes and complex shapes. The swivel angle of the B axis is 135° and it can be used in both front and back machining. The back tool post is equipped with a Y axis (VIII) and up to 9 tools can be carried in 3 rows. But we have not just upped the number of controlled axes and the number of mountable tools. In addition to upping the rapid feed rate to 32 m/min and running high-speed calculations with the latest NC unit, the maximum rotational speeds of the front/back spindles and the rotary tools on the turret tool post have also been increased.
By machining with the optimum conditions for small-diameter workpieces and small-diameter drills/end mills, high productivity can be achieved. The M16 brings advanced functions and raises the level of the basic functions. It permits greater versatility in workpiece shapes and has the edge when machining increasingly complex parts for the IT and medical fields.
