The NTRX-300 features true opposing twin spindles, either 8" (203 mm) and 25 hp (18.65 kW) or 10" (250 mm) and 30 hp (22.38 kW). The machine also features a 25 hp (18.65-kW) tool spindle with 12,000 rpm and full five-axis capabilities. The NTRX-300 can machine a 10" square on the face of a part with no C-axis rotation required due to X-axis capability of 5" (125 mm) below center travel and a Y-axis capability of 10". The NTRX-300 is compact, taking up only 104 ft2 (9.66 m2) and rigid, weighing in at 37,480 lb (17,000 kg). The compact NTRX-300 is available in two models: 8" chucks with 2.5" (63.5-mm) bar capacity or 10" chucks with 3.15" (80-mm) bar capacity. The NTRX-300 is designed with a long 53.15" (1350-mm) distance between spindles to eliminate any interference of tooling during multitasking. The machine has a standard 40 tool ATC and is available with options for 80- and 120-tool ATCs. “We’re pretty much on the cutting edge of multitask- ing technology with our new Nakamura-Tome (NT) Smart X Operation software,” said Kucharski. “Using Windows v. 8.1, it


offers an operation-level management function to view operator clearance level. Productivity monitor function shows the status, productivity graph and capacity utilization of the machine, and a loading monitor function that offers detailed load information.” NT setting screen commands and buttons are all integrated into one screen, ensuring easy operation. The NT Smart X Screen enables an operator to view the NC program, while watching 3D interface check, or look at CNC coordinates while watching the machining area through a video camera.

CNC Replaces Multifunction Cam Bar Machining The MS16 Plus multispindle lathes from Index Corp. (Noblesville, IN) feature six CNC spindles for turning, drilling, milling, tapping, deep-hole drilling, or slotting in each of its six spindle positions, machining bar up to 22-mm diameter. A high rate of production of precision-turned workpieces is achieved as workpieces are automatically indexed through the six positions, receiving two or more operations at each position. Design of the compact Index MS16 Plus is intended to provide the speed of a cam-controlled machine with the flex- ibility of CNC technology in no more floor space than a cam-controlled multispindle machine. In addition, the MS16 Plus offers exceptionally easy setup and more versatile machining options compared to cam-controlled machines. The MS16 Plus features a total of 27 NC axes, including five NC grooving or boring slides, five NC cross-slides, one NC cutoff and/or back-boring slide, six work spindles, one NC synchronous spindle, drum indexing plus an ad- ditional five free NC axes of possible CNC-controlled auxiliary equipment. They are all controlled by an Index C200-4D CNC control. Each of the six spindle positions can include a highly stable grooving or boring slide with one NC axis and a cross slide with two NC axes (X and Z axes) that are arranged around each work spindle in a V-shape, allowing use of several tools simultane- ously on each work spindle. The speed of each of the six spindles can be controlled separately. Spindle speeds can be varied during
