The Goodway Division of Yama Seiki has redesigned its GS-6000 series to incorporate a wide range of enhancements. With leading technologies and high quality components, the GS-6000 series maximum performance turning center combines a high rigidity box way bed with super large diameter servo indexing turret and two-step gear spindle structure provide great horse power, high speed indexing, and heavy duty cutting capabilities, the company notes. The long model is available with up to 3,300 mm the length and the m model is available with live tooling turret and c-axis that enables the GS-6000 series with higher cutting flexibility and multi-tasking power to meet today and tomorrow’s most of turning applications demanding.
Features include a massive turret, which boasts a turret disk over 750 mm in diameter. Blazing fast indexing times of 0.5 seconds from station to station and 1.5 second for stations at 180 degrees are achieved with servo indexing technology, the company notes.
Additionally, the centers have a 45-degree true slant bed with super wide box ways, and an enormous 2-speed head stock driven by a 50 HP FANUC motor. Axes rapids are 787 IPM on X axis and 944 IPM on Z axis, which are 50 to 100 percent faster than the competitors, the company states. Combined industrial design, the perfect fully enclosed protection covers can isolates cutting chip and coolant inside the machine.
Available live tooling and C-axis capabilities in the GS-6000 series allow the machine to perform multiple tasks on a work piece, such as turning, milling, drilling and tapping. It cuts down manpower and cycle time, while reducing accuracy lost, which will occur if the part is moved from machine to machine.
