Advanced Turret Technology

YAMA SEIKI all series turrets are equipped with Japan made curvic couplings which is precision assembled under A/C controlled laboratory which ensures powerful cutting performance, outstanding quality and long life span.
The heavy-duty servo indexing turret achieves 0.3 second indexing times for adjacent stations and 0.8 second for stations at the opposite end of the disk. Index movements are single step, without pauses, no matter how many stations are skipped.

Indexing Time | 0.3 | 0.8
Adjacent ( sec. ) 180 degrees ( sec. )
The large diameter super high precision curvic couplings accurately position the turret disk and the powerful clamping force ensures abundant turret rigidity for all cutting conditions.
Curvic Coupling | 19%
Diameter Increased
The curvic coupling provides self-centering, self-cleaning and large contact surface advantages compared to conventional curvic couplings.

Live Tooling Turret

Live tooling and C-axis control capabilities on the GS-2000 or GS-3000 series allows the machine to perform multiple tasks on a work piece, such as turning, milling, drilling and tapping. It eliminates manpower and cycle time, while reducing accuracy lost, which will occur if the part is moved from machine to machine.
The live tooling turret is mated with a 4.5 kW ( 6 HP ) motor and driven by a transmission mechanism to provide tremendous amount of horsepower which can easily accomplish difficult tasks such as milling, drilling and tapping.
The 12-station live tooling turret offers 12 stations available for live tooling, live tools rotate in working position only to reduce power loss and heat.
