Advanced Turret Technology
17.7" ( 450 mm ) diameter super high precision CURVIC couplings accurately position the turret disk ( ± 2 sec. of arc ) and 26,400 lb ( 12,000 kg ) of clamping force ensures abundant turret rigidity for all cutting conditions.
The 12-station heavy duty servo indexing turret achieves 0.5 second indexing times for adjacent stations and 1.5 second times for stations at the opposite end of the disk turret. Index movements are continues, without pauses, and is capable of turning 15" diameter work pieces without interference when using boring tools.
Live tooling and C-axis control capabilities on the GS-6000 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.
