Low Volume Components on Market-Leading Delivery Times

Thursday 30th May 2019

Takamaz™ XY120 Plus CNC lathe

Optimas Solutions is offering its customers a new method to receive small volume parts with greater expediency than normally possible. This service has been enabled by the installation of a Takamaz™ XY120 Plus CNC lathe, which can quickly turn a range of parts in quantities up to 5000 pieces. This rapid component delivery service will be offered by Optimas’ UK manufacturing arm, Barton, as part of a new worldwide express service, which provides small volume components on greatly reduced lead times to alleviate existing supply pressure on manufacturers.

The service is aimed primarily at the automotive, petrochemical and other pressurized industrial sectors, where securing low volume parts on short lead times is of importance in meeting launch dates, project and development deadlines.



Large Capacity for Number of Tools

Main turret (12 stations) has a middle indexing capability, making it possible to mount tools on the 24-positions. Moreover, with the sub turret, the maximum number of tools becomes 36. This is an extensive number of tooling capable of cutting different types of different amount of workpieces at shorter idle time.

Innovative Short Cycle Time

With the sub spindle for overlap cutting and main and sub spindle simultaneous cutting, the cycle time is significantly reduced.

Achieving Loader Installation

By designing the Y-Axis at 30 degree, the TAKAMAZ compact type loader can be mounted. This is a new automation system innovation.

Servo controlled Auto Bar Feeder

High accuracy servo controlled feed length means no need for a length stop allowing for quicker cycle times and concurrent working. This means new bar can be fed into the machine as the machine is still turning the previous component. Bar feed stocker allows for 20 bars at 1.m length to be loaded to the machine and fed without any manual intervention.
