Use of a linear turret substantially reduces idle time
To answer the requirements imposed by severe operation time restrictions, the machine is equipped with a linear turret that doesn't need to be indexed. The machine has also been given a simpler construction, which improves its rigidity and so allows more accurate machining.
Newly developed high-speed air-driven precision chucking system
To answer requirements for faster cutting, a highly rigid spindle construction with a φ65mm bearing internal bore and maximum speed of 8,000min-1 (Option) is adopted. In the standard specification, a pull-type collet chuck made by TAKAMAZ is fitted. However, chucks such as the T850 type outward-opening chuck that has been used previously can also be used, or alternatively a 5-inch power chuck could be fitted. ※Power chucks can be used with XD-8PLUS/XD-8TPLUS only
Integral tool holders for simple setup (XD-8 PLUS: linear turret)
Integral tool holders has been adopted to improve rigidity, speed up setup changes, and save space. Due to the integral construction, chips are no longer trapped against the holder, and accidents that result from the trapping of chips are also prevented
