Compact, Simple CNC Lathe Speeds Small-Part Production

The new Tongtai Q5 CNC gang-type lathe, introduced by Absolute Machine Tools, is a compact, simple machine engineered specifically for fast production of small parts.

The Q5 features a 6,000 rpm (optional 8,000 rpm), 7.5 hp (5.6 kW) spindle motor and offers a rapid traverse rate of 1,181 IPM. The compact machine has a 5' x 6' 3" (1,490 mm x 1870 mm) footprint, and with straightforward gang tooling and no subspindle, it is equipped for speed. Tool capacity, depending on the workpiece being processed, is 4-6 ID or OD tools.

Optional automation systems further increase the machine's productivity. A simple, easy-to-operate solution combines a bar feeder, part catcher, and part conveyor. Through-spindle bar capacity is 1" (25 mm) -dia. For longer-term, higher-volume automated production, 8-pallet or 2-pallet gantry-loader-type part stockers are offered to handle parts up to 2" (50 mm) in diameter and 1.5" (38 mm) in length.
