The sub-spindle replaces the standard tailstock on turning centers. A position CZi sensor is attached to the sub-spindle so the sub-spindle can then be synchronized with the main spindle. Special software allows the work piece to be transferred from the main spindle to the sub-spinale at any speed for secondary machining operations. This eliminates the need for operator intervention.

*Allows machining of both ends of parts.

Live Tool Turret.

The live tool turret replaces the standard turret on T-6 LSM turning centers. Each tool can then become a rotating tool for both milling and drilling operations. Tools can be either radially or axially oriented.

Headstock | Tailstock.

A. HEADSTOCK Heavy duty thermally symmetrical headstock design has heat dissipating fins to minimize thermal distortion during long machining cycles. All critical components are machined in a temperature controlled environment and assembled in a clean-room. Cartridge style spindle provides quick and easy replacement.


B. The 45 degree slant bed design allow chips to fall directly into the chip tank, avoiding accumulation inside the machine.


C. TAILSTOCK Heavy duty tailstock with large diameter quill and precisiion #5 Morse taper provides outstanding rigidity. The tailstock is drived by servo motor to increase the accuracy. Without the impulse when adjustment by hydraulic.

Cartridge Type Spindle.

The heavy-duty spindle utilizes high quality bearings to support heavy cutting.


All of which produces better part finish in less time.





  • Heavy duty A2-5 Spindle nose
  • Wide bearing spacing for high rigidity
  • Special heat treatment for critical parts
  • Highly accurate draw tube mechanism
  • Precision Labyrinth seal
  • Large diameter quill for high rigidity
  • Optimum spacing of front bearings to spindle nose for highest rigidity
Servo tall stock (OPT).

Rigid tailstock driven by aservo motor provides outstanding stability.

C-Axis option.

By synchronizing the optional C Axis with the live tooling, machining of cylindrical cams and other complex work pieces becomes easy, saving time and money for eachpart. The headstock spindle becomes a fully programmable servo axis with the C-Axis Option.


  • C Axis index resolution: 0.001 degrees
  • Max. C-axis speed: 40 rpm
  • Switching between normal turning & synchronization with live tooling takes less than 1 second.
