Star CNC Machine Tool Corp.
32JII is designed to achieve higher
rigidity, increased productivity and
improved accuracy. The machine's
higher rapid feed rate and a power-driven sub-spindle tool reduces
processing time, while its moveable
operation panel allows the operator
to alter the positioning.
The SR-38 is another of Star
CNC's latest designs. The 10-acis
Swiss-type automatic lathe is ideal
for aircraft, automotive and medical
manufacturing. It features built-in
main- and sub-spindles and hightool post rigidity to ensure accuracy.
A proprietary motion control system
also reduces idle machine time. The
low-energy consumption machine is
designed for two-tool turning, heavy
material removal and rough and finished tooling.
"This addition to the Star CNC
product line sets a new standard for
machining of complex, large-diameter parts with high efficiency," the
company says of the SR-38 type B.
"With B-axis versatility, complex
parts can be produced in one operation with the prevision and accuracy
required by quality critical applications in a variety of industries."
Also new is the SV-20R, a multi-axis
machine with multi-series control for
high machine productivity, according to Star CNC. The SV-20R offers
flexible tooling layouts and a "super
position mode" that allows multiple
tools to work simultaneously. The SV20R is an upgrade of the SV-20 that
features cutting-edge software that
allows for the machining of complex
components such as bone screws, implants and surgical instruments.
All three machines, the SR-32JII,
the SR-38 and the SV-20R, were introduced at the International Man-
