Driven tools and double tool holders can be mounted to any of the 36 turret tool positions providing outstanding tooling flexibility for even the most complex jobs
The ultimate machine from the bar work specialist ... Miyano
Sixth generation of the highly successful BNE series which has long been the backbone of short cycle parts machining from bar work up to 51mm
Twin spindle, twin turret turning centers with Y-axis on the upper turret. When combined with the use of double tool holders on the 12-station turret you will never feel short of tools
Slant bed design combined with precision scraped square slideways ensures outstanding rigidity and extends tool life
Revamped NC control based on Fanuc 31i and Miyano's custom menus screens
Up to 51mm bar capacity BNJ series delivers the benefits of overlapping machining on both spindles.
The uniquely shaped 2nd turret is fixed to the machine bed structure and when indexed to the clear side allows the sub-spindle to pass to pickup the part
Superimposed machining whereby the movement of spindle No.2 can be overlapped with turret No.1 achieves reduced cycle times
A wide range of options are available to support bar feed operation and unattended running
For bar work up to 42mm , two spindles one turret and five different configurations. Sophisticated functions and high accuracy in compact body
Half indexing and tool holders with multiple rotating tools at one position means you'll never feel short of tools
Superimposed control enables spindle No.2 to overlap the machining on Spindle No.1 to further reducing cycle times
