The CMZ TA Series in a Nutshell

The CMZ TA Series has a range of models (Z400, Z640 and Z1100) to suit all your needs. Each model has a different bed length to accommodate various sizes of workpieces. Specifically, the z-axis ranges from 400mm to 1100mm, depending on the model.

With a powerful 12,000 rpm spindle, a CMZ lathe can handle heavy-duty applications easily thanks to its turrets with in-built motors. The non-lift turret disk also has the ability to clamp and unclamp when moving to and from the workpiece. This allows for effective tool change times of up to 0.2 seconds.

The oil-cooling process provides increased longevity to your CMZ CNC lathe. With greater thermal stability and increased accuracy, the integrated oil-cooled spindles ensure the lathe produces products with high precision, elevating the efficiency of your work process and reducing any wear and tear on the tools.

The CMZ TA Series also utilised slant beds. This aids with chip disposal and enhances the rigidity and stability of the bed during machining operations.

Transform Your Processes with Automation

One of the key features of the CMZ TA Series is the ability to integrate automation software. Specifically, the GL 20II Gantry Robot loader/unloader (also manufactured by CMZ) can automate short and long batches of work. Its easy-to-use programming system allows you to automate processes easily, meaning employees will not have to watch over the whole process manually. This allows for resources to be utilised elsewhere, increasing the productivity of the whole process.

Applications of the CMZ Lathe

Polygon Turning

Flat planes are created through the synchronised rotation of a spindle and live tool to produce non-circular forms. With the addition of a specialist tool, your CMZ CNC lathe can easily perform this operation. This process can create hexagonal bolt heads and flat planes.

Oscillation Cutting

To ensure the integrity of your finished workpiece as well as maintain productivity and employee safety, oscillation cutting can enable chip breakage, reducing the long-stranded chips that you may find during constant cutting operations. This reduces the need for the stop and start of processes to clean up lathes.

Automation of Loading Clamping Fixtures

Clamping fixtures can be used to load our CMZ slant bed lathe machines to increase the productivity of processes. This automated process ensures a smooth and continuous process, allowing for an increased output of finished workpieces.

Automation of Machining Shafts

Machining shafts can be easily transported from a storage area to the workstation with the use of the GL 20II Gantry loader system. When combined with the WS700 workstocker from CMZ, you can experience complete automation, allowing you to leave your CMZ lathe unmanned.

Choosing the Right CMZ TA Series CNC Lathe for Your Business

There are three different CNC lathes in the CMZ TA Series that come in multiple configurations. The main differences between each of these CMZ slant bed lathes are the z-axis travel and additional attachments. For example, the Z400 has a z-axis travel of 400mm, and is compatible with the Gantry Robot and tailstock but there is no subspindle option for this particular model. However, the Z640 has a subspindle option plus a 640mm z-axis travel and is compatible with a Gantry Robot and tailstock.

By accounting for the types and sizes of products you will be creating and the compatibility with other machinery, you can find the right CMZ CNC lathe for your business.
