Frequently Asked Questions:
What is the dimension of the workpiece receiving foot on TC series lathes?
Dimensions of the detail receiver box L. 160 x w. 160 x D. 60.
What does it mean that the horse is towed?
The horse does not have its own propulsion system (screw, motor). It can be pulled up to a certain position by hooking it to the base of the tool head.
What is the closest the counter-spindle will get to the main spindle on a TC series lathe?
The idea of intercept in a lathe is chuck-to-chuck contact. On the TBI TC300 lathe, the jaws of the counter-spindle and spindle chucks come down to zero.
What is the speed range on each gear of the main spindle gear?
We use a two-stage gearbox. The transmission is synchronized with the engine’s operation, and gear shifting occurs at the most opportune moment.
The characteristics of the engine and transmission are adjusted so that the shift from gear to gear occurs at the optimal point for power and torque.
What does the value of "turning diameter above the slide" mean?
The turning diameter above the slide occurs with flat-bed lathes.
How is thermal deformation compensation (an option in the HH 620 control) implemented?
Thermal distortion compensation is activated in the PLC and based on temperature readings from additionally installed temperature sensors. They are located at characteristic points of the machine tool and compensation is made there.
What is the head indesication accuracy of SDVH series gantry milling machines?
This is approximately – 0.0038° (applies to manual heads indexing with Hirth rings).
Can the chip conveyor also be mounted on the right side, not just the left?
Yes. It is mounted on the left side as standard. The transfer to the right requires minor mechanical and electrical modifications.
If the customer wants the conveyor to be on the right side, this should be informed before purchasing the machine.
How much does the tower (Z-axis) drop during a power outage/cut?
In TBI machine tools, this value is up to 0.02 mm, (this is very little compared to other brands, where it is usually as much as 0.5 – 0.8 mm).
Are TBI machine tools suitable for chucking?
Chamfering is the last part of the screw termination / chamfer under the thread.
TBI machines do not perform such operations. Use specially designed machines for chubbing.
Is the screw chip conveyor on TBI machines hardened?
It is not tempered.
What type of clutch is used in transmitting propeller drive?
It is a REDOX clutch.
How does the clamping of the workpiece by means of claw-type takers in the lathe work ?
If the workpiece cannot be machined along its entire length due to holding in the chuck, it is clamped in claw takers. It is machined along its entire length without violence.
