How to choose
Questioned as to the difficulty experienced by the customer in knowing how to choose between a Delta 20/5, a Sigma 20, a Gamma 20 or even a Deco 20e or a, Willi Nef, Tornos Vice-President, head of Sales and Marketing explains: “The most important thing is not the number of machines which seem to be crowding out the mid-range parts market sector, but rather the possibility for the customer of finding a machine which precisely fulfils his requirements. Now more than ever, Tornos is offering platforms of products ensuring our customers can always find a machine which corresponds exactly to their requirements!”. The 6-axis version (Gamma 20/6) of this new machine will be on display at EMO, with a 5-axis version (Gamma 20/5) also available.
The 5-axis model uses the tried and tested kinematics which are behind the success of the Delta range, including a platten resting on 2 axes during operation and a fixed counter operation block.
