New B-axis on the SR-20 at Prodex

Since the start of sales of the initial model in 1992, the SR series has been frequently updated to meet the needs of the market. As Star’s best-selling complex machines, the total sales of this series have reached 12,000 units.

SR-20RIV accommodates a maximum machining diameter of 20 mm. There are two types in this series – Type A with six linear control axes and two rotary control axes, and Type B with a tool swing control axis (B) in addition to the functions of Type A. Both Types A and B are equipped with a function to select either a guide bush type or non-guide bush type according to the total length of parts to machine.

Up to 41 tools
The 27-positioned tool station can accommodate a maximum of 41 tools to allow a variety of tooling layouts. As for the control, the latest CNC unit is mounted to reduce the time required for program processing. Type B, a higher-end model, is equipped with a unique Star Motion Control System to minimize non-cutting time for switching the control system and changing tools.
