Swiss GT 26 – a new generation

Following six high-profile years on the market the Tornos Gamma 20 is now giving way to the new generation – the Swiss GT 26 (capacity 25.4 mm with end bar preparation); this machine will take Tornos to a new level in terms of performance and functionality.

The Swiss GT 26 uses the same kinematics that made the Gamma 20 machine so successful. It allows operators to quickly get to grips with the machine. The GT line is made up of two models equipped with 5 and 6 linear axes. The 5-axis model is equipped with proven classic kinematics. Its platten comprises X1 and Y1 axes for bar turning. The counter spindle support carriage is mounted on 2 linear axes X4/Z4 which enables it to take the workpiece to the cut and to move laterally opposite the block independently of the counter-operation tools, which may be fixed or rotating. These kinematics enable simultaneous machining for bar turning work and counter-operations.

6-axis version for more capabilities
The 6-axis version has the same kinematics, but the difference is that the counter-operation block has a vertical linear axis. These kinematics have the advantage of being able to double the number of tools available. In total, 8 tools are arranged in 2 rows of 4 tools. A maximum of 4 of these can be rotating. These 4 additional tools increase the options for performing complex machining on the rear of the workpiece. This axis also enables digital centring of the tools on the counter-operation block and a work movement for cross drilling.

Multiple tools for outstanding flexibility
The GT 26 can be equipped with up to 39 tools, 16 of which are powered. The platten is equipped with a motor that can accommodate various types of tool holder, including special devices such as a polygon tool, a thread whirling tool or inclined milling and drilling tools. The equipment is compatible with that of the Swiss ST 26 to ensure optimal flexibility of the machine inventory of customers using both machines.

The new Swiss GT 26 is a worthy successor to the Gamma range. To find out for yourself, visit Tornos at one of these upcoming trade shows, where the Tornos teams will be delighted to welcome you:

  • IMTS, Chicago, 8 to 13 September, stand S-8566
  • AMB, Stuttgart, 16 to 20 September, stand C-14
  • BIMU, Milan, 30 September to 4 October, Hall 3, booth B03
  • PRODEX, Basel, 18 to 21 November, B-46
The two ultra-powerful spindles also have constant torque which enables them to provide high torque at high speed. Although the Gamma 20 had a 20 mm capacity, the GT 26 can machine 25.4 mm diameter bars with preparation. The machine can work with or without guide bush.

The machine comes with an extensive range of basic equipment, for example a 20-bar pump as standard (5 electromagnetic valves and 2 switchable filters). Options also include a long workpiece extraction device and a full range of oil mist extractors. In addition, the Swiss GT 26 can be equipped with a Robobar SBF 326 bar feeder.
