4-spindle CNC Chuckers
Kitako / Shimada manufactures the most flexible and production multispindle chuckers available. Offered with horizontal or vertical spindles from Ø4" - Ø15" chucks, they come with a vast array of loading possibilities. While 2 spindles are in the machining area, the other 2 spindles are outside of the work area, ready for load and unload. This offers substantial time savings and increased spindle uptime. Depending on machine cycle time, these machines can out-produce up to (3) CNC lathes!
VT4-350 vertical stand-alone
HS4200n with integrated single robot
Scenarios most appropriate for a Kitako/Shimada:
Lot sizes from several hundred to thousands of parts or families of parts.
Near-net shape parts where "cut" time is low, or load/unload time makes up a good percentage of overall TAKT time. ie: on a 40 seconds TAKT time scenario with 30 seconds of "cut" time, 10 second load/unload time (25% of overall TAKT) can be reduced to less than 1 second per piece! Significant production improvement!
When there is a significant imbalance between Op10 and Op20 cycle times, the machine can be set up to run (2) Op10 parts then (2) Op20 parts, so one spindle is not idle, waiting for the completion of the other spindle. The TAKT becomes the average of both operations, not the longest of both operations. (AA/BB operation)
Low "cut" time of both Op10 and Op20 operations - can be machined simultaneously (AB/AB operation)
Instances where loading a part is time-consuming, whether an irregular shape or requires special workholding. Loading is performed simultaneous to machining.

Shimada 2-spindle CNC Chuckers
Shimada, like Kitako, provides the benefit of loading and unloading the turning center while machining. Offered in a 2-spindle arrangement with capacities from Ø5" - Ø12" chucks, this is ideal for short cycle time secondary operations from screw machines, die castings, cold headed parts, forgings and powder metal parts, and lower lot size runs in A/A or A/B turning scenarios. Easily manually loaded or automated with gantry or robot systems.
Scenarios most appropriate for Shimada 2-spindle chuckers:
Small to medium lot sizes
Cycle "cut" times that are short compared to loading time (in terms of %)
Tasks with a big cycle time difference between the Op10 and OP20 operations
Tasks that require a large amount of time for chucking the part
Shimada 6-spindle CNC chuckers & bar machines
As the #1 Multispindle manufacturer in Japan, Shimada offers 6 & 8 spindle chuckers and 6-spindle bar machines that are based on a camless automatic platform. The machines can be equipped with up to (3) CNC XZ slides. These machines are compact and competitively priced!
Rough turning, drilling, thread rolling, tapping, etc., can be performed via the standard hydraulic driven slides, where OD/ID finishing, single point threading, etc., can be performed using the servo-driven CNC slides.
The Bar machine can accept up to Ø32mm bar stock.
