The NILES-SIMMONS Cranks­haft Turn-Broa­ching Machi­nes N20 TB and N30 TB are based on the modu­lar buil­ding-block sys­tem of the N‑series. Two sym­me­tri­cally arran­ged tool spind­les with powerful and elec­tro­ni­cally syn­chro­ni­zed spindle dri­ves and two mir­ror imaged broa­ching units with highly dyna­mic rotary axes to locate the tool discs ensure effi­ci­ent tur­ning and turn-broa­ching ope­ra­ti­ons on cranks­haft bea­rings and other con­cen­tric fea­tures of cranks­hafts. The use of maxi­mum 2x48 tool pockets to locate the rever­si­ble cut­ting inserts ensu­res high fle­xi­bi­lity and long tool life due to the use of sis­ter tools.
