The Citizen A20, an evolving 7-Axis CNC sliding head machine, furthers the quest for cost and performance, featuring the ability to switch between guide bush and non-guide bush types.

  • New capability to switch between guide bush and none-guide bush operating modes.
  • A20 is capable of machining bar stock up to ø25mm by installing the optional 25mm size chuck device.

Acclaimed for its excellent cost to performance ratio, the A20 has evolved as a 7-axis machine for ø20 mm applications with the advantage that it can be used with or without a guide bush. It can be used as a regular guide bush automatic lathe when machining long slender work pieces, and without a guide bush for shorter parts with minimal bar end remnants.

The guide bush can be quickly and simply mounted and removed.
The performance of the machine has been improved too. The high speed 10,000 rpm spindle enables optimised machining operations on smaller diameter bar material. The machining length per chucking is now extended to 200 mm enabling the number of re-chuckings and therefore cycle times to be reduced when machining long work pieces. As an option, bar material of up to ?25 mm can also be machined extending the range of work-pieces.
