Kitako manufactures the most flexible, productive multispindle
chucker available. Their 4-spindle chuckers are offered with
horizontal or vertical spindles. and a vast array of loading
possibilities. While two spindles are in the machining area, the
two other spindles are outside of the work area, ready for load and
unload. This offers substantial time savings and increased spindle
uptime. Depending on machining cycle time, these machines will
out-produce 3 stand-alone CNC lathes in 1/3 the space and 1/3
the operators!

Shimada, like Kitako, provides the benefit of loading and unloading the
turning center while machining. Offered in a 2-spindle arrangement with
capacities from 6" - 12" 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 an
A/A or A/B load scenario
. Easily manually loaded, or automated with
gantry or robot systems.

Lico manufactures a CNC Multi-Slide screw machine unlike
any other. The LNTS series machine consists of (3) CNC
compound cross slides mounted on the spindle face, plus an
8-position live-tool turret with a pick-off spindle mounted on the
turret. This allows for up to (4) tools in the cut simultaneously,
with full backworking capability! This machine effectively  
"bridges the gap" between single spindle turning centers and
multi-spindle automatics, ideal for short and medium volume
production runs.
