TRAUB CNC sliding headstock automatic TNL12

The concept of the TRAUB TNL12 is based on the innovative arrangement of all four tool carriers in two working levels that cross each other. The tool carriers 1 and 2, each with 6 stations for stationary or individually driven tools, are designed as turrets with high-precision and very fast indexing. The chip-to-chip time is 0.3 seconds. The front working and rear end machining units have up to four stations each for stationary or individually live tools. A high level of complete machining is achieved by using a counter spindle with identical design in combination with the main spindle (bar diameter up to 13 mm, maximum number of revolutions 12,000 rpm). Up to four tools are used on the two spindles simultaneously.


Independently of the configuration, the TNL12 is very compact and thus can be integrated ideally in existing machine groups. Its working area can be accessed very well from both sides. Because of tool holders that are preset outside of the machine, the setup times are exceptionally short. Hereby, the patented tool mountings ensure precise positioning with repeating accuracy.


New TRAUB CNC control TX8i-s

The TNL12 comes with the new TRAUB TX8i-s control. It is based on the CNC hardware from Mitsubishi while the user interface software – like all models developed in the last 30 years – is a one hundred percent TRAUB development.

The advantage is obvious: Customers need not rely on standardized software products; rather customer and application needs can be implemented and integrated optimally into the development. Of course, the control is compatible with all previous TRAUB controls so that existing programs can be used.

Numerous details are testament to the quality of the TRAUB controller, including:

  •          reduced set-up time due to higher NC performance
  •          interactive programming, optimization and simulation in dialog or in NC mode
  •          error avoidance and setup time reduction through object-oriented interactive guidance
  •          sensitive tool breakage and wear monitoring
  •          compatible with all previous TRAUB controls
  •          high availability
  •          optimal support because the machine, control and drive are from a single source
