Savannah currently has 36 CNC Mills, which includes twelve 4th axis, and four 5th axis machines. Our maximum table dimensions are 40”x20”
Savannah currently has 5 CNC Lathes, including two collets, one collet with a 3 jaw chuck, and two 3 jaw chucks that are capable of slug work up to 8" and bar work up to 2.6". Our maximum turning length is 1'.
In addition to our CNC equipment, Savannah also boasts 3 Manual Mills and 4 Manual Lathes. In sum, our expertise and technology ensure we consistently meet all quality specifications.
The Nakamura-Tome AS-200 is a live-tooling CNC lathe. CNC stands for Computer Numerical Control, which gives the machine immense control and allows it to make accurate parts down to the thousandth of an inch or less.
The Nakamura-Tome lathe is also equipped with live-tooling, which means that it is able to mill in the same fixturing as a part is being turned. It essentially combines the capabilities of a lathe and a milling machine, and is able to drill and tap and slot parts. (This saves time because a part can be completed at just one machine instead of doing one operation on a lathe and then taking it to a mill to do the next operation)
Another feature this machine provides is its spindle, which functions as another axis(C-axis). Having another axis that is free from the rest of the machine allows for more precise tooling at any angle.
Multitasking that completes the process faster - with the same precision and accuracy - is one of Savannah's main goals, and the Nakamura-Tome AS-200 allows us to do exactly that.
Zeiss Eclipse Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM)
The Zeiss Eclipse is one of our most important tools for quality assurance. The Zeiss "Coordinate-Measuring Machine", also known as a CMM, is a very powerful instrument. It is used to measure the geometric characteristics of a part and is accurate within twenty microns. The Eclipse uses a mechanical probe attached to a movable arm on a fixed bridge that rests above the table.
Using this probe, it is possible to check flatness of surfaces in the X, Y, and Z planes as well as check angles, bore holes, and threaded holes for improved accuracy. The Calypso software made by Zeiss is used in tandem with the machine assures unrivaled measurement accuracy and quality control.
The Fanuc RoboDrill Medium Bed is a high-performance machining center, known worldwide as one of the most reliable machines manufactured today.
RoboDrills make quick work out of any milling, drilling or tapping jobs. Reliability has also been addressed in all areas of the machine design. Coupled with the latest Fanuc 31i-B5 control, the RoboDrill is an excellent addition to Savannah's lineup of world class machining equipment.
