Your One Stop Solution for any machine tool application
A combined machine is a machine tool that combines both CNC lathe and machining center functions. One combined machine can handle all machining. This group includes 5-axis machines. (Eliminates the need for multiple NC lathes and machining centers.)
Main Spindle Drive -- Couplings, Power Locks, and Oil Resistant Belts
Even if derivative CNC lathe or machining center have several main spindle drives, you'll find a complete line-up of products for belt drive, servo motor direct coupling, and built-in motor types at Tsubaki.
Servo Motor Direct Coupling Type
Tsubaki couplings are the best choice for coupling main spindles and servo motors
Built-in Motor Type
Power Locks are used to fasten rotors for built-in spindle motors
Belt Drive Type
The Oil Proof Type Ultra PX Belt can be used in environments in contact with oil. Because it is based on the high performance HC Type Ultra PX Belt -- with added oil resistance -- it offers the same transmission performance as the HC Series.
Table Feed Mechanism (X-, Y-, and Z-axes) -- Cableveyors and Couplings
Combined machines also use a variety of methods to turn the motor that feeds the ball screw and move the table.
Tsubaki offers a selection of couplings to match your needs in connecting the feed spindles (X-, Y-, and Z-axes) of the ball screw and servo motor, and Cableveyors to securely support and guide the cables and hoses as the equipment moves.

Machine Movement -- Cable Carriers (Cableveyor®)
Automatic Tool Changer (ATC) Systems -- ATC Chain and Power Locks
ATC systems are also used on 5-axis machining centers and other machining center derived combined machines.
Tsubaki has long years of experience and success with chain-type ATC systems. Choose from our complete line-up of Power Locks to find the ideal one for your tool changer arm connection.
Power Locks are used in ATC systems
Tool Post (Turret) -- Power Locks and Oil Resistant Belts
A turret consists of multiple tools for machining work pieces attached to a polygonal turret face, which can be indexed to any position.
Tsubaki timing belts and Power Locks can be found in applications that need accurate, precise indexing.
Chip and Coolant Handling System -- Chip Conveyors
We offer chip conveyors that carry metal chips generated when turning/cutting on combined machines, as well as coolant separators, slug recovery devices, and other items needed in coolant processing.
Chip conveyors are manufactured and sold by Tsubaki Mayfran
Overload and Wear Detectors -- Shock Monitor Overload Protection Devices
Tsubaki Shock Monitors quickly detect changes in power values and reliably detect overloads.
Installing an overload protection device can help you avoid defects resulting from broken tools and worsening yield rates.
Automatic Door Operation Mechanism -- Belt-type Door Operation Unit
With machine tools becoming all electric, Tsubaki developed a belt-type door operation unit that uses a DC brushless motor for automatic door operation.
