TPS-Series
Non-Circular Machining CNC Lathe

Top class piston machine in the world (piston lathe)

Various solutions are available for piston machining. TPS Series-Suitable for Machining of Versatile Next-Generation Pistons TPS is a Global Standard Piston Making Machine ! TPS is suitable particularly for high speed machining of oval workpieces such as engine pistons, piston rings, and pin holes of the automobiles (gasoline and diesel vehicles). TAKISAWA TPS is employed for Formula-1 engines! TPS has been used in the production lines of global piston manufacturers.

TPS-V1000
TPS-V1000 Vertical Piston Machine

Machine width 1180 mm smallest in class Next-Generation vertical machine is newly added !

This vertical CNC piston has an incomparably small width of 1180 mm, and furthermore, the capability is significantly enhanced. Ceramic slide and linear motor drive mounted to the non-circular machining device allow high speed machining, which leads to machining time reduction. TPS-V1000 of the standard specification and TPS-V1000T, which corresponds to the spindle synchronous rotation type NC servo tailstock specification, are available. Processes other than non-circular machining can be integrated by equipping the optional comb plate.

    Recently, for the pistons of some new type automobile light engines, the pin hole to connect the piston and rod is machined into non-circular bell shape to withstand explosive impact by the engine. TPS-3300HII is developed to provide innovative solutions for such machining challenges. Machining of this complicated shape requires high accuracy because the shape, which is similar to the bell part of a trumpet, consists of a curve and oval. This is an ID 3-dimensional machine combining the advantages of CNC lathe and ultrahigh-speed machining center. It can easily clear the challenges by TAKISAWA's original spiral scraping method. Also, it can finish machining faces like a mirror.

    It is developed based on the TPS series which has already obtained international patent and experience in piston OD 3-dimensional machining. Its unique dedicated interactive software and incomparably highly accurate ceramic mechanism gain absolute confidence of engineers in machining of pistons for general automobile and even Formula 1.

    The new machining methods developed by this machine will give further impetus to energy saving design of pistons, and provide free ideas considering environment to designers concerned about machining limitations.
