With more than 25 percent more torque and horsepower and 24 percent more speed than the company’s previous turning centers, these units are true chuck and bar machines that will cut the toughest materials and handle deep interrupted cuts with ease while maintaining overall part accuracy and feature superior vibration damping accomplished through the use of heavy-duty linear roller guides mounted to a HARCRETE-reinforced cast iron base. This platform allows the user to tackle the toughest work virtually vibration free while reducing expenditure on today’s high-performance tooling by as much as 33 percent.
