  • The combination of a tried and tested machine base with the most advanced feed technology makes the change to a servo-conventional lathe even more attractive and cost-effective

Intuitive operation as we know it from conventional machines - only much better:

  • Feed and thread leads can be selected via rotary switch - what a brilliant concept.
  • Stops can be set electronically with the push of a button
  • Feeds are infinitely variable between 50 and 100% via override potentiometer - finally available on a conventional lathe
  • Micro-control via electronic hand-wheels - but handling and positioning just as with a conventional machine
  • Axes are powered by high-quality servo drives that translate your hand movements with the precision and dynamics of modern CNC machines
  • Infinitely variable speed adjustment and constant cutting speed of headstock
  • Constant cutting speed: during face turning, the spindle speed automatically adapts to the changing workpiece diameter – the constant cutting speed at the cutting edge of the turning tool ensures superior turning results with quality comparable to CNC lathes

Machine Frame

  • Heavy ribbed machine bed with wide, hardened bed guides and V-blocks allow for heavy-duty machining
  • Headstock and main spindle are designed for optimum rigidity, vibration damping and temperature balance
  • This entire series also features large spindle bores
  • A quick-action tool changer is included in the standard package and ensures maximum flexibility and productivity


  • Ball screws on the X- and Z-axes ensure considerably fewer errors due to looseness (backlash), resulting in significantly higher precision


  • The low-maintenance machine is equipped with a central lubrication system
  • The heavy-duty tailstock is easy to handle and features high clamping force
  • Incl. 3-axis position indicator with integrated spindle speed display, fully assembled

3-axis position indicator

  • More accuracy
  • Lower error rate
  • Increased productivity
  • Resulting in valuable time savings
  • For increased productivity
  • Easy to read display
  • Operator-specific features
  • Convenient keyboard layout
  • Resolution: 0.0004 / 0.0002"
  • Default coordinates
  • Axis position is maintained when display is turned off
  • Storage for 10 tools
  • Radius / diameter toggle
