C-Turn CNC Teach-Style Lathes

C-Turn CNC teach-style lathes from KAAST Machine Tools are available with a large spindle bore (6", 9", 12" or 14") and double chuck system. Swings are available from 18" to 51" with lengths from 40" to 244". Spindle motors range from 7.5 HP to 60 HP.

"These machines are carefully crafted with accuracy and high performance in mind," said a company spokesperson. "Additionally, these machines are very user-friendly - the operator does not need to have previous knowledge of CNC programming or have a G-code background."

The headstock is manufactured from thick wall and heavily ribbed casting to provide a smooth and quiet turning machine. All gears and shafts are precisely hardened and ground. The main spindle is precision machined and ground from a large one-piece forging, allowing spindle speeds up to 3,100 RPM. The bed is made of high grade Meehanite cast iron with maximum stability to absorb cutting forces and dampen vibrations. The bedways are hardened and precision ground (HRC 55-60). All slide ways and drive elements are automatically lubricated. The undersides of the saddle as well as cross slide are coated with Turcite-B to help ensure accuracy and long life.

"The optional automatic tool changing systems, H4, V8 or V12 turret, provide high performance and high production with flexible and accurate tooling, which is optimized to meet the most demanding job schedule," said the spokesperson.

KAAST Machine Tools, Inc., based in Ardmore, PA, is the U.S. arm of KAAST Werkzeugmaschinen of Neum√ľnster, Germany.
