New Teach-Style Lathe Series

With castings of high tensile Meehanite iron for maximum vibration dampening, the KAAST Machine Tools C-Turn CNC series of lathes are designed with many benefits. These machines are manufactured in Taiwan (meeting BS EN ISO 23125 standards).

The C-Turn series are teach-style lathes, with the ability to repeat long strings of directions for multiple reproductions. The Fagor 8055i/A TC control panel provides a conversational graphical interface, which does not require the user to have a prior CNC programming or G-code background. However, for those who wish, PLC and ISO (G-code) are fully integrated.

All slideways and drive elements are automatically lubricated and the undersides of the saddle as well as the cross slide are coated with Turcite-B. The forced lubrication and oil bath is combined in the headstock. The main spindle bores range from 3"-14" and are precision machined and ground from large one-piece forging. Double chuck systems are also available. The spindle and gears are made of carburized and ground CR-MO alloy steel. The three-point support on the spindle with two taper roller bearing and one roller bearing are designed for accuracy and rigidity. "The optional automatic tool changing systems (H4, V8, or V12) provide high performance and high production with flexible and accurate tooling," said a KAAST spokesperson. The lathe series also includes a built-in tool library for easy management of tools.

The C-Turn series also offers electronic hand-wheels for manual operation with simple and easy DRO mode. The headstock is manufactured from thick wall and heavily ribbed casting. All gears and shafts are precisely hardened and ground. Optional configurations are available.
