Product Spotlight Slideshow: Turning

Integrated conveyor. Removable guide bushing. Simple cellular configuration. These are just a few of the turning center design elements highlighted in our April Modern Equipment Review Spotlight.

April’s Modern Equipment Review Spotlight focuses on turning centers and lathes, and many of the machines highlighted have features designed to ease turning operations in some way. A few examples include the integrated conveyor seen in the Emag VL 8 pick-up turning center (left); right- and left-hand Emco Maier VT160 Duo models that can be easily joined into a cell (upper right); a simpler spindle design that doesn’t require an adapter for collet use in the Hardinge GS 51 (middle right); and a removable guide bushing in the Nexturn SA 38PY Swiss-type lathe from Absolute (bottom right).
