The SJ-20, a 45-degree slant bed lathe from Absolute Machine Tools, has been added to its Ecoca line of CNC lathes. This turning center is said to be ideal for high production and job shop operations requiring speed, power and accuracy for small parts turning. The machine features linear ways, and its compact size saves floor space. An optional bar feed package is available for shops seeking turnkey productivity. Lathes can be fitted with a C axis and live tools for gaining additional productivity.
