According to the company, all TUR-MN/CNC 22"-25"-28"-32"-37"-43" swing lathes feature a TRI-V bedway design to maximize accuracy, rigidity and repeatability for difficult turning and boring applications, while at the same time extending the lathe's life and minimizing costly maintenance that results from instability and wear. An optional C axis for keyways or bolt hole patterns is available. The lathes are available with Fanuc or Siemens full CNC or manual Plus CNC controls. Available sizes cover toolroom class from 18" swing up to huge roll turning application needs over 98" dia. with long beds 60" to 720" bc, higher spindle speeds as fast as 2500 rpm, large 3.5" to 17.6" spindle bores, and models designed to handle bc parts as heavy as 50 tons.
