The CK 3000 is part of the company’s new series of horizontal CNC turning centers, which includes the CG, CK, CP and CPX models. The series is designed for large workpieces such as oil field pipes, pipeline control valves and power-generating components for the wind, energy and nuclear industries. These machines are also well suited for long work pieces such as shafts for ships and roller shafts used in the textile industry. The CG and CK models are the largest, with a 14.5" and 12.5" spindle bore respectively. They can be configured for a 34" or 40" swing and 80" to 280" length. The CPX and CP models, which have a 9.25" and 7.09" spindle bore, can be configured for swings of 46" and 50". For models in the series, axis travel in X is 20.86" and from 82" to 280" in Z. The bed is 28" wide and features two V guideways, while a boxway carries the cross slide. All machines are equipped with the Fanuc 0iTD control unit with Manual Guide I. A threading repair function in the software is a notable feature. Also on display will be a 78"-swing vertical lathe from the company’s EVL series.
