The system includes an unloader long enough to accommodate the machined work as it passes out the other side.

It might seem like a machine’s travels ought to determine the largest part it can machine, but that’s not the case with this application.

Thanks to these accessories at either end of the machine, the long workpiece actually passes through the lathe, getting machined as it goes.
