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).

View the slideshow to learn more about these machines, and visit the Turning Machines Zone for more on turning equipment.
