CNC New offers a range of gang-tool lathes that includes the GT-ISL-25, GT-ISL-35, GT-ISL-45 and GT-ISL-50 models. Axis motors increase in size with each model, and the lathes can be equipped with FANUC, Fagor or GSK CNCs.

The smaller two models, the GT-ISL-25 and GT-ISL-35, provide spindle diameter capacity of 1" and 1 3/8", respectively. The GT-ISL-25 model offers 5 hp, while the GT-ISL-35 offers 7.5 hp. These C-axis models have small footprints and enable the use of live tools and bar feeders for secondary operations and high production rates. The lathes can be adapted with vibratory bowls and automatic loading systems for automated applications.

The two larger models of gang-tool lathes, the GT-ISL-45 and GT-ISL-50, offer 10 and 15 hp, respectively. The GT-ISL-45 features a 1-3/4" spindle diameter capacity, while the GT-ISL-50 offers a 2" bar-feed capacity through the spindle. Both models provide 18.5" X-axis travels and a low center height, enabling the addition of an eight- or 12-station turret directly to the machine table, in combination with gang tools. A driven tool turret is also available for heavier milling, drilling and live tool operations for complex workpieces.
