Fryer Machine Systems has updated its Easy Turn series of toolroom combination lathes. Full manual operation enables anyone in the shop to use the machine with little training, the company says. Manual handles feature electronic stops and chamfer mode. A jog joystick enables manual feed control.

In addition, the machine features Do One cycles that enable operators to automatically thread, rough, turn, drill and tap one step at a time. Manual operations and semi-automatic operations can be mixed to speed one-piece production.

Shop Turn, an intuitive conversational programming system developed by Siemens, speeds automatic programming and features interactive graphic screens and simulations. The machine also uses G code and may be used with CAD/CAM systems.

The cast iron body features high-precision ballscrews and bearings as well as a two-speed headstock.
