Star CNC Machine Tool Corp.’s SF‐25 turn-mill lathe features a 24-station tool changer and a 10-station turret with as many as three tools in each station. The turning center is designed to produce complex and odd-shaped parts for the medical industry quickly and precisely, the company says.
 

The 22-mm capacity, fixed-head turn-mill is equipped with a 20,000-rpm spindle to accommodate small tools. Other features include a compact design; a back-churn unit that enables machining all six planes of odd-shaped parts; a two-face constraint coupling for chucking a tool in the tool spindle; a spindle chiller to minimize thermal displacement; and a high-pressure coolant unit.
