Colchester Machine Tool Solutions, rebranded from 600 UK, has launched a new line of Typhoon CNC turning centers, including linear and boxway models. The machines are designed to offer cutting performance and accurate component finish at every stage of operation.

Available models include the quick, low-friction linear L series and the heavy-duty boxway B series. The turning centers are available with variations including two-axis, C-axis, subspindle and Y-axis functions in a range of bar capacities to suit many turning applications.

The turning centers are fitted with a FANUC Oi-TF control system with Manual Guide i. 

The one-piece, cast-iron base has a 30-degree slant-bed design that lowers the center of gravity and improves ergonomics, maximizing precise cutting regardless of component complexity.

  • The Buzz about the B Axis

    The rotating milling head is a defining feature on a turn-mill machine designed for efficient production of complex parts in low volumes.

  • Rolling Threads Has Advantages

    With macros and canned cycles resident in the CNC on most contemporary turning centers, single point turning of OD threads can seem like almost a default process decision. However, for numerous applications, OD thread rolling has inherent advantages as an alternative to cutting threads.

  • Aluminum Molds In Three Weeks Or Less

    While aluminum molds are commonly used to create prototypes or to serve as stopgap bridge tooling, they are starting to receive greater attention for production work. This shop’s approach to creating aluminum molds in one day to three weeks is the same for each of these situations.
