Colchester Machine Tool Solutions’ Typhoon CNC turning center  follows on from the Tornado range.  The Typhoon range offers cutting performance and accurate component finish during operations.

The range comes in models as a choice of either quick, low-friction linear (L series), or heavy-duty, boxway (B series) turning centers. These are all available with variations of two-axis, C-axis, subspindle and Y-axis functions in a range of bar capacities to suit turning applications.

The turning centers are fitted with a FANUC Oi-TF control system with Manual Guide i and are all manufactured with a one-piece cast-iron base with a 30-degree slant-bed design. This gives a low center of gravity and a better ergonomic design, maximizing precise cutting, regardless of your component complexity, the company says.
