The TVL10DC is a 50-hp vertical turret lathe that offers a 40" table, a swing of 48" and a 12-tool ATC. The machine has box ways on both the X and Z axes, with forced lubrication on all the ways. An 8" RAM structure on the Z axis is said to allow heavy duty cutting at maximum stroke. A two-speed gearbox provides low-end power; full 50-hp is available at 10 rpm. The machine features a Fanuc-0iT control.
