Turning has become Superturning.
Centre lathe turning has progressed at an impressive rate since the conception of electronics, driving axis and spindles, and computer driven programming.
The AJAX Superturn HD range of machines, combines all the virtues of conventional turning, electronic cycle turning and full CNC turning all in ONE machine.
The AJAX Superturn HD machines can be used as a manual lathe by using the electronic hand-wheels, the control is used as a simple DRO measuring system. For the 1 offs and small batch production the Superturn can be programmed, using the flexible electronic turning cycles, its quick, its convenient and you do not have to be CNC trained to use the electronic cycles.
The AJAX Superturn HD machines include fully enclosed guarding, meeting CE regulations, automatic 4 way indexing toolpost, automatic speed range change and a Fanuc control and monitor on sliding pendant.
