Ajax SUPERTURN HD Flat Bed CNC Lathes
The New AJAX Superturn Heavy Duty CNC Lathe range is now now heavier and stronger with the new Fanuc 0i TF control. These heavy duty cnc lathes can be used as a manual lathe by using the electronic handwheels, the control is used as a simple DRO measuring system.
For one-offs and small batch production the Superturn HD 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.
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.
These AJAX Superturn HD machines can be used as a manual lathe by using the electronic handwheels, 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.
You can produce tapers, radii, grooving, multi point profiles and screw cutting by answering simple questions direct from the Fanuc screen. These electronic cycles can then be linked together to give a complete electronic programme.
For complicated shapes and batch production, full ISO programming on the Fanuc 0i Turnmate i control is possible.
The AJAX Superturn HD machines include fully enclosed guarding, meeting CE regulations, automatic 4 way indexing toolpost, automatic speed range change and new Fanuc touch screen control and monitor on sliding pendant.
Machine programmes can be up and downloaded through the USB Port or saved directly to the PMCIA card.
The range starts at 330mm centre height to 560mm centre height, with bed lengths varying from 1000mm to 6000mm, spindle speeds vary for sizes of machines but all have CSS fitted as standard. Axis and spindle drives are all Fanuc to give reliability and longevity of service.

Accuracy is very important here at Ajax we are one of very few companies in the UK who have a Renishaw XL80 laser measurement machine. It can measure down to a Nano of movement which is a 1000’th of a Micron which is 1000’th of a Millimetre. We then use this data to calibrate the machine down to very high accuracy. This can be done on your site if required and re do this on an annual basis to keep your machine accurate. Normal results get machines over the entire working envolope down to less than +/- 0.002.
Most of our competitors are way over this and cannot test it or prove it.
