Ajax Megerturn HD Flat Bed CNC Lathes.

Ajax Superturn 840 CNC Lathe

The AJAX Megerturn Heavy Duty CNC Lathes range is now now heavier and stronger with the new Fanuc 0i TF Plus CNC control. These heavy duty CNC lathes can be used as a manual lathe by using the electronic hand-wheels. The control is used as a simple DRO measuring system. With the Manual Guide option the Fanuc process of programming is fully conversational making programming easy. This same ease can be found with the Fagor 8058 or 8060 & Siemens 828D Shopturn control systems. CE & CA Marked as standard.

Turning has become Megaturning.

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 Megerturn 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 Megerturn 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 program.
For complicated shapes and batch production, full ISO programming on all the control options.

The AJAX Megerturn HD machines include fully enclosed guarding, meeting CE regulations, automatic 4 way indexing toolpost, automatic speed range change with the control and monitor fitted on a sliding pendant.
Machine programs can be up and downloaded through the USB Port or saved directly to a USB stick.


The range starts at 660 mm to 1,420 mm swing, with bed lengths varying from 1,000 mm to 6,000 mm, spindle speeds vary for sizes of machines but all have constant surface speed (CSS) fitted as standard.

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 1,000 ’th of a Micron which is 1,000 ’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 envelope down to less than +/- 0.002.

Most of our competitors are way over this and cannot test it or prove it.

Delivery & Installation.

Our delivery companies can deliver your machine and offload it with a variety of ways. Then either drive it in with a versa lift or skate it in to position. Then once its there our fully trained engineers will level and commission it. Once this is done we will train you in its operation.
