Toolmex Announces Boldly Redesigned TUR-MN Manual Plus CNC Series Lathes
Press release date: July 23, 2010
SCHAUMBURG - Toolmex Corporation announces a bold new redesign of their TUR630MN and TUR710MN series Manual Plus CNC long bed lathes, transforming the appearance and operation of the popular series while creating an ideal solution for better machining, greater precision, straightforward operation and easier maintenance than ever before. Available as 25" or 28" swing over bed with 78", 118" or 157" between centers, the redesigned models incorporate the best features from its predecessors-such as a 17" wide precision TRI-V bed design for higher accuracy, longer service life and no fishtailing-with new features designed to promote safety, user-friendliness and enhanced performance.
"As the exclusive US distributor of Haco, the European builder of the TUR series, we are excited to present these newly redesigned lathes to our customers," said Tom Kob, Toolmex Machine Tool General Manager. "Industries like our TUR-MN lathes because they are so machinist-friendly due to the straightforward programming that requires minimal G-code knowledge and optimizes the skill level of the lathe operator, making production more efficient. The limited manual function also helps operators to apply their special knowledge and practical experience working with conventional machines."
With the redesigned TUR-MN series enhanced guarding package, operators can enjoy better access to work pieces during setup and measurement as well as improved chip and coolant capture within the work area. A new independent overhead swivel control station keeps cabling secure against damage, above the chip area and out of harm's way. In addition, the new generation TUR-MN models now feature autoshifting ranges on all lathes for increased operational efficiencies.
Job Shop software is available on redesigned TUR-MN lathes with choice of CNC: Shop Turn with Siemens 840Dsl, Manual Turn with Siemens 810D, or Manual Guide i with Fanuc 0-iD. Absolute encoders on feed motors for Z-axis and X-axis mean homing is not required and the display shows the axes position data in the work piece co-ordinate system (WCS) or machine co-ordinate system (MCS). In the event of power outage or interruption, tool position will not be lost. The hydraulic unit is a standard, allowing future installation of hydraulic components, such as power chucks or power steadies, without adding expensive hydraulic hardware.
