The new MultiTurn is a simple, flat-bed CNC lathe now incorporating the powerful and user-friendly Siemens 828D control with Shopturn as a standard feature, although Fanuc 0iTF with Manual Guide i can also be fitted should the customer specify it.
The MultiTurn takes a highly established, robustly engineered lathe concept from Colchester that makes it the perfect machine for many of today’s CNC turning applications. The MultiTurn is everything that you come to expect from a Colchester lathe – robust, stable and highly precise, irrespective of the component size handled.
The Siemens 828D control with Shopturn has a well-earned reputation for being highly user-friendly and intuitive, ensuring that operators can cut quickly and easily with very little training. However, the Shopturn system is also powerful enough for more advanced CNC users to output maximum productivity quickly.
The Colchester MultiTurn lathe has been designed specifically for CNC users looking for increased versatility on one-off and small batch production, first time CNC buyers and jobbing shops looking for real programming simplicity and education and training establishments needing a real lathe with step-by-step simplicity.
