The machine table also has a home position on the right to allow loading and unloading and can be fully automated.

With advanced ballscrew design and uprated tailstock clamping this allows the turning in both plus or minus on both axis to increase cycle times and boost productivity.

This allows production that runs that require two machines or just one machine, giving total flexibility for turning and milling and integrating automation when required.
