Latest Colchester MultiTurn unveiled at EMO

600 UK launched its Colchester MultiTurn two-axis manual/CNC lathe at EMO 2017 in Hanover last month. The new MultiTurn is a simple, flat-bed CNC lathe that now incorporates a Siemens 828D control with ShopTurn as a standard feature, although Fanuc 0iTF with Manual Guide i can be fitted if preferred.

The Siemens 828D control with ShopTurn has a reputation for being user-friendly and intuitive, ensuring that operators can machine parts 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, says the company.
600 UK offers six Colchester MultiTurn models, starting with the compact MultiTurn 1000, which has a 330 mm swing over bed and a 7.5 kW motor outputting spindle speeds of 3500 rpm, through to the heavyweight MultiTurn 6000, which has a 760 mm swing over bed and an 18.5 kW motor giving spindle speeds of up to 1400 rpm. The MultiTurn 6000 has bed length options ranging from 1.5 to 6 m.
Paul Rushworth, 600 UK sales director, says: “The new Colchester MultiTurn, with the addition of Siemens 828D with ShopTurn, gives customers even more flexibility when choosing a new turning machine. We are constantly expanding our range of Colchester and Harrison products, and the MultiTurn is a natural progression in adding more options that customers want.”
