Latest MACH flat-bed lathes feature DynaPath control

MACH Machine Tools, part of the Vigilance Group, has introduced twoflat-bedCNC lathes into the market, both equipped with the DynaPath WinDelta control system.
The 8” (three-jaw) chuck MDL 1600 lathe and the larger 8/10” (three-jaw) chuck MDL 1800 model are equipped with 7.5kW/3500rpm spindles (12Nm), four-tool position turrets, sub-spindles (1kW/4000rpm), manual tailstocks (150mm travel), and boast 5 m/min rapids on their X and Z axes.

Capacity is model dependant.The MDL 1600 has X- and Z-axis travels of 230 and 820mm respectively, and a distance between centres of 1050 mm,while the MDL 1800 has 350mm (X-axis travel) and 1000mm (Z-axis travel) with 1250mm between centres.

The X and Zaxes on both machines feature precision ground box ways and precision ball screws for high accuracy and process optimisation.Both machines are suitable for performing a range of machining operations – turning, parting, grooving, facing, threading and tapping, as well as keyway, face and cylindrical milling of precision parts.

The DynaPath WinDelta control with 12.1” touchscreen available on all new MACH Machine Tools’ CNC lathes, tool-room mills and machining centres, is one of the most widely used control systems in the world. Deployed extensively in the US and the Far East for over 50 years, MACH Machine Tools says that the DynaPath control is flexible, versatile and easy-to-use, providing customers with simple-to-understand navigation and operation screens accommodating ISO and conversational programming on one platform. With online CAD editing capabilities, semi-auto functions and DRO operation, the DynaPath control provides power, speed and capability to even the most discerning machinist.
