Index Traub - Sliding headstock automatic lathe - TNL18 dynamic

More dynamic. Shorter cycle times. - TNL18 dynamic sliding headstock lathe
The technical highlights give you measurable benefits for your production.

The TNL18 was designed to meet the varied requirements of typical long-turned and short-turned parts. The technical highlights and the new dynamics of the sliding/fixed headstock automatic CNC lathes TRAUB TNL18 dynamic will give you measurable benefits for your production. Just take the turrets designed as NC rotary axes, for example. Not only is their indexing extremely fast, they can also be freely positioned without any mechanical locks required. This allows the use of multiple tools, which in turn reduces the chip-to-chip times and increases the tool pool in the work area. The advantage is that you don’t have to do as much setting up, which results in higher productivity.
