Comparison of Configurable Prismatic Bed Lathes
Nowadays, most machining workshops look for ways to reduce their production times and increase profitability. To achieve that, it is important to find a highly configurable lathe able to machine any type of part regardless of the technical characteristics. If you are considering purchasing a new CNC lathe, the market currently offers a wide range: DMG Mori NLX 1500, DMG Mori NLX 2000, DMG Mori CLX 350, DMG Mori CLX 450, DMG Mori CTX alpha 300, DMG Mori CTX alpha 500, DMG Mori CTX beta 1250, DMG Mori Lynx 2100 LB, DMG Mori Lynx 2100 LMB, DMG Mori Lynx 2100 LYB, DMG Mori Lynx 2100 LSYB, CMZ TA Series, Doosan Puma 2100, Doosan Lynx 2100 LB, Doosan Lynx 2100 LMB, Doosan Lynx 2100 LYB, Doosan Lynx 2100 LSYB, Mazak Quick Turn 100, Mazak Quick Turn 200, Mazak Quick Turn 250… Discover their technical characteristics in depth.
TA Series: your ally in all machining challenges
With over 2,000 machines sold, the TA Series is CMZ's top selling product. With prismatic bed lathes, having a range of reliable machinery is key to achieving the desired finishes and to that end, it is essential to compare different models. In this case, the TA Series has 3 different models (Z400, Z640 and Z1100) which offer users a high degree of configurability for machining. In addition, their fully oil-cooled turret with integrated 12,000 rpm driven tool motor, make it possible to increase precision and reduce machining times.
This characteristic is of the utmost importance, because the oil cooled motorised turret provides greater thermal stability. In addition, their integrated spindles, which are also oil cooled, have no belts or pulleys, and so indicators like the jump are reduced considerably. When comparing different models you can also find lathes with belt-activated spindles and this can lead to a lack of precision in the finish on the parts.
The TA Series is highly configurable, as models can be chosen with a travel range of 400 mm, 600 mm or 1,100 mm. It is also possible to automate short and long batch runs with the GL robot 20 II, which unlike other Gantry loaders, has in this case, 3 axes (X/Y/Z) and a capacity of up to 20 kg.
The importance of choosing wisely
Choosing a high performance, reliable prismatic bed lathe is not easy due to the wide range of lathes currently available on the market: DMG Mori NLX 1500, DMG Mori NLX 2000, DMG Mori CLX 350, DMG Mori CLX 450, DMG Mori CTX alpha 300, DMG Mori CTX alpha 500, DMG Mori CTX beta 1250, DMG Mori Lynx 2100 LB, DMG Mori Lynx 2100 LMB, DMG Mori Lynx 2100 LYB, DMG Mori Lynx 2100 LSYB, CMZ TA Series, Doosan Puma 2100, Doosan Lynx 2100 LB, Doosan Lynx 2100 LMB, Doosan Lynx 2100 LYB, Doosan Lynx 2100 LSYB, Mazak Quick Turn 100, Mazak Quick Turn 200, Mazak Quick Turn 250…
If you are looking to maximise productivity in your workshop with the purchase of a powerful, versatile machine, slant bed lathes are a good ally. There is currently a wide variety of options and so it is important to choose with caution and in-depth knowledge of the technical features of the different models available.
In the manufacture of CMZ lathes, each stage in the process is carefully considered. For that reason more than 80% of the components of the machine are manufactured at our own facilities, taking great care over the product from the inside. This approach delivers high quality lathes with over 20 years of useful life, at very competitive prices, because we invest in ensuring the quality of the components. The sales of over 2,000 machines in the TA series are proof of our customers' trust and this could be the key element your company needs to maximise its productivity.
