DMTG North America (Dalian) has introduced the CKE Series CNC flat bed lathes designed to perform a wide range of turning applications with a high degree of machining flexibility and precision cutting. All main components on the CKE Series lathes are high quality, heavy-duty solid cast iron for rigidity, with Turcite-B coating on all surfaces between the saddle and the guideways. The bedways and headstock gears are hardened and ground, and all lathes have precision ballscrews, highly rigid precision bearings and automatic forced lubrication from a centralized oil system. CKE Series lathes are available with swings over the bed from 14" to 32" and swings over the cross slide from 7.09" to 19.29”. The lathes have automatic headstock gear changing and a horizontal four-position automatic indexing turret as standard equipment, with other optional vertical and horizontal turret turrets available, depending on the model. The lathes feature a stepless spindle with infinitely variable spindle speeds, and are available with a choice of Fagor 8055TC control, or Fanuc 0i-TC control.
