CT-1118CNC is the NC upgrade from CTL-618EVS manual toolroom lathe. It keeps the original machine¡¦s durability and elegant exterior while automating it with servos and CNC control. With CT-1118CNC's 2008 redesign, we go even further, the ability to use tailstock and lathe center to perform shaft work is maintained, but more importantly an innovative tool plate design adds the capability to remove the compound tool post and swap in T-slot gang tool slide in its place. The gang tool slide great work with a new complete line-up of tool holders from CYCLEMATIC for gang tool turning. Either traditional lathe tooling setup or gangtool setup are easy to swap out and exchange for the other. Now CT-1118CNC is the ONE CNC toolroom lathe that can bring you TWO different styles of machining capability.
