12/4/2016 Heavyweight turning reinvented with the Colchester Magnum at MACH 2016

Not only did the new ultra-heavyweight Colchester Magnum centre lathe make it's debut at MACH 2016, but 600 UK gained their first UK sale directly at the exhibition on the first day of opening.

Colchester's heavy duty centre lathes are renowned for the best quality and highly reliable turning machines that give outstanding service, requiring the absolute minimum of maintenance over their working life.

The New Magnum centre lathe joins the Colchester range after popular demand from customers and distributors alike and is no different to the rest of the range in offering outstanding quality and value for money.

The Magnum is available with 660 and 800mm swing over bed options, centre distances up to 4000mm and with spindle bore options up to 230mm, is designed to be totally comfortable with any heavy metal turning requirement.

Howard Bamforth, 600 UK sales director says “Out of all the new products that 600 UK has brought to the market in the last 12 months, this is the product that our distributors most wanted us to design and build. The Colchester Magnum and Magnum LS centre lathes have taken all the strengths of the Colchester Centre lathe and produced a heavyweight version that has all the power, strength and standard production features to meet almost any large turning requirement in the field of Oil and Gas, Utilities and the shipbuilding industries.”
