26/1/2017 Ultra-heavyweight Colchester Magnum centre lathes come of age
The new ultra-heavyweight Colchester Magnum centre lathe only made its debut at MACH 2016, a much-heralded addition to the Colchester centre lathe range after popular demand from customers and distributors alike.
In addition to this, 600 UK have now announced extra long bed lengths to the already successful range, offering even more increased quality and value for money for the operator.
The Colchester Magnum is still available with either 660 and 800mm swing over bed options but can be ordered in centre distances now up to 6000mm – up from the previous 4000mm.
With spindle bore options up to 230mm, and fitted with 20kW spindle motors, the Magnum is designed to be totally comfortable with any heavy metal turning requirement thrown at it.
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.
Mike Berry, 600 UK managing director says “The Colchester Magnum and Magnum LS centre lathes have taken all the strengths of the Colchester centre lathe and produced an even heavier version than ever before, particularly in view of the new 5 and 6 metre models being introduced."
"Furthermore, they have 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 that you could ever need.”
