Heavyweight Harrison Alpha XS combination lathes have 5 & 6 metre centre distances
600 UK have now added extra capacity bed lengths to their already hugely successful heavyweight series of Harrison Alpha XS CNC combination lathes.
The heavy duty Harrison Alpha 1660XS and 1760XS models were introduced in 2015 and were specifically designed in response to increased customer demand for turning larger diameter components accurately, efficiently and more cost effectively, offering customers even more choice when choosing the best selling combination lathe in the world.
Both manual/cnc lathe models are of cast iron construction, to give maximum stability and could previously be specified with centre distances from 1.5 metres up to 4 metres, but now include both 5 and 6 metre configurations.
The Alpha 1660XS and 1760XS machines offer a high powered 18.5kW motor with 105 mm spindle bores (1760XS model has an optional bore of 155mm), outputting a spindle speed of 2000 and 1400 rpm respectively, which gives even more class-leading heavy duty turning performance and accuracy for even longer and larger diameter components.
The Alpha 1660XS and 1760XS models are fitted with the same unique Fanuc 0iTD / Harrison Alpha control system as the rest of the range. This Alpha control offers customers huge flexibility through the unique Harrison control, allowing 4 ways of working for the operator - from manual turning through to full CNC production incorporating Harrison’s renown Alpha System, which is widely acknowledged as the most simple and intuitive system in the world to use.
Mike Berry, 600 UK managing director said “Our Harrison Alpha combination lathe range is exceptional and we have listened to our many satisfied customers whose feedback demanded increased capacity whilst retaining the unique, operator friendly, Alpha control flexibility. We are delighted to satisfy this demand for higher specification products and to extend the Alpha range with up to 6-metre bed lengths on this range.”
