The Harrison Alpha XC 3-axis CNC / manual combination lathe range combines turning with driven tool and C-axis functionality, ideally suited for one-off and small and medium size batch machining. Designed for fast, high-quality repeatability, accuracy and surface finish to exacting toolroom accuracy standards (DIN 8605), which ultimately significantly reduces component production costs.
