SMTCL has announced the development of a new horizontal turning center, the EHC125300. SMTCL's National Sales Representative, Chad Turner stated, "Previously, major companies were not able to outsource large turning work, because many job shops did not have the machine tools to do the work accurately or cost effectively."
The EHC125300 is a high precision CNC Horizontal Lathe featuring swing over the bed of 1250mm or 49". The machine also can handle parts up to 3 meters in length or 118 inches. Another new product, the EHC125500 can handle parts up to 5 Meters or 196 inches in length. The machine can handle shaft parts weighing up to 11,000 lbs. The EHC125300 comes standard with a 1,000mm Chuck, 8 Position Turret, Steady Rest, Hydraulic Tailstock, and a Chip Conveyor.
Jerry McCarty, chief operating officer of SMTCL, added, "We use worldwide components on this machine. In addition to the high-quality Fanuc 0i-TF Control and Fanuc Motors, the machine uses THK Ballscrews from Japan, NSK Spindle Bearings from Japan, a German Stober Gear Box, and a German Sauter Turret. The machine weighs an amazing 44,000 lbs. and is priced under $300,000."
