Cyclematic Precision Toolroom Lathe CTL-618-EVS.

Photo of the Cyclematic CTL-618-EVS electronic variable speed drive precision toolroom lathe built on a Hardinge style dovetail bed
This is the CTL-618-EVS Electronic Variable Speed . This is a clone of the Hardinge HLV-H. We fit the same family of vector drives into this machine as we use on our CNC machines.

These are available with spindle speeds having top speeds of 4,000 or 6,000 rpm. This model has thread cutting and electric variable speed feeds on the carriage.

Headstock and electronic variable speed control on the cyclematic CTL-618 precision toolroom lathe
  In this picture the lathe is shown with an Anilam Digital Readout.  This special version of the readout give us a tool file for tool length offsets. The readout can also be couple to the spindle drive and using the same algorithms as a CNC lathe you get Constant Surface Speed.

The current Acu-Rite readouts now have LCD screens with graphics. Colour and program save with upload and download are also available.

This class of lathe is renown for precision work.   Now with constant surface speed you can also make parts with superior surface finish.
