CT-1118-CNC is the CNC version of CTL-618EVS manual toolroom lathe. It keeps the original machine's durability and elegant exterior while automating it with servos and CNC control.

With CT-1118-CNC's redesign it maintains the ability to use the tailstock and center to perform shaft work.  But now the cross slide can be removed and an innovative T-slot gang tool slide can be fitted, in minutes.

The gang tool slide works with a new complete line-up of tool holders from CYCLEMATIC for gang tool turning. Either traditional lathe tooling setup or gang tool setup are easy to swap out and exchange for the other. Now CT-1118CNC is the ONE CNC toolroom lathe that can bring you TWO different styles of machining capability.

This is the open version of the CT-1118. The spindle is a traditional Hardinge style with a 5C nose built in.  We use a vector type spindle drive giving constant surface speed. Spindle speeds are up to 4,000 as standard and optionally to 6,000 rpm. The Anilam CNC is standard.  Fanuc and others can also be supplied.

headstock assembly of the Cyclematic CT1118 CNC lathe
Solid one-piece enclosed headstock has high precision preloaded ball bearing spindle with 5C collet capacity.
High-precision preloaded ball bearing spindle is mounted in the solid one-piece enclosed headstock, providing maximum rigidity and sustained precision.
The collet seats directly in the hardened and precision ground spindle, eliminating troublesome sleeves and adaptors that introduce costly inaccuracies.
manual collet closer on the headstock of the cyclematic ct1118 cnc lathe
The fast lever collet closer provides faster chucking. The lever control end of the closer assembly is balanced and rides on a precision bearing. Collet tension is instantly adjustable throughout the full range from light to heavy holding power without the use of tools.
The spindle handwheel is built into the end of the spindle.
Entire collet closer is conveniently removed by pulling up the lock pin
economical power collet closer on the headstock of the cyclematic CT1118 cnc lathe
When requested, the lathe can be fitted with a easy type power collet closer to replace manual lever operation, this air operated collet closer features automatic chucking.
the solid tailstock of the cyclematic CT1118 cnc lathe
The solid full bearing tailstock supports any load to the preloaded ball bearing spindle headstock, The tailstock has 95mm(3-3/4") travel. The spindle is graduated in inch and metric for easy reading. Standard shank 2 morse taper tools are automatically discharged for easy operation.
step collet chuck for cyclematic and hardinge lathes

STEP CHUCKS are exceptionally useful for accurately holding work up to 6" in diameter. Castings, moldings, stampings and machined parts are held rigidly and accurately Tubing can be held without crushing or distorting.

STEP CHUCKS AND CLOSERS are carried in stock in 2", 3", 4", 5" and 6" rated sizes. All step chucks are supplied with pin holes in place for precision machining.

CHUCK CLOSERS fit directly to the machine spindle. A taper corresponding to that on the periphery of the step chuck places the closing pressure over the stepped area of the chuck, resulting in greater gripping power and accuracy.
