For industrial-scale manufacture and to satisfy the highest demands on precision and in case of extremely complex parts. The CHALLENGE-7000 presents all technical advantages, which are characteristic of an efficient all-automatic CNC woodturning lathe.
The CHALLENGE-7000 is capable of turning, milling, grooving, engraving, drilling, and grinding.
Distance between centers: 1.750mm
Copying length: 1.450mm (depending on accessories like chucks, live centers, steady rest)
Copying diameter: max. 300mm (without magazine operation)
Specific characteristics of the CHALLENGE-7000:
Headstock and machine bed made of grey cast iron.
Pretensioned spindle bearing without backlash with thread M45 and MT4, hollow shaft for vacuum device.
