Ajax Brings An Evolution in Turning to MACH 2016

Added to MTDCNC by Ajax on 18 January 2016

MACH 2016 will be the promotional platform for Ajax Machine Tools to introduce its exciting line of Evolution 3 lathes whilst inviting customers to its Stand 5194 to celebrate the company's 75 year anniversary. The line of Evolution lathes will be introduced alongside Ajax's popular milling line that will see the AJV550 machining centre and the Interactive CNC milling machine appear alongside the turning line. 

Starting at just £19,950 as a special birthday price for 2016, the Ajax Evolution 3 Series is extremely flexible as it incorporates all the virtues of conventional turning, electronic cycle turning and full CNC turning; all in one machine. For the manual machinist, the Evolution offers electronic hand-wheels for turning with the control acting as a simple DRO measuring system. The Evolution can also be programmed via flexible electronic turning cycles that are well suited to small batch production. 

Either scenario is fast and efficient, as the operator doesn't need to be CNC trained to use the electronic cycles.  In just a few simple steps, the operator can produce multi-point profiles, tapers, radii, grooving and screw-cutting. All this can be conducted by following a few easy steps on the intuitive Fanuc control screen. Furthermore, these short cycles can be linked together to give a complete electronic programme. For the more seasoned machinist producing complicated shapes and larger batch production, the Evolution offers full ISO programming on the Fanuc 0i Turn Mate control.

AT MACH, Ajax will have the smallest machine in the range on its stand, the AJEV180 model. The Evolution AJEV180 provides an optional distance between centres of either 750mm or 1m with a 180mm centre height and 360mm swing over bed. However, the Evolution line is offered with a wide variety of dimensions and optional features to meet the demands of any modern machine shop. 

Across the six model variants in the Evolution Series, Ajax can provide lathes with a swing over bed from 360mm to over 1m and a distance between centres from 750mm to over 5m. To guarantee optimal machining over this diverse range, the Ajax Evolution is supplied with a spindle bore from 42 to 230mm, spindle motors from 7.5kW to 22kW and bed widths from 250 to 500mm, depending upon the model selected. This ensures that every Ajax customer receives a robust, rigid and precise package that combines high performance within a cost effective package.

The Ajax Evolution machines include fully enclosed guarding, CE marking, automatic 8 station tool turret, automatic speed range change and a new Fanuc touch screen control and monitor on a sliding pendant. All of this is supplied with an 18 month warranty and the peace of mind that the Evolution line is serviced and maintained in the UK by British engineers. Ajax is extremely proud of its 75 years of UK manufacturing heritage and we would be delighted if you would join our anniversary celebration on Stand 5194. Of course, Ajax has much more in its armoury that just the Evolution line, so if you want to discuss possible solutions for your complete machine tool needs, Ajax will be waiting in Hall 5 for your enquiry.
