Ajax launches six CNC lathes starting at under 22k

Ajax launches six CNC lathes starting at under 22k

Added to MTDCNC by Ajax on 02 December 2013

First time in the UK is a new European built CNC lathe range with Fanuc touch screen control that starts with a swing over bed of 360 mm, a centre height of 180 mm and 750 mm between centres with a 24 month warranty for just £21,200.  Add another 250 mm to the bed length and the machine is still very competitively priced at £21,550 for a 1,000 mm machine.

The Ajax Evolution 3 Series comprises six machine capacities.  Included in the specification package is an automatic eight-station turret, tailstock, automatic speed range change and Fanuc drives to match the Fanuc OiTD Mate touch screen control with Turnmate i software.  By incorporating the touchscreen feature this makes the machine the easiest to use on the market today where a beginner is quickly able to pick up the use of the different cycles.  Also, with full ISO programming and RS 232 communication port the machine also has the ability to be used in manual cycle mode through the electronic hand wheel.  

The machine range is built on heavy duty beds each with hardened and ground ways and spans centre heights from 180 mm on the Evolution 3 AJEV 180 to 500 mm on the largest AJEV 500.  Bed widths and lengths are available according to model between 250 mm by 750 mm to 500 mm by 5,000 mm.  The largest machine in the series weighs in at 10 tonnes which reflects the levels of stability from the design and build.

Main drive motors are rated at 7.5 kW, 4,000 revs/min for the AJEV 180 to 22 kW, 1,400 revs/min on the AJEV 500 with constant surface speed as standard to maximise quality and minimise turning time on facing operations.  Spindle bores range from 42 mm to 130 mm and tailstock diameter/strokes from 58 mm by 180 mm to 120 mm by 300 mm.  

There is a large range of options including BOB CAD DNC Windows communication software and CAM, plus travelling and fixed steadies, a range of high quality chucks as well as tooling sets.
