Hurco TM18i Heavy Duty Lathe (18″ Chuck)

Large Lathes for Heavy Duty Cycles

The Hurco TM18i CNC slant-bed turning center is a heavy duty slant-bed lathe and is a prime example of customer-centric design.  Rigidity is absolutely critical for turning heavy parts—that’s why we evaluate each design decision to ensure it promotes rigidity, reliability, and longevity. The generous turning diameter and turning length allows a wide range of large and long part sizes. The rigid one-piece machine base casting is designed to yield excellent static and dynamic performance in addition to outstanding dampening properties that inhibit thermal deformation and twisting, providing a more rigid turning center than competitive models in its class.
