Introducing Our Latest Colchester CNC Lathe

Introducing Our Latest Colchester CNC Lathe
08/03/2018

We have recently been enjoying utilising our latest Colchester CNC lathe – the newest addition to our CNC large turning section here at Hone All Precision. The Colchester Lathe Company, based in Heckmondwike in West Yorkshire, is one of the world’s leading producers of CNC lathes and supporting equipment. Supplied by R K International, whose exceptional support and service is invaluable to us here, the additional machine has increased our capacity to help deal with the increase in orders due to the upturn in the Oil & Gas sector.

Our new acquisition is a 2m flatbed lathe from the Colchester Centre Lathe series. We selected it for its ease-of-use, simplistic programming and efficiency, and the opportunities it offers for a range of specialist modular upgrades. For performance and accuracy, Colchester lathes are hard to match. Our new lathe is also one of the fastest machines we have had the pleasure to work with, increasing our work capacity and allowing us to reduce lead times on many client projects.
