Rigid Box Way Design
Hi-TECH 550 incorporates rigid box way design which makes it an ideal turning center for heavy duty turning. It’s available as standard, long or extra long version for extra-long workpieces, with programmable tailstock and steady rest for higher stability and precision. Machining precision is enhanced even further if the Hi-TECH 550’s axes are installed with highly accurate linear glass scales; the fast turret indexing time of 0.2 seconds per step will increase your productivity.
Tough, Rapid Indexing Turret
The turret at Hi-TECH 550 is designed with powerful clamping system and offers faster, more stable machining.
Programmable Tailstock (Standard)
The tailstock can be programmed to position and provides firm support for extra-long workpieces, operated either by the foot switch or by programming with stable oil pressure chucking.
Steady Rest (Option)
Add the Steady rest when working with extra-long workpieces to increase machining precision.
User Friendly Design, A Wide Range of Optional Features
Hi-TECH 550 is designed to be user friendly, so you can concentrate on what you do best: creating quality products-without losing your valuable time to the worries of machine failure and safety. A wide variety of performance upgrade options are available for faster, more precise machining.
