See Hwacheon’s Revolutionary C1 Series Lathe at IMTS- Game Changer

Half turning center, half machining center (Y- and C-axis control), the C1 Series Multi-Process Turning Center can completely manufacture parts with complicated shapes in a single chucking operation. The C1 processes not only with ease, but also with maximum efficiency. Engineered with a triple stack turret with a tool changer, the C1 holds up to 36 tools and increases productivity. A multitude of tools allows for the precise machining of complex parts with drastically reduced setups, enables multiple jobs to be tooled up and is ideal for short run jobs.

To minimize thermal displacement, the arrangement of units in the heat-symmetrical structure provides superior thermal stability. Hwacheon’s original cooling system ensures that the rotary tool module inside the turret maintains exceptional processing quality, even during prolonged operation. Independent orthogonal structure of X, Y and Z-axes reduces feed error to zero for high rigidity and precision, even during prolonged processing.

The C1 swing over bed diameter is 28.74”, maximum cutting diameter 20.88”, maximum cutting length 23.58” and maximum spindle speed is 6,000 rpm. A range of C1 options are available, including an automatic tool presetter and a second spindle.
