600 UK’s Colchester MultiTurn two-axis manual/CNC lathe is a flat-bed CNC lathe. It  incorporates the Siemens 828D control with Shopturn as a standard feature, although FANUC 0iTF with Manual Guide can also be fitted. 

The Siemens 828D control with Shopturn is intuitive, ensuring that operators can cut quickly and easily with minimal training, the company says. The Shopturn system can also be used for more advanced CNC users to output productivity.

According to the company, the lathe was designed specifically for CNC users looking for increased versatility on one-off and small batch production, first-time CNC buyers and jobbing shops looking for real programming simplicity, and education and training establishments needing a lathe with step-by-step simplicity.

The lathe comes in different models, starting with the compact MultiTurn 1000, which has a 330-mm swing over bed, a 7.5-kW motor, outputting spindle speeds of 3500 rpm, and the MultiTurn 6000, which has a massive 760-mm swing over bed and an 18.5 kW motor giving spindle speeds of up to 1400 rpm, the company says. The MultiTurn 6000 also has bed length options ranging from 1.5 m to 6 m.
