    The Duality Lathe has been discontinued. For addon on turning capabilities please see Tormach RapidTurn: http://torma.ch/rt

    With all the same functions as the standard Duality Lathe this video displays the transformed 4th Axis Duality Lathe. With this new option, the Duality Lathe is transformed into a 4th axis by clutching in a precision drive mechanism. The drive is fully integrated into the mill CNC controller and has the same drive ratio as the conventional 4th axis, allowing both the Duality Lathe 4th axis and the 8 conventional 4th axis to be used on the mill (not at the same time). The Duality Lathe and Duality Lathe 4th Axis Drive combination greatly extend the capability of the Tormach mill and can be used for a wide variety of small or lightweight mill/turn operations.

    Duality Lathe Demonstration - Tormach CNC

    Watch Now

    The Duality Lathe has been discontinued. For addon on turning capabilities please see Tormach RapidTurn: http://torma.ch/rt

    The Duality Lathe is an entirely new concept in CNC mill accessories. When used in combination with a PCNC 1100 mill, this integrated machine accessory has the ability to be operated as a CNC lathe or a combination CNC Lathe/CNC Mill. When used alone, the Duality Lathe becomes a conventional Bench Top Manual Lathe. Mounting the Duality Lathe to the mill is very simple, it is mounted like a vise and two cords are added for power and control systems. The Lathe offers CNC turning, facing, drilling, tapers, threading, cut-off, and has the ability to mill complex shapes. Dedicated Lathe software, that include code programming wizards, is used to perform these operations. Tormach CEO Greg Jackson stated, "With this new invention we're enabling our customers to leverage their investment in a CNC mill by providing CNC lathe capacities for a fraction of what it would normally cost."

  • Mechanical & Electronic Edge Finder Demonstration - Tormach CNC

    Watch Now

    Electronic Edge Finder: http://goo.gl/WzTQ8
    Mechanical Edge Finder: http://goo.gl/6eqaK
    This video demonstrates the use of a mechanical edge finder and an electronic edge finder. Essentially, an edge finder is a dynamic indicator of the location of a workpiece edge with reference to the centerline of the spindle to which it is attached. Both versions of the edge finder are used in a similar fashion. The edge finder is put in the rotating chuck and the edge of the workpiece is moved towards the chuck. As the lower cylinder of the edge finder touches the edge, that lower cylinder "kicks" to the left (assuming a clockwise rotation as seen from above). When the kick is observed, the axis of the spindle and the edge of the workpiece are located to 1/2 the diameter of the edge finder.

    Click the link above to check out both Tormach Edge Finders on our website.
