Leighton Buzzard-based Hone-All Precision, a subcontract supplier of machined components, has installed a new, large capacity Tuscan LC38 CNC lathe to help the company complete successfully in technology-driven environments such as the oil and gas industry. The 30-37kW/4-400rpm CNC lathe has 4150mm between centres and a 230mm bore through the spindle. This increases the available capacity in Hone-All Precision's turning and deep hole boring sections, as both machining processes can now be undertaken on the same machine. It extends the previous 3m turned length capacity to 4m-plus, while increasing the size of the billet that can be machined to 500mm diameter.
