Praktikant VCD

One of the best selling and most popular precision engine lathes

impresses through:

  • Sophisticated technology
  • Extreme accuracy
  • Durability
  • Field-proven ergonomics
  • Extremely small footprint
  • and an extensive range of accessories.

Successfully used for decades in one-off and small-batch production, craft workshops and industry, apprenticeships and vocational training, in tool making and jig manufacture.

  • Distance between centres 650 mm
  • Centre height 160 mm
  • Automatic handwheel release
  • Lead screw and feed rod cover
  • Holding brake
  • Toolmakers accuracy in accordance with DIN 8605
  • Infinitely variable speed control with maintenance-free three-phase asynchronous motor
  • Speed regulated frequency converter with actual value feedback
  • The speed can be infinitely and precisely optimised during machining
  • Optimum cutting conditions for fast machining of extremely fine surface structures
  • The digital readout (option) provides a high level of user-friendliness when working with constant
  • cutting speeds, freely selectable speed limitation, oriented main spindle stop
  • LED machine lights
