WEILER’s best-selling machine for high level training combines quality and versatility with straight-forward operation for all users. In common with all WEILER machines, risks during operation are minimised by taking all relevant safety aspects into account.

The smallest WEILER precision engine lathe is characterised by:

  • 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 500 mm
  • Centre height 140 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 numerical read-out VCD (option) offers a high level of operating convenience for working with constant cutting speed, freely selectable speed limitation, oriented main spindle stop
  • LED machine lights
