Willis installs 30120-6CNC Lathe in Mid South laboratory
A large laboratory in the Mid South was in need of a substantial size CNC lathe to replace their older manual machines. Being the main repair shop for the lab, they need to be prepared for anything that comes in their door.
After reviewing their needs and checking the market, they chose to go with the Willis 30120-6CNC Lathe. This 10’ center distance CNC lathe with 6” spindle bore allows them heavy capacity for their larger work that comes in while still allowing them higher spindle speeds for the smaller parts. It was also still small enough to be easy to operate and move around. And, it doesn’t take up too much floor space in their facility. The optional automatic 8 station vertical turret and chip conveyor gives them ability to machine large complicated parts with heavy metal removal in an unattended fashion.
