The TAIGTurn 4029 CNC Lathe is a top of the line desktop CNC lathe. It is a very rigid and precise machine that uses some of the most advanced techniques that allows it to produce parts that used to be done on machines that cost thousands of dollars more. With a rapid feed of up to 100 inches per minute you can go from tool to tool in just seconds. A key feature of the CNC Lathe is the ability to single point thread. This is accomplished using a “Digital Index Signal Processor” which was designed by Microproto Systems. The main frame consists of a 2 1/2 inch square steel tubing to provide a very solid feel. The leadscrews are all 1/2-20 or 12mm x 2.5mm Ball Screws unlike a lot of machines of similar size that use 1/4 inch leadscrews. The moving slides ride on Ground Steel Ways with full gib adjustments for wear as the years of use go by. Overall working accuracy should exceed .0005 with Leadscrews or .0002 with Ball Screws. All machines are sold with a 14 day refund and a full 2 year factory warranty on all Lathe components and accessories.
