Do Lathe Operations on the Bed of Your Mill

RapidTurn from Tormach securely positions parts in 15 deg increments for secondary work on the primary spindle of the mill, which is ideal for cutting wrench flats or drilling cross holes on turned parts without additional setups.

The RapidTurn CNC chucker lathe attachment is designed for use with Tormach PCNC 1100 or PCNC 770 mills. The lathe attachment is powered by PathPilot, an approachable yet professional-level CNC machine control system which is easy-to-use, easy-to-operate, and designed for CNC machinists of all experience levels. This space-saving utility provides real CNC lathe functionality without taking up precious shop floor space.
