The Nexturn Swiss lathe line fits into Flint’s existing offerings of advanced metalworking solutions and services for production machining, mold/die machining, and production turning. According to Regional Manager Alex Churbock, it was an easy decision to adopt the Nexturn line because of the manufacturer’s support, quality, delivery, and price. The Nexturn Swiss line includes basic guide-bushing-equipped centers (maximum bar diameter capacities from 12mm to 38mm), removable guide-bushing centers (maximum diameter bar capacities from 20mm to 38mm), non-guide-bushing centers (maximum bar diameter capacities from 26mm to 51mm), and turret style non-guide-bushing sliding headstock centers for 45mm, 56mm, and 67mm diameter bars. They range from the B Series, which work on seven axes with 22 tools, to the XIII and NST Series, both of which work on 11 axes and with three-channel programming.
Flint has sold Swiss machines for more than 40 years and has been a distribution partner with Absolute Machine Tools in Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, North Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia since February 2011. Headquartered in Snellville, Georgia, Flint’s operation features application engineering and service departments stocked with CNC centers that can be used for demonstrations and training. They serve the aerospace, automotive, medical, agricultural and energy industries.
Flint and Absolute are looking forward to working together to supply Nexturn Swiss lathes to the Southeast region of the U.S.
“The support we receive from Absolute is second to none,” said Steve Flint, President of Flint Machine Tools. “The machines Absolute represents are the best in the market.”
