DMG has launched the CTX Ecoline range of turning machines that incorporate a range of new features. These include high-tech digital drives and the highly-stable linear roller guideways in all axes, which deliver optimum speed and dynamics even when completing complex procedures.

Other features include a highly-dynamic spindle drive with continuously-adjustable rotation speed, hollow clamping cylinders with 51/76mm bar capacity, and a threejaw hydraulic chuck. CNC control is delivered via the Siemens 840D Solutionline control interface, which is accessed using a swivel-mounted and scratch-resistant slimline control panel.

Additionally, the CTX range now features larger safety glass panels, which allow operators to more clearly view the on-going process. This is further enhanced by the PLANONlight LED technology.
