Built around the proven spindle design and gripping on the taper of a 5C collet, with the correct work holding solution, a guaranteed circular accuracy (TIR) of up to 0.00125mm (50 millionths inch) is achievable.

The spindle design provides both collet and chuck ready without the need for any spindle adaptors. Offering such a highly accurate TIR, the collet sits directly in the spindle of the Cyclematic machine. This provides the minimum of excessive overhang from the machine's spindle headstock bearings ensuring up to 0.00125mm circular accuracy.

  • The ultimate in maximum spindle rigidity with a high percentage of the collet gripping the workpiece.
  • The least amount of spindle deflection as a result of the collet being located so close to the spindle bearings.
  • Wide range headstock with upto 4000rpm available on the collet (3000rpm with 3 jaw chuck).
  • Outstanding surface finish and high accuracy of machined components.


Extensive range of machine options for work and tool holding:

Step Chuck Collets

Step Chuck Collets: Step Chuck collets allow for components of up to 127mm to be clamped and machined for increased machining accuracy. Also available in 'Extra depth' style collets.


6 Station Turret for lathe

Six Station Turret:
The turret tool holder diameter16mm slide travel 9mm.

Automatic Indexing Turret

Automatic Indexing Turret:
The square turret is applied directly to the tool post
T-slot of the compound slide. The turret takes standard 10mm square shank tooling. By a simple movement of the ball-handled lever, the turret is automatically unlocked, indexed to the next tool position, and relocked, ready for the next machining operation.
