Perfect for industries requiring heavy metal removal, the MEGA TURN 500 turning center brings powerful performance and high productivity to large-part production. In fact, we designed this turning center to provide the fastest spindle speed (3,000 rpm) and rapid traverse rates (1,181 ipm) in its class.

The MEGA TURN 500 employs a high-torque integral spindle/motor and high-rigidity drum turret to easily tackle workpieces with maximum machining diameters of 19.69" and heights of 18.19", depending on chuck specifications. The standard chuck size for this machine is 12", with 15" and 18" options available.
