FESTO CNC Lathe Training System (5500)

This heavy-duty CNC Lathe System, provides training in computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), using an industrial-grade microprocessor-driven CNC lathe.

The system allows students to practice computer numerical controlled (CNC) code programming and editing, learn to operate lathe components, controls, and tools, set a programmed reference zero, follow the steps necessary to turn a specified part, and apply the machine code language to current lathe technology.
