FESTO CNC Light Duty Lathe (5300)

The CNC Lathe System (Light Duty), Model 5300, provides training in computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) with a microprocessor-driven CNC Lathe (Light Duty). 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.
