For an affordable option, we offer the Mini-Max (GT-30) and other models of gang tool lathes. Now available with Fanuc or GSK. Call for special introductory pricing. These machines are a versatile, flexible, and reliable addition to your company's manufacturing capabilities. They are ideal for dedicated production applications and we can add part catchers, chip conveyors, and autoloading systems to maximize the machines' usefulness. We have also developed post processors for the GSK controls in Autodesk’s Fusion 360 CAM software to solve the programming challenges involved with this type of 5-axis work.

The Mini-Max (GT-30) is a flatbed design gang lathe with a footprint of 52” long and 44” wide. This small footprint lathe has a servo C-axis spindle motor and can deliver rapid duty cycles. The electrical component suppliers provide the highest grade-hardened CNC controls and liquid-tight motor cables that are currently available for machine tool manufacturers. The GT-30 Mini Max is built with the highest quality Japanese ball screws and linear rails providing an extremely accurate machine. The machine is designed to be a high-production machine for small parts in high volumes. With the GT-30L and GT-30LG we have more travel and lower center heights so have room for live tools and the gantry loader that is on the GT-30LG model. We would love to discuss the requirements you have to determine the machine model best for your workflow.
