Put to bed   

600 UK has added extra capacity bed lengths to its successful heavyweight series of Harrison Alpha XS CNC combination lathes.

The heavy-duty Harrison Alpha 1660XS and 1760XS models were introduced in 2015 and specifically designed in response to increased customer demand for turning larger diameter components accurately, efficiently and more cost-effectively.

Both models are of cast iron construction, to give maximum stability and can be specified with centre distances from 1.5m up to 4m and now include both 5m and 6m configurations.

The Alpha 1660XS and 1760XS machines offer a high powered 18.5kW motor with 105mm spindle bores (1760XS model has an optional bore of 155mm), outputting a spindle speed of 2,000 and 1,400rpm respectively, which gives even more heavy-duty turning performance and accuracy for longer and larger diameter components.

The Alpha 1660XS and 1760XS models are fitted with the same Fanuc 0iTD/Harrison Alpha control system as the rest of the range which offers customers high levels of flexibility through the exclusive Harrison control, allowing four ways of working for the operator – from manual turning through to full CNC production incorporating Harrison’s own Alpha System, widely acknowledged as simple and intuitive for operators.

Mike Berry, 600 UK managing director comments: “Our Harrison Alpha combination lathe range is exceptional and we have listened to our many satisfied customers whose feedback demanded increased capacity whilst retaining the operator friendly, Alpha control flexibility. We are delighted to satisfy this demand for higher specification products and to extend the Alpha range with up to 6m bed lengths on this range.”
