The teach-in lathes range is conceived to ease and optimize the work’s capacity of the traditional single pulley lathes operators in the machining of small and medial series of pieces.

With the teach-in lathes “TORGIM TL” range the operator is able, through the use of electronic handwheels, other hand controls and a control unity, whether to execute manual conventional turnings with visualized quotas and continuous selection of feeds or to carry out complex works following the driven programming and simple graphic editor.
A teach-in lathe is a versatile machine, it can work both in self teaching and in CNC with CAD/CAM; it’s possible to program and to work pieces as for a CNC machine but with very low time for tooling, they are similat to conventional lathes ( manual self centering chuck, simple tailstock).
It’s a perfect machine for lots of 3 and more pieces, it’s very comfortable to make single pieces because programming is very easy.
Once you have obtained the working program it is possible to verify it with a graphic cycle check. To carry out more complex operations it is also possible to work in CNC modality with standard ISO language. The filing of programs into a peripherial unit is given through a RS232 transfer unit, memory card or USB key.
