8-STATION AUTOMATIC TURRET

The Fryer auto turret is perfect for both manual and automatic operation. By pressing the Next Tool button you can manually index the turret or use the Previous Tool button to index the opposite direction. The turret uses standard ‘stick’ tooling so no special holders are required. Use ¾” tooling on the ET-18 and 1” tooling on the ET-21/25. Also included is ‘Coolant Thru Turret” which can feed hollow drills and other tools.


 

 

 

 


 

LIVE TOOL AUTOMATIC TURRET

Only Fryer offers live tooling on a toolroom lathe. This unique option allows milling and drilling on the ID or OD of your part. Forget moving the part to a 4th axis on a mill. With Fryer you can do all these operations with one set-up. Fryer also includes true ‘C’ axis contouring that allows pockets, engraving, hex milling and more. All of this can be done right at the machine using the standard conversational programing.




 

 

 

 

4-POSITION TOOL POST

The Fryer 4 position tool post features both manual and automatic operation. By pressing the Next Tool button you can manually index the tool post or use the Previous Tool button to index the opposite direction. The tool post uses standard ‘stick’ tooling so no special holders are required. Uses 1” tooling and is only available on ET-21/25.



 

 

 

5C AUTOMATIC COLLET CHUCK

The 5C collet chuck uses industry standard collets with a range of .062”-1.125”. You can operate manually with the standard foot pedal or let the CNC take over and open and close automatically. Combine with a simple turret mounted bar puller and you have ‘lights out’ machining of your parts.
