CNT-1100 Series Four-Axis Lathe Mill with Live Tooling

This unique machine design best illustrates CNT Motion's ability to provide automation solutions to boost throughput and create a fully autonomous state-of-the-art composite fabrication facility. This 4 axis CNC lathe mill machine was the centerpiece of a design that incorporated a CNC extractor feeding a CNC overhead auto-loader/unloader with part orientation and size identification, then feeding this lathe/mill unit, back to unloader and the, finally, to an out-feed conveyor.
