CQ Series...The Best of Both Worlds
Machines has combined the world of standard production lathes with
the world of custom-built, multi-tooled lathes, into a single machine capable of performing
complex operations without sacrificing precision machining or setup times.
Seneca Falls® Machines Group is one of America's oldest builders of rugged production lathes. The Model LR, AR and 400 set the standard by which the rest of the industry was measured. The latest in this line is the Model "CQ" custom built multi-tool production lathe.
The principle of having many tools cutting at one time has never lost its effectiveness. Although with the advent of the just-in-time philosophy, machining time is frequently sacrificed for the sake of shorter setup times.
Now the Model "CQ" offers many of the features that come with the two and four axis standard lathe, while maintaining the superior machining characteristics of the multi-tool lathe. Servo driven multi-axis tool slides, variable spindle speeds, constant surface footage, CNC or PLC controls -- all these contribute to the making of a state-of-the-art range of multi-tooled production lathes.
