Cincom A32

The World’s Fastest Swiss Type CNC Automatic Lathe

The A32 Type VII is a state-of-the-art Swiss Turning Center that is strong, powerful and rigid for exceptional cutting performance. With features such as a rapid feed rate of 45 m/min, high-speed processing with the latest NC unit and Citizen’s unique streamline control, it achieves 30% higher productivity than previous machines. This  32 mm machine, with its enhanced standard equipment package, provides a production-ready, value-for-the-money manufacturing solution.  

Improved Machine Rigidity

Total rigidity has increased by 30% in comparison to the construction of previous machines. This makes powerful cutting possible and achieves chatter-free and uniform machined surfaces. 

  • Updated bed design is more compact but the torsional rigidity has been considerably increased.
  • The built-in spindle configuration for the front and back spindle — designed for high rigidity — provides high accuracy, low noise, low energy and stable high-speed rotation.

User Friendly Operation

The user-friendly editing function which utilizes multi-line, multi-axes programming, along with superimposed and synchronized control, make setting up the most complex jobs easy.
