CENTAURO | T-Star CNC Semi-Automatic Lathe

Flexible CNC Lathe for production of custom and repeat turnings for stair railings, chair & table legs, furniture, and more

The Centauro T-Star CNC Semi-Automatic Lathe is a competitively priced, semi-automatic copy lathe with CNC control suitable for producing a range of turned components.

The CNC control means that no sample or template is needed making it very simple and quick to set up and so ideal for short production runs and one of’s. As standard the machine has a 15″ color touch screen and OSAI controller featuring CT CAD software to easily create the profile to be turned.

There is also the possibility to install the CT CAD software on remote PC or laptop and transfer the data to the machine controller via USB stick. Features of the software include the possibility to program up to 10 working passes, multi cuts on specific parts of the turning or return cuts. As the X and Y axis (traverse speed / depth of cut) are NC controlled it is possible to achieve excellent quality and definition of the turned component in all types of materials. The machine is also equipped with 2 x mechanically operated dowel / tenon knives.

Over the past few years, pre-milling has grown in popularity. Pre-milling is the process of machining the edge of the panel prior to applying glue. It ensures optimal edge quality before the application of edge banding, resulting in reduced glue joints and a highly aesthetic edge.
