  • World Class Lathes

    What does it mean to be world class? It means total package engineering; precision, durability and safety that far exceed market standards. It's the ability to identify the evolving needs of a demanding environment and design machines that surpass those needs. That's world class.

    THE NEXT GENERATION
    OF LATHES IS JET ELITE
    The next generation takes the best of the old, and adapts to move forward. JET Elite represents the most precise, most durable, and safest metalworking machinery. Each of these machines puts a stake in the ground, signaling a new standard of excellence.

    ELITE HEADSTOCK
    BUILT FOR DURABILITY
    Totally Enclosed
    Headstock

    Totally enclosed headstock, gearbox
    and apron have an inner oil reservoir
    that continuously lubricates moving
    parts, reducing friction.
     
    Heat Treated And
    Ground Gears

    Heat treated and precision ground
    gears in the headstock reduce
    vibration and deflection.
     
    Universal Gearbox

    OVER FORTY INCHES
     
    LATHE ASSEMBLY
    BUILT FOR SAFETY
    CNC Style Lighting
    Splash guard mounted, energy efficient, low temperature, CNC style lighting provides a well-lit work area.
     
    Chuck guard
    All metal chuck guard features a sight window, and deflects chips and coolant from the operator or the assigned work area.
     
    Foot brake
    Full-length foot brake brings the spindle
    to a omplete stop at any RPM.
     
    CSA/CUS APPROVED Electrics
    For added safety, the motor and electrics of ELITE lathes follow strict guidelines and electrical requirements to be certified by CSA Group.
     
    LATHE ASSEMBLY
    BUILT FOR DURABILITY
    Jog Alignment
    Jog button rotates the spindle incrementally, which allows the gears to easily engage.
