The TRAUB TNA line has an excellent reputation around the world when it comes to the machining of large chuck, shaft, and bar workpieces. Through precision, efficiency, short cycle times, and ease of use, these machines have set a new standard in their class. Starting with the standard equipment the machines can be tailored to suit any particular requirement - be it prototype production, small and medium series production, or for use in a production line
The TRAUB TNC line is intended for the economical complete machining of complex parts on a single machine. Turning and milling operations, as well as the implementation of other machining processes such as polygon turning, profile and flat milling, the production of special threads or the integration of laser machining, demonstrate the possibilities of this product line. It is available with different levels of equipment, with one or two tool carriers, and with or without counter spindle – you pay only for what you need.
