Sliding head lathes

Our sliding headstock lathes from TRAUB offer exceptional precision and accuracy in the machining of long, slim parts. With their ease of set-up, programming and maintenance, TRAUB sliding head lathes allow you to achieve excellent levels of productivity and economy. A variety of model variants are offered including ‘P’ designation models featuring the TRAUB TX8i-p control system, ‘9’ designation models with enhanced kinematics in the form of a counter spindle mounted on an X/Z cross slide, and ‘7B’ models featuring an additional B axis that enables the production of highly complex parts and complicated contour elements that require additional operations such as milling, drilling, angular drilling or thread milling.

  • TNL12

    - Simultaneous and independent working of up to 4 tool carriers for highly productive machining in one clamping
