OmniTurn Factory Floor
|OmniTurn® is the registered trade name for the CNC lathe products manufactured by NC Electronics, Inc.(NCE). NCE was established in Southern California in 1976 for the purpose of retrofitting older large
NC milling machinery to state-of-the-art CNC technology primarily focusing on the numerous aerospace industries in California|
This business evolved into converting smaller milling machines to CNC technology more affordable to smaller job shop businesses.
NCE was one of the first in the machine tool industry to develop lower cost CNC controls using the popular standard PC based computers as CNC controllers. This technology paved the way in 1987 to develop the bolt-on Omniturn attachment to convert manual Hardinge style chuckers to full blown CNC machines capable of high tolerance, high speed turning at an extremely affordable price.
|Thousands of these attachments have been sold throughout the world over the years, and have made many small shops as well as large corporations very competitive in the world
This product has been refined over time with more capability and remains in production today.
The attachment evolved into the development of the GT series of complete turning centers offering combination turning and milling capability and various kinds of automation.
These machines are found in virtually every industry such as aerospace, medical, appliance, jewelry, hydraulic, pneumatic, and fastener to name a few.
The Omniturn products continue to be the lowest cost, best supported, small turning equipment available in the world today, equalling or exceeding the capabilities of much more expensive equipment.
