The World's Most Cost-Effective Turning Machines

Buying a used OmniTurn?
We're here to help you get up and running safely!

Because factory-installed safety equipment may be missing or defective on used machinery, please inspect your used machine carefully to see that all safety equipment is properly installed and operational before you begin making parts.

Here's what to look for:



Palm Box on GT-Jr

PALM BOX

1. Verify that the dual palm-button operator's station is installed and functional: cycle should not start unless both palm-buttons on operator's station are fully depressed.
Palm Box: 998-00-000, $395
G3 CNC

ONE CYCLE START

2. Early CNC's had one cycle-start button on front-panel: pressing this button should NOT start the cycle (it is only used for bench-testing). The dual palm-button operator's station (Palm Box) must be used to start cycle.
G4 CNC

TWO CYCLE STARTS

3. Current CNC's have two cycle-start buttons on front-panel: cycle should not start unless BOTH cycle-start buttons are fully depressed.
GT75 Door

SLIDING DOOR

4. The sliding door on front of GT-75 is interlocked: cycle will not start if door is open; if door is opened during cycle, cycle will stop.
To quickly verify interlock: Apply power to the machine and set servos on. If interlock is operative, on current CNC the red Motion Stop lamp will light with door open; on early CNC the Spindle Fault lamp (on spindle cabinet) will light with door open. These lamps are not lit with door closed.
Door Interlock Switch Kit: 691-09-100, $125
GT-Jr Splash Guard

SPLASH GUARD

5. The splash-guard on GT-Jr is interlocked: cycle will not start if guard is lifted; if lifted during cycle, cycle will stop.
To quickly verify interlock: Apply power to the machine and set servos on. If interlock is operative, on current CNC the red Motion Stop lamp will light with guard lifted; on early CNC the Spindle Fault lamp (on spindle cabinet) will light with door open. These lamps are not lit with guard in place.
GT-Jr Splash Guard: 593-11-001, $85
GT-Jr Splash Guard Interlock Switch Kit: 593-09-100, $150
GT-Jr Hatch

ACCESS HATCH

6. The motor-compartment access hatch on GT-Jr is interlocked: cycle will not start if hatch is open; if hatch is opened during cycle, cycle will stop.
To quickly verify interlock: Apply power to the machine and set servos on. If interlock is operative, on current CNC the red Motion Stop lamp will light with hatch open; on early CNC the Spindle Fault lamp (on spindle cabinet) will light with door open. These lamps are not lit with hatch closed.
Hatch Interlock Switch Kit: 691-09-100, $125

Before buying a used Omniturn GT series machine or attachment from any dealer or end user, contact the Omniturn factory at 541-332-7004 or sales@omniturn.com. By supplying serial numbers, you can get the machine history and talk to a knowledgeable technician.

That is the way to achieve the safety, speed, accuracy, and reliablity that OmniTurn is known for.
