Lathes from Willi SEIGER GmbH have a long and successful history. The company's expertise dates back to 1891, when Flesch & Stein was founded in Frankfurt am Main. This eventually led to the formation in 1984 of Willi SEIGER GmbH, which has grown continuously ever since, thanks to the development of new model series. In unveiling the SLZ 420K lathe at EMO Hannover 2019, the company claims to be entering a new dimension in conventional lathes.
According to SEIGER, what makes the new conventional SLZ 420K lathe so innovative is its simplicity - tried-and-tested mechanics, minimal electronics, no intelligent controls at all and merely a digital display. The emphasis is on manual handling, with only very limited digital assistance that simply helps provide an overview and perform minimal functions. And yet the SLZ 400K is designed to do everything that is expected of a conventional lathe, which is why it seems perfect for experienced specialists and trainees alike. It can be used for making individual components, repairing parts and - in the training sector - demonstrating course content relating to the production process.
