Colchester Triumph VS2500 centre lathe

600 UK recently unveiled a range of new products at a special 3 day Open House event from 2 to 4 June 2015. Visitors were also invited to tour 600 UK’s manufacturing facility that was significantly reconfigured and modernised through a £750,000 investment project completed last year.

Included in the raft of new product offerings are exciting additions to the Colchester and Harrison lathe ranges, Pratt Burnerd International workholding and the introduction of the hugely successful North American Clausing range of machine tools to the European market for the first time.


Chief among the many new product launches are brand new designs of the ‘market benchmark’ variable speed centre lathes – the Colchester Master and Triumph VS series that now incorporate a newly introduced ergonomic design to give customers even greater value in the training and subcontract workshop environment.

Addtionally, there is the re-launch of the updated Harrison M390 geared head version of this ever-popular centre lathe, giving highly accurate cutting performance and productivity with minimum set-up times.

The Colchester Triumph VS2500 is a 400mm swing lathe with a 7.5kW electronically, infinitely variable speed spindle drive giving a maximum speed of 2500rpm. The combination of constant surface speed and the electronically variable spindle drive gives the Triumph VS2500 manual lathe a cutting performance better than many CNC lathes, says the company.

Precision, power and durability together with a host of innovative features are built in to give years of lasting performance from this rugged conventional lathe.

The high specification of the Triumph VS2500 centre lathe makes it ideal for most toolroom, maintenance and production applications.
