Why choose Hager turning lathes instead of cheap imported products?

  • More than 45 years of experience building turning lathes
  • Continuous improvement
  • Innovative technology
  • Compatible with all accessory devices
  • Vast range of accessories
  • Compliance of the DIN Standard with dimensions in mm (no inch dimensions like import products from the Far East)
  • Entire production in Germany
  • Family-owned company
  • Price-quality ratio
  • High quality motor for continuous operation (S1)
  • High quality electronics (brand: Getriebebau NORD)
  • Precision (lathe bed, headstock alignment to tailstock, …)
  • Simple handling of operating equipment (eccentric lever operation)
  • Stable, thick-walled underframe in ergonomic, vibration-reducing inclined design
  • High-quality paint
  • High-quality surface protection of steel parts by high-quality browning
  • Adaption to existing turning lathes
  • Competent advice and quick service
  • Spare part guarantee and use of standard DIN parts

Disadvantage of cheap import products:

  • Precision of the spindle alignment (also when swinging back the headstock)
  • Precision of the lathe bed (tailstock is loose)
  • Adapter solutions – no direct thread M33DIN800 – therefore loss of stability and accuracy
  • Cheap motors, no continuous operation
  • Torque very low from the beginning – the machine can be stopped easily
  • Handling when turning headstock
  • Handling hand rest – corners and pinches with chips
  • Hand rest: high installation loss and low holding force of the hand rest clamps (for e.g. the use of broad hand rests or duplicators)
  • Short centre sleeve travel and often slight incline – drilling will take a long time
  • Special bearing in the headstock (no standard bearing)
  • Replacement parts from the Far East – long lead times
  • No extension opportunities
  • No special solutions
