Just a general question to CNC turning users out there... Our business is growing and I have started researching the various turning centers on the market. I am looking for 2-spindle 2 turret machines with a 2~2.5" bar capacity, around 20hp or more on both spindles. Question is - which ones perfom well over the long haul? We have brand new Emco Hyperturns, but they seem to have durability issues. The old Mazak Multilplex machines we have leak, but seem to stay running better than our brand new Emcos. So who makes a machine that I can count on for years of reliable service?
