About the company
FAS Machine Tools has for some twenty years been on a quest to produce cost-effective production lathes.
CEO and Chief Designer Peter Frow has used innovative design approaches to minimize the key parameters of Cycle Time, Setup Time and Capital Cost.
The Faslathe was the first machine produced by the company and uses an electromechanical approach but incorporates a number of novel features to achieve dramatically shorter setup times while maintaining optimal cycle times. It is suited to making a wide range of components of 40 mm or less having not more than one thread.
The Synchroturn is a multislide CNC lathe capable of making simple or complex components at high speed. Like the Faslathe it achieves its fast cycle times by having several tools working simultaneously on the workpiece
Both these models achieve the company objectives of providing users with production lathes that save time and money.
