TAL22 has a twin center spindle, the machine can clamp the middle section of a shaft or tube even though it might be as long as 2.5 meters. One center spindle is located on the rail, so the clamping position can easily be adjusted over a wide range. Also, one of turrets has been designed so that it can cross over the center spindle. This means the machine can turn with one center spindle and both turrets at the two ends. This design gives the machine excellent flexibility for turning a very wide range of parts with different lengths.
