The Muratec MS series features single spindle CNC turning centers that can increase productivity while decreasing the overall cost of labor. Muratec single spindle machines are great job shop workhorses, or drop one into your production line for an additional operation. These machines are efficient and reliable and can increase productivity, while decreasing the overall cost of labor. Known for efficiency and reliability, these machines are oftentimes used for third operations and are frequently operated alongside one of the twin spindle turning centers from our MW Series.
The machines within the MW Series are twin-spindle turning centers that have been built with the latest technology for greater productivity. These self-contained machines are compact and give operators the flexibility they need to perform two simultaneous operations with guaranteed precision. Learn more about the various models within the MW Series, and find the machine that will give you the accuracy you need, efficiently. These are all important features that describe the MW Series automated turning machines. Muratec’s MW machines have become the backbone of automotive parts supplier’s production lines, and can be found in hundreds of job shops across North America. More automotive parts are turned on Muratec MW Series machines than any other lathe platform available.


The MD Series features CNC turning centers with live-tooling capabilities, including drilling and milling. These machines can perform both low- and high-volume tooling capabilities, combining multiple operations into a single machine. By improving efficiency and productivity, while reducing the costs of labor, the machines in the MD Series are compact and requires substantially less floor space than similar machines on the market.
Often referred to as ‘a job shop in a box,’ these machines can come equipped with up to 15 cutting tool stations per turret, with varying flexibility per model. Designed for complex part needs, the MT Series is ultra-versatile and increases productivity while reducing idle time.
The turning machines in the ML Series are specifically designed to turn longer shaft parts.

They are fully programmable and come equipped with the ability to turn parts of various sizes, depending on your needs. Unlike similar machines, they use a vertical bed and have stainless steel siding, which prevents machine overheating, as well as the risk of chip contamination.
