Techservice – CMT

Lathes manufacturing since 1938

A factory of well-established and proven experience.

CMT is a factory renowned for its reliability and among the very few in the world producing a whole horizontal lathe catalogue. Each product it offers is designed to provide the highest degree of quality, efficiency and precision possible.

A range of machine tools including traditional flat beds and teach-ins, well-known worldwide with the prestigious URSUS brand.

The direct management of the production process and the thorough component control ensure full compliance with the highest quality standards.

The service doesn’t end with the sale. It goes on after the lathe’s installation, which is carried out by specialized CMT Techservice personnel, and the original spare parts availability gives continuity over time in terms of performances. 

A close relationship with the customer combined with an experience gained over 80 years of activity allow CMT to offer three product lines:

traditional lathes,

teach-in lathes,

NC lathes,

with different specifications based on the particular requests of our clients.
