This slant bed lathe is designed for both single-piece and series production.
Chip evacuation is optimized through the integrated conveyor. The automatic turret enhances productivity by enabling rapid tool changes and machining of complex parts requiring multiple tools.
The ID-MAX 500 L stands out for its compact design, which allows it to be easily integrated into any workshop.

Made in France

Our ID-MAX 500 L slant bed lathe is conceptualized and assembled in our workshop located in France by our team of machine tool experts.

Technology & Operator

Our software has been developed by turners, for turners, with simplicity, ergonomics, and productivity as guiding principles.

Support & training

As CAZENEUVE is synonymous with proximity to its customers, we are committed to addressing your needs before, during, and after the installation of your machine, by offering certified training sessions.

Integrated safety

Highly committed to user safety, CAZENEUVE enforces an enhanced safety protocol on its machines from the very design stage. Compliance with the 2006/42/EC standard is ensured.

Manufactured with a one-piece cast iron structure, the ID-MAX 500 L features linear ball guideways. This type of guideway ensures smoother and more precise movement while requiring less maintenance. Additionally, they can withstand significant cutting forces and effectively absorb vibrations, thereby improving tool life and machining quality.

Thanks to the four-guideway bed design, the movements of the X and Z carriage are not limited by the position of the tailstock, thus reducing the risk of collisions.

Electrical cabinet & SAFETY function

The easily accessible electrical cabinet of the ID-MAX 500 L slant bed lathes is composed of multiple SIEMENS components to ensure the machine’s longevity. The “SAFETY” function is integrated by default to provide optimal protection for operators.

New Optimax³ interface

Resulting from an extensive R&D process focused on ergonomics, productivity, and safety, CAZENEUVE has reinvented the concept of modern traditional turning: simple and effective!

Features include:

  1. Modern and user-friendly console ergonomics, with a large multi-touch screen.
  2. 3D graphical simulation with time calculation before and during machining.
  3. Quick and intuitive familiarization.
  4. Reduced setup time.
  5. Safety zone management.
  6. Maintenance table with follow-up reminders.
  7. Energy consumption analysis.
  8. PC simulator.
  9. Remote maintenance.

Offering three machining possibilities:

  1. Manual machining with open door.
  2. Automatic machining with pre-defined simple cycles (turning and milling) and specific CAZENEUVE functionalities.
  3. Machining of a range in conversational program.
