Piper Tools is a 100% Australian owned machine tools specialist operating since 1937. The company has developed a broad range of lathe centres, tapping chucks and cutting tools and it is credited with the development of one of the world’s first lathe live centres.
The Piper B Series heavy duty lathe centres are intended for turning or machining pipes and tubes and are not recommended for machining heavy components.
The Piper A Series heavy duty lathe centres with adaptors are designed for pipe centres or similar applications. In cases when the workpieces are heavy, the centre hole in the workpieces must sit on the larger diameter of the cone. These lathe centres feature an adaptor nose and morse taper shank.
