In 2013 Chevalier expanded its market share in China, with the completion of its Suzhou factory.
”The company offers a CNC conversational control system which, along with the factory pre-programmed canned cycles, allows the operator to use the machine even with minimum programming experience.
The integration of Chevalier’s Smart III control system in its new line of double column grinders means having heavy duty CNC creep feed and profile machines that feature automatic wheel dressing with compensation”, the official website of the company states.
Chevalier carries a wide variety of lathes to meet different industry applications: 18”-40” teach-in type CNC flatbed models; slant bed lathes with box & linear ways; vertical turning lathes with 8”-24” chucks; sub-spindle lathes and 1.25/1.6/2-meter vertical turning center available with programmable Y-axis.
Chevalier milling machines are made in the same facility as the company’s grinders. The hardened and hand-scraped ground box ways feature heat-treated Meehanite cast iron castings with a heavily ribbed frame construction. The machines provide wider work and access areas for easy loading and unloading of workpieces.
