Dueti Duel Purpose CNC Machining for Education and Training

Code: BDueti

A unique dual purpose CNC training machine specifically designed for educational needs.

The Boxford Dueti is a unique machine tool that is both a CNC lathe and a CNC milling machine. Now trainers can invest in the latest technology and obtain two state-of-the-art machines for the price of one.Critical components of the machine are moulded from the latest advanced composite materials, giving high strength, rigidity and precision.

Operating on IBM/100% compatible computers, the inclusive user-friendly software has routines for Computer Aided Design [CAD] at varying levels and will process the drawings through to a full machining routine. Seamless links to 3rd Party CAD/CAM systems are also provided.These features and many more establish the Boxford Duet as the world’s most versatile CNC training machine.

CNC Features

  • The Boxford software is an integrated suite of powerful CAD/CAM tools.
  • The CAD includes the handling of most text fonts with excellent manipulation routines.
  • Drawings from other CAD applications can also be imported and processed.
  • A full 3D simulation of the manufacturing process, including a cycle time, can be shown enabling work to be proven without the need for trial cutting.
  • Manual Data Input allows programs to be entered using world standard industrial G & M codes.
  • As with all Boxford PC machines, the DUET incorporates hardware capable of continuous 3 axis movement and utilises Continuous Path Manufacture allowing large programs, imported from Major CAD/CAM packages, to be machined extremely efficiently. This is particularly useful for Rapid Prototyping of 3D reliefs.
  • Touch sensitive control panel incorporating illuminated push buttons allows the machine to be operated without a computer.
  • Active and accurate tool path graphics continuously displayed line by line during program simulate, write, and manufacture.


  • Slant-bed configuration in lathe mode.
  • 6 Position programmable turning tool changer.
  • 4 Position programmable drilling/boring tool-changer.
  • Programmable lathe spindle speeds in RPM, M/min or in/min.
  • Programmable lathe feedrates in mm/min, in/min, mm/rev or in/rev.
  • 80 mm diameter 3 jaw chuck. Quick change vice for mill work holding.
  • Three axis simultaneous operation in milling mode.
  • Homing switches fitted to all axes facilitating automatic setup in manufacture.
  • Fully enclosed see through guarding for safety and improved viewing.
  • Standard Low Volt Light.
  • Lathe and Mill Tooling Starter Pack Included.
  • Unique conversion from Lathe to Milling machine in less than one minute.
