You guys know of any companies that manufacture SMALL CNC Lathes?
I'm thinking in the 4-5 inch chuck range. Maybe a 24" bed. 6 station toolchanger?
I've tried searching the web, but haven't found anything on the small side.
I'm swamped with work on my manual lathe, need to upgrade to CNC.

Haas makes a little machine, basically a Hardinge HLVH with a CNC control on it. No changer I believe.
Mori makes some smaller CNC lathes like the SL-0
You might be able to find a used Hercus like mine:

Haas has the Office Lathe (OL-1). It is one of the smallest ones I guess. Yes, includes a tool changer.
Then EMCO (Austria) has small CNC-lathes.

Proxxon makes a small CNC lathe, the PD 400 CNC. It's metric.

Wabeco is another brand of small CNC lathes to check out. They're German, I think.
