Manufactured by Costruzioni Meccaniche Tortona (C.M.T.) based at Corso Della Repubblica 74, 15057 Tortonia in Italy, a range of machines tools was offered including, during the 1970s, two heavily-built and useful general-purpose lathes the Ursus “52” and Ursus “105”. The two lathes shared the same bed, complete carriage assembly, tailstock and screwcutting gearbox, the only difference being the bore of their headstock spindles – the former with 52 and the latter 105 mm – together with the necessary changes to the headstock casting, bearings and range of spindle speeds.
Each model was offered with between-centres capacities of 1000, 1500, 2000, 2500 and 3000 mm and centre heights of 200 mm (though for the Ursus 52 only), 225 and 250 mm. A detachable gap bed was standard and, with the gap piece removed, diameters of, respectively, 610, 660 and 710 mm could be swung with workpieces up to 180 mm in thickness mounted on a faceplate.
