In Berkoa we celebrate the success of the TD2-1000 Vertical Lathe, now at full capacity, this latest milestone marks the delivery of the fourth vertical lathe for a multinational company that is a world reference in the manufacture of agricultural machinery on all continents.

The continuous choice of this multinational reflects the confidence in the quality of our machines. At Berkoa, our aim is to improve productivity and quality in production processes without neglecting our constant commitment to provide solutions that adapt to the specific needs of each customer.

The TD2-1000 is distinguished from its predecessors by its power and turning capacity, now reaching Ø1000 compared to the Ø800 of previous models.
