PRODUCT INFO

 

5 HP Servo Spindle

Extended Gang Table - 14" X Axis Travel

The FL300 flat bed CNC gang tool lathe packs a load of capacity into a small foot print.  The most unique feature of the FL300 flat bed CNC gang tool Lathe is the extended work table/gang plate with 14" of cross-feed travel.  This provides plenty of capacity to mount and position a large number of seperate gang blocks with tools.  It also works great for applications that require live tooling.

As with all AutoMate CNC machines, the FL300 flat bed CNC gang tool lathe has a closed loop system with servo motors and drives - allowing for rigid tapping and other spindle positioning operations.

The FL300 features quality components that give the FL300 flat bed CNC gang tool lathe similar speeds and precision capabilities of our more expensive CNC lathes.  Quality component providers include Schneider electronics, PMI ball screws and Hiwin linear guides.

The industrial grade Siemens 808D CNC Control adds production grade capacity to your small parts production - while offering conversation programming capabilities and a full menu of programming help guides and tips.

Great capabilities at a very reasonable price - a true value in CNC turning machines.


OVERVIEW

Flat Bed CNC Gang Tool Lathe

Extra Long Gang Tool Table / 14" Cross-Feed Travel

The FL300 offers the optimum combination of value price, accuracy, speed and production capacity. This lathe is the the factory's most popular model. Why? It's fast, powerful and has a lot of capacity - It offers the most bang for the buck!

The extra long table and 14" X axis travel is industry best for tooling capacity.  Rapid feed rates of up to 1000 IPM are possible with world-class quality ball screws and linear ways.

A pneumatic collet system with foot actuator, ergonomic control, and digital handwheel are a few of the features that make this low cost gang tool lathe one of the best deals for volume production CNC lathes.

Designed for low cost and volume production applications, this lathe is also used widely in education, machine shops, home shops and second operation settings.

     FEATURES

     

    Lathe Machine
    Extra Large Table and Long X Axis Large work table and a long X axis stroke allows for a large number of gang tool blocks, plus live tooling.  Offers more flexibility and variation in tooling and turning set-ups.  Many live tooling options available.
    Heavy Castings with Cast Base Compact, rigid machine design  - weighing over 2600 lbs. High weight-to-work cube ratio assures high rigidity, even when taking heavy cuts.
    Full Enclosure Machine is completely enclosed with a sliding front access door and easy access panels on the tailstock end and machine back side. Coolant and chips are enclosed and properly recycled. Electromagnetic lock keeps operator safe.
    1.46” Spindle Bore Easy access for standard pneumatic collet system. Optional hydrualic system, and collet system available. Adaptable for automatic bar feeder, and live tooling.
    Gang Tool Plate A nice set of tool holders is included with this lathe tool pack. Gang tool turning is the fastest, simplest, and most economical of turning methods. Generally limited to smaller diameter part material - less than 2”.
    Pneumatic Collet Closer with Auxiliary Start Button, Foot Actuator or at the Control Collet system is air actuated with auxiliary start button - within easy reach of operator. Improves efficiency and safety for the operator.
    Tool Box and Tools A set of the basic tools required for maintenance are included with this late. Gives you what you need to get up and running and for routine maintenance.
    Foundation Pads Heavy machined leveling pads that adjust the height to keep your machine aligned and balanced. Solid multi-point contact with shop floor reduces vibrations and increases accuracy.
    Drive System
    4 HP Spindle Drive Plenty of power to match the machine’s capacity. Capable of rigid tapping and spindle positioning.
    50-3000 Spindle Speed Range Infinitely variable speed ranges, from 50 to 3000 RPMs. No need for changing gears or belts.
    Schneider Electrical Components One reason we can offer an 18 month machine warranty is because of the recognized quality, and reliabilty of Schneider Electrical components. Highest reliability rating - highy efficient design reduces power usage.
    High Quality Hiwin Linear Guideways w/Telescoping Covers World-class standard linear motion guideways come standard on the FL300. Stainless steel telescoping guards provide maximum protection of guideways from chips and coolant.
    PMI Ball Screws PMI ball screws efficiently transmit rotary motion to linear motion - allowing for high speed, and highly accurate axis movements. Accurate ball circle diameters throughout the length of ball screw assures consistent drag torque and low noise.
    Feed Rates of 600 on X and Y Axes Faster speeds equals higher production rates. The combination of Siemens industrial control, servo driven system and linear guideways provides power and control that allows for higher speeds on this machine - many times faster then competitive CNC Lathe systems.
    Safety/Operation
    Ergonomic Control Panel and Operator Interface Machine control panel adjusts and rotates up to 90 degrees. High tactile buttons, manual pulse generator, and convenient cycle start buttons improve operator convenience, efficiency, and safety.
    Auxiliary Cycle Start Easy access buttons allow operator to operate pneumatic or hydraulic chuck with the push of a button. Having a second E-Stop within easy reach also adds to the safety features of this lathe.
    Manual Pulse Generator Handheld pendant that allows operator to be independent from the main control panel. The rotating knob generates pulses that are sent to the machine control, allowing the operator to move the lathe a predetermined distance with each click of the knob detent.
    Automatic Lubrication System Lubricates all wear points during machine operation at continuous time intervals. Benefits include reduced labor and material costs, and significant extension of bearing life.
    Programmable Coolant System Control coolant flow at the control panel using standard M-Codes. Cycle times can be significantly reduced, while feed and cutting speeds can be significantly increased. Proper cooling extends life of cutting tools.
    Work Light Focused lighting elements increase operator efficiency and reduce fatigue. This light is flicker resistant - also waterproof, resistant to cooling and lubricants. Impact and vibration resistant.
    Tri-Color Alarm Light Green light turns red when control alarm recognizes a machining error, or machine malfunction. An operator standing away from the machine is visually alerted by the activated alarm light when machining cycle is finished or machine errors out.
    Siemens 808D CNC Control
    Closed Loop System System directly monitors motor position and velocity in real time. The system then automatically makes corrections to assure correct tool positioning. High accuracy and maximum parts quality ensures a minimal rejection rate. Also assures smoother surface finishes.
    Siemens Servos and Drives Achieves rapid acceleration and higher speeds - maintains high torque throughout speed range. Motor is highly efficient - and it stays cool. Quiet at high speeds, with vibration free operation.
    Ideal for CNC Beginners Ideal for entry level CNC users, the innovative, integrative start-GUIDE from Siemens provides an on-line digital help function on every screen. Helpful instructions are available anytime - at a push of a button.
    Simple & Intuitive Interface Well designed conversational programming functions and Wizards from Siemens help streamline programming at the control panel. All Siemens 808D controls come standard with this SINUMERIK Operate BASIC functionality.
    Compact and Robust Industrial panel design with hardened features is ideal for harsh environments. Small compact design matches smaller machines tools like the AutoMate CNC line.
    USB Connector - Easily Handles Large Files This unique Siemens function allows for the streaming of large program files direct from a USB. Large files are no longer a concern - other CNC systems lack this robust level of functionality.
    Built-In Helps Several Siemens provided “assists” help streamline programming functions. One example would be Hot Keys. With the Hot Key function, machine operators can easily access commonly used screens using operator defined hot keys.
