FTL400 Features

Lathe Machine
Heavy Castings w/Cast Base Uniquely designed mono-block machine base and lathe bed casting is highly rigid and weighs over 2 tons. Very high weight-to-work cube ratio that assures very high rigidity, even when taking heavy cuts.
Full Enclosure w/ Safety Features Machine is completely enclosed with two sliding front access doors to allow full access for large set-ups. Also has easy access panels on tailstock end, and machine back side. Electromagnetic lock keeps operator safe.
2.44” Spindle Bore Generous spindle bore allows for pass through of large diameter stock. Easy access for optional pneumatic or hydraulic chuck.
Center Mounted Ball Screw/Way Covers Eliminates torque on the ball screw - Improving dynamic properties of the machine and increasing component life. Stainless steel way covers easily cover the ways and ball screw.  Provides much better protection to the ball screw, compared to traditional design.
Manual 8” 3-Jaw Chuck With American Standard A2-6 spindle nose chuck mount. Manual 8” 3-Jaw scroll chuck is standard option - Adaptable for pneumatic chuck or 5C collet holders.
4-Turret Tool Post Electric indexing tool post allows for convenient tooling changes using lower cost standard size tooling. Useful in small part run operations, machine shops and prototyping.
Extra Tool Gang Plate Located directly behind the turret tool post, this BONUS gang plate allows for additional tooling set-ups. You're not limited to the tooling you can fit in the 4-tool turret tool post.
Tool Box and Tools A set of the basic tools required for maintenance are included with this lathe. Gives you what you need to get up and running, and for routine maintenance.
Heavy Duty Manual Tail Stock In-Line heavy-duty tailstock operates efficiently and accurately.  With over 17” of travel on the tail stock and 4” of quill travel, this manual tail stock expands machine capabilities.
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
7.5 HP Servo Spindle Drive Plenty of power to match the machine’s capacity. PLUS, rigid tapping and spindle positioning capabilities.
50-3000 Spindle Speed Range Servo driven spindle provides rapid speed changes, from 50 to 3000 RPMs in a single speed range. No need for changing gears or belts. Constant torque rise, even at low RPM are assured with the servo drive.
800 IPM Feed Rates Faster speeds equals higher production rates. The Siemens industrial control, axis servo drive system and linear ways provide the power and control that allows for higher speeds.
Schneider Electrical Components One reason we can offer an 18 month machine warranty is because of the recognized quality and reliability of Schneider Electrical components. Highest reliability rating - highly efficient design reduces power usage.
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, feeding and cutting speeds may 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, waterproof, and resistant to both cooling and lubricants. It is also resitant to impacts and vibrations. 
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 ensure 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, while having a vibration free operation.
Ideal for CNC Beginners Ideal for entry level CNC users, the innovative integrative startGUIDE 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.
