SL6 Features

Lathe Machine
Mono-Block Cast Iron - True Slant Bed One piece cast iron foundation is a true 35 degree slant bed casting, providing a large mass in a small footprint. More mass means higher rigidity and better heat dissipation.  Resulting in higher precision and finer surface finishes.
Slant Bed Design A slant bed lathe allows for better chip flow. A slant bed lathe can handle a large volume of chips, while protecting the ways from chips and debris. The slant bed design also allows the operator closer access to the chuck and turret - resulting in easier and faster set-ups.
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.
1.89” Spindle Bore With A2-5 spindle nose. Generous bore size for easy pass through of large stock and easy access for optional pneumatic or hydraulic chuck. Adaptable for automatic bar feeder.
Manual 6” 3-Jaw Chuck With American Standard A2-5 spindle nose chuck mount. Manual 6” scroll chuck is a standard option - adaptable for pneumatic or hydraulic chuck.
8-Tool Precision Bi-Directional Turret World-class quality Pragati turret is precision machined and assembled to assure high speed and accurate tool changes. Bi-directional tool change capability also adds speed and efficiency to tool changes.  An additional advantage of turret lathes, considered by many, is that they tend to be easier and more logical to program, especially when cutting complex parts.
Tool Box and Tools A set of the basic tools required for maintenance are included with this lathe.  This gives you what you need to get up and running and for routine maintenance.
Foundation Pads Heavy, machined leveling pads adjust height to keep your machine aligned and balanced. Solid, multi-point contact with shop floor reduces vibration and increases accuracy.
Drive System
5 HP VFD Spindle Drive Plenty of power to match the machine’s capacity.  More power than comparably priced machines. Capable of rigid tapping and spindle positioning.
50-3000 Spindle Speed Range Infinitely variable speed changes, from 50 to 3000 RPMs in a single speed range. 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 reliability of Schneider Electrical components. Highest reliability rating - highly efficient design reduces power usage.
PMI Ball Screws World-class standard ball screws - efficiently transmit rotary motion to linear motion, allowing for high-speed, highly accurate axis movements. Accurate ball circle diameters throughout length of ball screw assures consistent drag torque and low noise.
Precision Hiwin Linear Guideways w/Telescoping Covers Quality Hiwin linear motion guideways come standard on the SL6. Stainless steel telescoping guards provide maximum protection of guideways from chips and coolant.
Feed Rates: 800 IPM on X / 1000 IPM on Y Adequate power, plus high-quality linear guides and ball screws allow transform this lathe into a high speed turning center. The Siemens industrial control and axis servo drive system provide the power and control that allows for higher speeds.  This lathe has operating and rapid feed rates that are many times faster than competitive systems.
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 and operator efficienty of this turning center.
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 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 - 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 ensure a minimal rejection rate. Also assures smoother surface finishes.
Siemens Servos and Drives Achieves rapid acceleration and higher speeds, while maintaining high torque throughout speed range. Motor is highly efficient - and it stays cool. Quiet at high speeds, and 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 machine tools like the AutoMateCNC 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.
