|High Precision 8-Station Indexing Turret
|Top quality Pragati turret is precision machined to assure high speed and accurate tool changes. Bi-directional indexing allows for higher efficiency and added speed tool changes.
|Heavy Castings with Cast Base
|Compact and very rigid machine design - weighing over 2600 lbs. High weight-to-work cube ratio assures higher precision results, even when taking heavy cuts.
|Heavy Duty Manual Tailstock
|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 the lathe machine's capabilities.
|Manual 6" 3-Jaw Chuck
|With American Standard A2-5 spindle nose chuck mount. Manual 6” 3-jaw scroll chuck is standard - adaptable for pneumatic chuck or 5C collet tool holders.
|Machine is completely enclosed with a sliding front access door and easily opened 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
|Easy access for standard pneumatic collet system. Optional hydraulic system, and 5C collet system available. Adaptable for an automatic bar feeder, and live tooling.
|Extra Long Gang Tool Plate
|Even with the addition of the Pragati turret mounted on the work table, there is still room to add gang tool blocks and live tooling for increased tooling options.
|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.
|Heavy machined leveling pads that adjust the height to keep your machine aligned and balanced. Solid multi-point contact with shop floor reduces vibration and increases accuracy.
|5.5 HP Spindle Drive
|Plenty of power to match the machine’s capacity. Has more power than comparable machines on the market. 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 reliability 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 length of ball screw assures consistent drag torque and low noise.
|Feed Rates: 1000 IPM on X Axis/600 IPM on Z Axis
|Faster speeds equals higher production rates. The Siemens industrial control, servo drives and precision linear guideways provide the power and control that allows for high speeds operations. This lathe has radid and feed rates that are several times faster then competitive CNC lathes.
|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 convenient operation 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 machine tool bearing life.
|Programmable Coolant System
|Control coolant flow at the control panel using standard M-Codes. Cycle times can be significantly reduced while increasing feed and cutting speeds. Proper cooling also helps extend life of cutting tools.
|Focused lighting elements increase operator efficiency and reduce fatigue. This light is flicker resistant - also waterproof, resistant to cooling fluid 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
|The system directly monitors motor position and velocity in real time. The system then automatically makes corrections to assure correct tool positioning. This assures high accuracy and maximum parts quality.
|Siemens Servos and Drives
|Servo driven motors achieve rapid acceleration - while maintaining high torque throughout speed range. Servos are highly efficient - while maintaining lower temperatures during extended operation. Quiet at high speeds and vibration free operation. A servo motor with encoder allows for constant, real-time measurement of spindle positioning
|Ideal for CNC Beginners
|Ideal for entry level CNC users. The conversational programming interface is logical and easy to learn. The innovative, integrative start-GUIDE from Siemens provides an on-line digital help function on every screen. Helpful instructions are available anytime - at the 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 and interface is ideal for harsh environments. Small, compact design matches the AutoMate CNC line of lathes and mills.
|USB Connector - Easily Handles Large Files
|This unique Siemens function allows for the streaming of large program files direct from a USB. Now you can machine large program files with the Siemens 808D Control. Other CNC systems lack this robust level of functionality.
|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.
