We are delighted to present the SL-5 and other models of turret lathe that are the affordable option for a variety of uses for small footprint lathes. This machine has three turret options available. The 30 mm Gang Tool 8-station turret disk and the VDI-20 8-station turret disk both are available at the listed price. The 8-Station Axial Driven Power Tool Turret option will add an additional 5k to the system. Please look at complete turret specifications from the Tooling & Accessories section of our web site. Our single-piece heavy casting is the culmination of years of experience in machine tool manufacturing and offers the best features for gang tool and turret lathe construction. We are using the highest quality motion control components and bearings that results in affordable machines that perform at the highest performance levels of other more expensive machinery builders. These machines are ideal for dedicated production applications. We can add parts catchers, chip conveyors, and autoloading systems to maximize the usefulness of the machine. The NEW 980TDi CNC control with updated software/hardware is a very aggressive full-featured control with 2ms block processing and programs with G-codes and M-functions. This control uses the GSKLINK bus technology, matched with 17bit absolute encoders that carry out automatic recovery of the system power-on no-block mechanical zero return, servo parameter on-line modification or servo state on-line diagnosis, etc. We are using a servomotor and drives on the spindles to perform C-Axis functions. This combination will provide the best performance and number of duty cycles per minute, and will also facilitate the use of live tools. Standard Features: 4-Axis simultaneous control, 5-axis digital feed control, 2-axis analog feed control, LAN interface Ethernet Port, complex curve surface machining speed: 8m/min optimum machining speed: 4m/min, Max. Positioning speed: 60m/min max. Feed-Rate: 15m/min 1000 block look-ahead and spline interpolation, Excellent high-precision and high-speed interpolation, Supports macro programs (Macro B) more concise programs, Supports PLC online monitoring, edit, compile and signal follow functions, Supports multiple languages with a change of a parameter, Supports RS232, USB and network interfaces and data transfer, DNC machining and USB on-line machining, Color LCD monitor with 800 X600 resolution 8.4 or Optional 10.4, Rigid tapping, graphic programming, run and test program by hand wheel, 208v (Range 190-240) 3-phase system electronics. 64M program space 60Mb user storage (program capacity).
