Product Description

We designed our CNC chucker lathe for our industrial customers who want the convenience of using multiple tools in a single set-up. The lathe has a 13″ crosslide that accommodates the 3/8″ gang-tooling tool post and two, optional tool posts that can be used for boring and parting tools (tools not included).

NOTE: Machines equipped with ball screws will not include laser engraved scales on the mill table or the mill base.

Standard Features Include

  • Ball Leadscrew*: Rolled Ball Screw with BSH Nut .10mm Diameter, 2mm Lead. C7 Accuracy, P1 Preload. The linear accuracy is 50 micrometers/300mm
  • 3/8″ Gang-tooling tool post that holds up to four tools
  • 14″ Base (Optional upgrade to 18″ available)*
  • 13″ Mill table (Optional upgrade to 18″ available)*
    * NOTE: The axis travel will increase when you upgrade to a longer table or base. The amount of increase will be equal to the length difference for the axis (click the Specifications tab for details).
  • Mill Saddle: Has electroless nickel coating with Teflon. This coating offers a hard surface that is rustproof. The Teflon provides a friction coefficient of .1-.2u for smoother movement of the saddle and the table.
  • 3C Collet headstock: TIR (total indicator runout) is rated at 0.001″ (.0005” or less upon request for an additional $60.00 charge) on the 3C headstock. Also, the 3C spindle is electroless nickel plated to aid in rust prevention and to increase the surface hardness of the spindle for durability.
  • Powerful 90V DC motor with electronic speed controller
  • Accordion way cover and brass-tube leadscrew cover
  • The maximum feed rate is 32 in/min.
  • The largest diameter through the collet is ½” (13mm). NOTE: collets are not available through Sherline Products. We recommend buying them from Hardinge.
  • 1-year warranty on all components for non-production use. 90-day warranty on CNC and computer-related components.

*NOTE: See the Specifications tab located above for the Ball Leadscrew and High-Torque Stepper Motor specs.
