Please note that our ball screws only come in a metric pitch
Use the selections in the drop-down menus below to configure your machine.
(For more information on the configuration options and accessory packages please see the options tab below)
NOTE: CNC-ready machines cannot be operated manually until stepper motors are installed.
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.
