Swiss-Type Automatic Lathe for Large Diameter WorkpiecesJanuary 1, 2016
Star CNC offers the SR-38 type B Swiss-type automatic lathe for large diameter workpieces is designed to provide improved functionality, productivity and accuracy.
For enhanced functionality and machining capability, the rear toolholder of the portal-type tool post has an additional X3 control axis. The lathe employs a power-driven tool unit with B-axis control function. Each cartridge position can accommodate a variety of power tool units, including a tool unit for slotting, polygon machining and more to enable diverse tooling layouts of suitable parts to machine. The main collet open/close operation is performed by hydraulic rotation cylinder.
Machining time is reduced by the balance-cut function through simultaneously controlled X1 and X3 axes. The eight-spindle back working unit with a Y-axis control function is mounted for efficient process split between the front and rear sides as well as flexible overlap machining. The Star Motion Control System is attached to reduce non-cutting time.
The portal-type tool post employs a uniform load cross guide structure to help ensure high rigidity of the tool post. Both the main and sub spindles are build-in type for improved spindle indexing accuracy.
The movable operation panel enables operation at the best position suited to the operator. The spindle head stock chamber and the cutting chamber use a trap door to help ensure a wide opening and work space.
The control is a FANUC 31i-B5. The operation panel features a 10.4" color LCD display.
