The FBL-1233 slant bed lathe with boxways from Chevalier is especially useful for mixed volume, short-run or dedicated high-volume applications. This machine delivers fast parts machining of bars up to 3.5" in diameter at speeds up to 2,500 rpm, X and Z travels of 12.6" and 32.3" and 708 ipm rapid traverse, accelerating machne cycle times. X/Z axis positioning accuracy is ± 0.0002"/ ± 0.0004" while repeatability is ± 0.0001"/ ± 0.0002". Also minizing cycle time is a ten-position indexing turret that offers 0.5-second tool indexing (next tool). The lathe features massive boxways, 35-hp AC digital spindle motor with two-speed ZF gearbox delivering 68 ft lbs of torque at low rpm and 12" hydraulic chuck. Fanuc's OiT control gives the machine enhanced mathematical processing capabilty. A TFT color LCD screen gives a high-resolution image and better operate visibility.

A chip conveyor with buck comes standard with the machine. Ribbed Meehanite cast iron, mono-block casting with hardened and ground, hand-scraped slidewarys and the machin'e 20,950 lbs total body weight help resist deflection and vibration during heavy machining and ensure stable, end-to-end cutting of long shafts. Low profile, front doors can accommodate robotic loading and unloading of workpieces. Wire-brained hoses protect the hydraulic lines from airborne chip damage. Manual and automatic toolsetters are available to help reduce cycle times and keep non-machining times to a minimum. Other productivitiy options include oil mist collector, an automatic door and a 30 psi high-pressure coolant system.
