The SL-20L and SL-30L long-bed lathes from Haas Automation, provide longer turning lengths without jumping up to a much larger, and more expensive, machine. These machines offer double (SL-20L) or almost double (SL-30L) the turning length of the standard machines, while maintaining the same maximum turning diameter and swings.

The SL-20L offers a maximum cutting length of 40" and a maximum cutting diameter of 10.3". The maximum part swings are 23" over the front apron, and 9.5" over the cross slide. The machine is equipped with an A2-6 spindle nose and 8.3" hydraulic chuck, with a bar capacity of 2". A programmable hydraulic tailstock provides support for long workpieces, and a 10-station bolt-on style tool turret is standard, with options for a VDI turret or hybrid VDI/bolt-on turret. Featuring a 20-hp vector dual-drive system, the SL-20L's spindle delivers 154 foot pounds of torque for heavy cutting, and speeds to 4,000 rpm for finish work and high surface feed rates.

The SL-30L offers 60" of turning length and a maximum cutting diameter of 17". The machine is equipped with an A2-6 spindle nose and a 10" chuck with a bar capacity of 3". Maximum part swings are 30" over the front apron, and 14.5" over the cross slide. A programmable hydraulic tailstock provides support for long workpieces, and a 12-station bolt-on style tool turret is standard, with options for a VDI turret or hybrid VDI/bolt-on turret. A 30-hp vector dual-drive system produces 300 foot pounds of torque for heavy cutting, and speeds to 3,400 rpm.
