With a larger swing-over bed as well as production enhancements and manufacturing refinements, the Alpha 1350S is the foundation model for the company’s S1000 Series of two-axis manual CNC lathes. Easy to use, the flatbed lathe series is a toolroom standard with the production capabilities and flexibility of a CNC machine, according to the company.

The Alpha 1000 control, incorporated in the Alpha 1350S, features a 10.4"- (260 mm-) wide touch panel, alphanumeric keypad and a system selection key to provide switching between turning options. This allows technology students to progress easily from manual turning concepts to sophisticated CNC programming and machining, the company says.

Its Manual Guide System is a touchscreen-accessible cutting program enabling cutting profiles and complex automatic programs. The company says a teaching facility is available, allowing handwheel initiated moves to be recorded as a program and rerun automatically after completion of the first component, while all programs generated can be stored to memory for later use or saved to the supplied AIphaLink software. Programs generated in the comprehensive “cycle cutting” mode may be converted to a CNC program if required.
