Haas Automation Inc.’s CL-1, an ultra-compact CNC chucker lathe that comes standard with an eight-station automatic turret, can produce small, precision parts, such as those found in the communications, aerospace, medical, and dental industries.

The CNC chucker lathe is equipped with a 5 hp (3.7 kW) spindle that turns to 6000 rpm. The spindle’s threaded 5C collet nose handles bar stock up to 1" (25.4 mm) diameter, and features an automatic air-closer, the company says.

For higher torque applications, an optional 8 hp (5.9 kW) 6000-rpm spindle is available that provides double the torque of the standard spindle, as well as higher accel/decel rates. The machine’s high-speed cross slide and servo-driven eight-station turret guarantee fast chip-to-chip times and short cycle times, while offering quick setup and good clearance, the company says.

According to the company, this ultra-compact machine can be moved easily with a pallet jack or equipment dolly, and with its small size and light weight, the CL-1 also fits into most freight elevators. The machine runs on single-phase power (240 VAC).
