Star CNC Machine Tool Corp.’s 38-mm sliding headstock lathe, the SX-38, is designed using slant-bed construction to ensure rigidity for the turret mounted tooling. The B axis is a servo-driven axis for positioning or surfacing for those difficult to generate designs. With the B-axis unit supported on both ends, heavier cuts are possible while maintaining fine finishes. When the part doesn’t require a guide bushing, it can be removed, allowing a maximum machining diameter of 42 mm.
