SX-38 Type B Swiss-Type Lathe for Large-Diameter Machining

Expand machining capabilities and maximize productivity. Star CNC Machine Tool Co. introduces their SX-38 Type B, a twelve-axis, compact Swiss-style machine with slantbed construction built for difficult to machine materials up to 42mm diameter.  The capability to keep eighty tools resident with high horsepower motors means heavy metal removal and flexibility. B-axis surfacing with up to 135 travel handles up to ½” diameter tooling.  Software technologies increase effectiveness including Star CNC’s HFT (High Frequency Turning) software handle chip control in tough materials, Star CNC Motion Control System optimizes your program to reduce cycle time, and the Star Monitoring and Operator Support System (SMOOSS-i) allows remote monitoring with real-time efficiency reporting and operator intervention predictability. This new, high-functioning, large-diameter model with both gang-type and turret type tool posts serves the precision machining requirements demanded by the medical, automotive and aviation-related industries.
