170 MMS November 2017 MODERN EQUIPMENT REVIEW Milltronics USA introduces its SL-II series of slant-bed CNC lathes. Designed for ease of use, they feature the company's Series 9000 control, which can be programmed conversationally or with G and M code. The machines have roller guideways for accuracy and heavy cutting, and Yaskawa Sigma V servomotors and drives. The double -nu t ba llsc rews a re pre -load e d, pre - tensioned and anchored on both ends. A bidirec- tional 12-tool turret is standard. The Royal spindles feature six rows of bearings. They are permanently grease-packed and maintenance-free. CNC LATHES EASE PROGRAMMING 1,181 ipm. The maximum part diameter is 17.7" and maximum part length is 28.4". It uses 1" × 1" shank tooling and has a maximum boring bar size of 1.50". All models are available with programmable quill tailstocks, Renishaw presetters, lift-up chip conveyors, bar feed interface, parts catchers and collet chucks.

From batch sizes of 200,000, the machine's short cycle times and long service life can reduce cost per workpiece by as much as 25 percent, the company says. Its productivity suits it for large-scale series manufacturing in the automotive industry. The grinding method enables the entire work- piece contour to be ground in a single processing operation. Because grinding involves lower cut- ting forces than those occurring during turning, workpieces can be ground faster. It coordinates the workpiece, abrasive and machine to increase productivity over that of a lathe. Every step, from material cutoff to profiling and ejection is covered in a single machine, enhanc- i n g p ro c e s s re l i a b i l i t y, m i n i m i z i n g m a c h i n e The SL6-II features 6,000 rpm, 1,181-ipm rapid traverse rates, a 6" three-jaw hydraulic chuck, a 2.2" spindle bore and a 17.5-hp AC spindle motor.
