A versatile, powerful production turning centre

The machine is equipped with a Siemens 840D SL CNC system with ShopTurn conversational programming system for turning and milling.

The new FCTS 900 slant bed CNC lathe has a heavy duty 60° inclined bed with 70° column.  The machine is equipped with a Siemens 840 D SL CNC system with Shopturn application for turning and milling. In standard execution there is a heavy duty spindle with bore of 140 mm. The machine can be equipped with different hydraulic power chucks. Driven tools are optionally available on standard 12-position toolturret (VDI 60). In combination with the continuous C-axis, the machine can carry out complicated milling, drilling and tapping operations. For working on long boring bars, as a special option, there is available also 9 position tool disc which is working with the standard toolturret. On the disc there are 6 positions of VDI60 (static or driven tools) and 3 positions for tool holders according to DIN69881.

The axes are driven with servomotors through ball screw drives, utilizing roller guideways in X and Y axes for high speed movement and slide ways where high stiffness is needed. The ball screws are driven by brushless motor, toothed belt reduction unit and preloaded nuts.

The massive tailstock is positioned with the saddle with hydraulic clamp/unclamp and hook-up operation (hydraulic live quill is standard). Programmable tailstock with separate drive system is an option. The design of tailstock provides also easy setting and high stiffness.
