The KC6S CNC Lathe is a fully functional, CNC machine, completely integrated in its own cabinet/floor stand. Ideally suited for education and training, precision machining or small component production. With its bed, apron and tailstock manufactured in high grade cast iron it is highly stable and vibration-free. The spindle is driven by a high torque 1,000W brushless DC motor via a toothed belt under full CNC speed control. Direct drive NEMA 23 Hybrid Stepper motors power the Z and X axis via precision ball screws giving a positional accuracy of 0.015mm. The maximum axis speed is 2m/min and the max feed speed is 500mm/min. A central slideway lubrication system is fitted, as are limit switches to both axis. A four position auto control tool post is fitted, allowing a selection of cutting tools to be fitted. The machine and its electronic control system are fully enclosed in a steel cabinet, with an external E-Stop switch, the access doors being held closed with powered magnets. A sliding swarf drawer is included. The cabinet also has an external 13A power socket for the operating computer, plus extra power points for optional extras.
The lathe is supplied with operating system software and can be connected by an ethernet (LAN) cable to any Windows based computer. The software has an in-built help and tuition programme and will accept G-Code inputs.
The options for this machine include a hand wheel controller and coolant system.
