Star SL-7 Sliding Head Lathe

Detailed Specification

The SL-7 has been developed to suit small diameter machining requirements and offers accurate, efficient machining capabilities within a compact footprint.

The gang type tool post for face machining has a tool holder for turning and a cross drilling unit for multi-processing in a vertical layout. The 5-spindle cross drilling unit allows tool unit changes at four cartridge positions depending on the shape to be processed which offers wider tooling flexibility on a compact machine size optimized for small diameter processing.

The 6-spindle unit with Y2-axis control for backworking has two spindles in three rows and can mount up to four power-driven tool units in their respective positions. This enhanced multi-processing capability in backworking will contribute to reducing cycle times through the efficient splitting of processes.
