The Slant Turn 60N bed is a single piece Meehanite Iron casting designed to provide solid support, and rigidity, to perform cuts right up to a maximum horse power. Constructed with a 45 degree slant, the Slant Turn 60N bed offers outstanding safety and convenient access to the work zone for the purpose of machine set up, tooling changeovers, work piece load/unload, reduced operator fatigue, and most importantly the elimination of chip build up which can lead to excessive heat distortion around the critical working members of the machine/system. Wide, precision machined, hardened and ground integral "Z" Axis ways provide excellent support for the cross slide unit. A separate set of ways are pro¬vided to support the Tailstock, and accessory work support equipment.
The Slant Turn 60N headstock is engineered to provide the (via a four (4) step hydraulic shift unit) constant torque and constant horsepower ranges, neces¬sary for optimal piece part production over a wide range of cutting condi¬tions. Spindle bore 7.1" A2 11 nose mount permits the utilization of a multitude of standard workholding systems, and/or medium to small sized bar stock cutting applications. Support for the spindle is achieved through the use of ultra precision, ta¬pered roller bearings, and our extremely rigid meehanite iron headstock casting. Power to the headstock unit is provided by a 60 H.P. (45 kw) one half hour duty rated, drip proof, blower ventilated, D.C. main drive motor and SCR.
