With a heritage dating back to the 1870’s, Broadbent Stanley have been making quality machine tools in the United Kingdom used in the power generation, rail, construction, aerospace, chemical and oil and gas industries.  The BL16HSK is a unique hollow spindle 16 3/8” bore flat bed lathe using pre-loaded quality Timken bearings and the leadscrew that is kept under constant tension in both directions.  This machine comes equipped with a unique Semi-Automatic Inch/Metric Threading capability.  A series of trips are mounted on a trip rail mounted at the front of the machine which controls the Tool Withdrawl, Stop Feed and return saddle to the start of cut, Open apron nuts and return saddle to start of cut, Stop saddle rapid traverse at start of cut and return tool slide to work.  Once trips have been set up properly it is only necessary for the operator to control the depth of cut with the handwheel at the start of each pass.  There is a Hydraulic Taper Attachment with a range of 20 degrees over a distance of 20” that can be used for either internal or external tapers.   The Headstock bearings and gears are lubricated by a motorized pump ensuring an ample supply of oil under all operating conditions to obtain the 18 Spindle Speeds.  The machine is powered by a 30 H.P. main motor and a 2 H.P. power traverse motor.  This machine is ideal for turning and threading large pipe and or large shafts.
