CNC Mill & Lathe

CNC Mill Training System (Heavy Duty)

FestoCNCMill

The CNC Mill Training System provides training in computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) using an industrial-grade, microprocessor-driven, heavy-duty CNC mill. The system allows students to practice computer numerical controlled (CNC) code programming and editing, learn to operate mill components, controls, and tools, set a programmed reference zero, follow the steps necessary to machine a part to programmed specifications, and apply the machine code language to current mill technology.

The CNC Mill can machine pieces of soft materials such as plastic and wax, as well as harder materials such as aluminum, mild steel, and brass. It consists of a milling table, a headstock carrying the spindle motor, and a cast-iron vertical column with dovetail slide. The CNC mill is mounted on a solid steel chassis and is equipped with R8 tooling. The stock to be milled is secured in a vise that holds it to the milling table. Two ball screws, each driven by a stepper motor, are used to move the table along the X axis (left and right) and Y axis (backward and forward) to feed the stock through the periphery of the end mill. A third ball screw, also driven by a stepper motor, is used to move the headstock along the Z axis (up and down) for positioning the end mill. The speed of each stepper motor can be programmed separately for feed rates up to 508 mm/min (20 in/min). A 746 W (1.0 hp) dc motor rotates the spindle at speeds programmable up to 3400 rpm. The end mill can be changed to accommodate different stock materials and milling designs.

 

CNC Lathe Systems (Heavy Duty)

The CNC Lathe Training Systems provide training in computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) using an industrial-grade microprocessor-driven CNC lathe. The systems allow students to practice computer numerical controlled (CNC) code programming and editing, learn to operate lathe components, controls, and tools, set a programmed reference zero, follow the steps necessary to turn a specified part, and apply the machine code language to current lathe technology.

The CNC lathe consists of a horizontal lathe constructed with a cast-iron bed, headstock, and tailstock. The lathe uses two ball screws, each driven by a stepper motor, to move the cross slide that carries the cutting tool along the Z axis (right and left) and X axis (in and out) with maximal positional accuracy. The speed of each stepper motor can be programmed separately for feed rates up to 762 mm/min (30 in/min). A 746 W (1.0 hp) motor rotates the spindle and three-jaw chuck, and thus the stock, at speeds programmable up to 3400 r/min. To facilitate maintenance, the Z-axis ball screw is protected by a dust cover.

 

HX8610 Vertical Machining Center

LECNCMILL

The HX8610 Vertical Machining Center (VMC) is an incredibly versatile benchtop CNC milling machine, suitable for all skill levels. It is perfect for machining metals, plastics, woods, and more in a classroom, garage, or office environment. Because the HX8610 VMC is designed to operate on standard 120v power, phase converters or room modifications are not needed. The combination of a small footprint, full CNC capabilities, and affordable price make the HX8610 VMC an excellent solution for education, prototyping, and light-to-medium production.

HX710 Turning Center

LECNCLathe

The HX710 TC features a powerful variable speed spindle motor with two-speed ranges (0 – 1,100; 0 – 2,500 RPM) to accommodate for low-speed torque. This turning center also comes equipped with 2-axis NEMA stepper motors, precision ACME lead screws with bronze nuts, USB-based motion control, vivid LED work lighting, and an MT2 taper spindle and tailstock with a live center.
