Discover the New 'Star' in the STAR CNC Galaxy
The new SK-51A is the first in a NEW line of automatic fixed headstock lathes. This new ‘star’ incorporates the advanced Fanuc iHMI control system with ‘smart’ machining capabilities that easily and efficiently guide the operator through the manufacturing process. The twin, 12-station turrets with identical travels allow balance machining on either spindle, while the A2-5 spindle chucking options grip parts where required. The SK-51A’s slant bed design meets the demands of difficult-to-machine materials typically required by the medical, energy and aerospace industries. The machine’s design offers easy access to the spindles and turrets and has extensive tooling options to address complex part needs. The user-friendly touch screen control provides easy access to on-board machine and control manuals.
The new modular design increases the machine flexibility and offers higher rigidity, increased productivity and higher accuracy. A slant-type slide guideway on the Y-axis is standard on all models and the highly rigid spindle sleeve guide system is used to further increase rigidity (in N.G.B mode). The main and sub spindles now have a built-in structure to enhance spindle indexing accuracy. The back working tool post now features increased pitch for 32mm O.D. turning without interference with the other tool stations.
The SR-38B, 10-axis Swiss-type automatic lathe is the latest addition to the Star CNC product line and sets a new standard for machining complex, large diameter parts with high operation efficiency. Rigid machine construction is designed to handle bar stock up to 1-1/2” (1.500) diameter. With B-axis versatility, complex parts can be produced in one operation with the precision and accuracy required by quality critical applications in a variety of industries. Star’s proprietary motion control system further optimizes machining operations and significantly reduces idle machine time.
The Star SX-38 Type A/B, a 12-axis compact Swiss-style machine with slant-bed construction, maximizes productivity for difficult-to-machine materials up to 42mm diameter. The capability to keep 80 tools resident with high horsepower motors means heavy metal removal rates and flexibility. B-axis surfacing with up to 135 degree travel handles up to 0.5″ diameter tooling. This high-functioning, large-diameter model – with gang-type and turret-type tool posts – serves the precision machining requirements demanded by the medical, automotive, and aviation industries.
