Slant Bed CNC Turning Center with Tailstock

STL6, 7.5 HP Servo Spindle

8-Tool Turret -  6" Hydraulic Chuck/Tail Stock
The casting design of the STL6 slant bed CNC turning center with tailstock is a little different from the SL6, in order to allow for the placement of the tail stock  The tailstock on this slant bed CNC turret-tailstock lathe slides on it's own set of linear guides which are positioned at the front of and parallel to the right end of the machine bed.
The STL6 still has the same true slant bed design as the SL6, with the headstock and turret designed on the same bed plane. The STL6 slant bed CNC turning center with tailstock also has similar dimensions and features to the SL6, including the high quality Pragati bi-directionsal turret.  The STL6 base design is a heavier, to increase rigidity when turning longer workpieces.
As with all AutoMateCNC lathes, the STL6 features a closed loop system with servos and Siemens 808D CNC control with conversational programming.  The STL6 also has high quality components like Siemens servos and drives, Schneider electronids, PMI ball screws and Hiwin linear guideways.
The STL6 slant bed CNC turning center with tailstock comes standard with a hydraulic chuck and hydraulic tailstock.  While this standard combination is more expensive, tests have shown that using a hydraulic tailstock can reduce set-up time by up to 90% over the use of a manual tailstock.

STL6 CNC Lathe
Slant Bed CNC Turret-Tailstock Lathe
Parts Making - Power and Precision
High speed production lathe with precision bi-directional indexing turret - PLUS, a versatile, hydraulic actuated tail stock. Similar mono-block bed/spindle design to the SL6 with similar rigidity and precision. However, the base casting on the STL6 is a bit different to accomodate the tail stock.  
The tail stock slides on linear guides that line-up in front of and parallel to the lathe bed.  The tail stock on the STL6 is not mounted on the machine ways, but on it's own set of linear ways.
The addition of the tail stock allows for machining of longer work pieces that require support during turning operations. The STL6 is a popular model for machine shops and contract manufacturers that want a CNC lathe that allows them broader capabilites.

The high quality, 8-position turret has high positioning accuracy and repeatability. Bi-directional indexing of the turret allows for the shortest indexing and cycle time.

STL6 - Slant Bed CNC Turning Center with Tailstock - FAQ

What’s the difference between the STL6 and the SL6?

The STL6 is heavier, but it has similar dimensions and most features are similar to the SL6.   PLUS, it has a tail stock and a longer Z axis travel and greater distance between centers.

The SL6 is appropriate for applications that require the holding of longer work pieces using a tail stock. Popular with machine shops and contract manufacturers that work on a wide variety of turning applications.

Is the STL6 the same frame as the SL6?

No, it is not exactly the same. It is over 1000 lbs. heavier and has a different design to allow for the proper positioning and management of the tail stock. This lathe is not just an SL6 with a tail stock added on. It is a heavier machine designed to have the added flexibility of properly and accurately turn longer work pieces.

Does the STL6 have the same features as the SL6?

It has roughly the same dimensions as the SL6, and like the SL6 it comes standard with a 3000 RPM spindle and the 8 Station Pragati turret. It differs from the SL6 in that it comes standard with a 7.5 HP spindle motor, a hydraulic 3-Jaw Chuck and a hydraulic tail stock.

This lathe features a turret, what’s the advantage?

A lathe with turret offers the greatest flexibility, both in terms of size and dimension of turning piece, and tooling and programming options. Programming turret operations generally is more straight-forward than programming for gang tool operations.

This is probably why turret lathes are perhaps the most common of industrial production lathes found in US machine shops and production shops.

Is this a high quality turret?

The Pragati Company of India has been producing turrets for decades and is widely respected worldwide for the efficient design and high quality of their turrets.

What does it mean when you say the turret is “bi-directional”?

This means the turret will rotate both clockwise and counter-clockwise, not just in one direction. This allows you to program the turret to move either direction, in order to move to the next tooling station as quickly as possible. This makes tool changes faster, and is highly applicable to a machine with high feed rates like the STL6.

What’s the quality of this machine? How good are the built-in components?

This lathe is built with high quality components and construction, that’s why we can offer an 18 month warranty. As mentioned the lathe uses a high quality Pragati turret and Siemens control. It also uses Schneider electrical components and PMI ball screws.

How is the accuracy? Will it hold up?

This machine is designed to maintain repeatability at .0002”. This lathe is also built on a true slant bed, with a mono-block casting design. This assures ultimate rigidity and vibration damping – initially, and for the long-term life of the machine.

Can I set this up myself? Do I need a rigger?

The STL6 is a heavy, bulky, cumbersome piece of machinery that should be handled with respect.  You should carefully and realistially consider your capabiliites before deciding to handle the moving of this machine on your own.  If you have a forklift that has sufficient fork length, size and load capacity, in addtion to a safety minded and well-trained operator, you should be able to safely remove the lathe from the truck it is shipped on and place it at its intended operating location. Some customers rent fork lifts and/or operaters to perform the task. 

Basic instructions for setting up the lathe are included in the operations manual. Of course, you can always call us with questions you may have.

What’s the warranty? How does it work?

AutoMateCNC lathes have an 18 month parts replacement warranty. Detroit Machine Tools will send you the proper replacements parts for parts that prove to be defective.

The Siemens 808D control has a three year (2+1) “in-field” warranty that is supported by Siemens USA.

How about service, can I do it myself? What if I need technical support?

The expectation is that customers who purchase a CNC machine tool will have the adequate mechanical and electrical know-how to handle service questions as they arise. Naturally, you can call and talk to a DMT technician with questions you have.

If you need technical support beyond telephone, on-line or email support provided by DMT technicians, we can help you find a local technician that is willing to travel to your location to provide assistance at your expense. We may already know of a technician in your area that we have worked with previously.

This lathe uses three phase power. Why? Is there an advantage?

The simple answer is that larger horse power machines operate more efficiently when using three phase power.

The advantage of three phase power is that your machines will last longer and operate with higher energy efficiency. Three phase power does not use more electricity than machines using single phase power. This also applies when using a phase converter – The average 10 HP phase converter runs on around 7 cents per hour of electricity.

I don’t have three phase power in my shop, what am I going to do?

The best solution is to use a rotary phase converter, which plugs into a standard 220V plug and converts power from the wall into the three phase power used by the machine.

If you do not have a phase converter yourself, you can purchase a high quality American made phase converter from us for a discounted price.

This is a simple plug and perform solution for the small shop operator. Watch this video to learn more about setting up and using a phase converter:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YJjCQqtEdFU

This video clip shows the Marton Brothers using phase converters to set up their new machine shop.

Siemens 808D CNC Control

The Siemens 808D is a real deal industrial control?

The Siemens 808D is a fully functional, industrial grade CNC control system that uses software based on the same software used in Siemens' larger, more industrial control systems. The difference is that the 808D is designed to be used on smaller machines.

Machine tools with real production capabilities like the AutoMateCNC machines, are best matched with a control system that has the power and functionality to do real production work, just like the Siemens 808D.

(NOTE - PERSONAL CNC CONTROLS: Mach3 and other “personal CNC” control systems are limited and best applied to hobby applications. Personal CNC systems are not easier to use than an industry standard control system, like the Siemens 808D. Also, the application of personal CNC systems is limited).

All AutoMateCNC machines come standard with the Siemens 808D Basic control, which can be upgraded upon request. Other control options include the Siemens 808D Advanced and Siemens 828D controls. Those that prefer using a Fanuc system can order any of our lathes or mills with a Fanuc Oi Mate TD CNC Control.

It says AutoMateCNC machines have servos. Is that true, even at this low price?

Yes, all AutoMateCNC lathes and mills use servo motors and drives on all axes. The biggest advantage of servo drives over steppers is the degree of accuracy and repeatability that can be accomplished. 

Other advantages of servos include: Rapid acceleration and higher speeds  2) High torque throughout the speed range 3) High efficiency  4)  Stay cool during long operations  5) Operate at very low noise levels – even at high speeds. Vibration free operation is one important reason for this.

PLUS, it has a closed loop control system?

Yes, this CNC control is a closed loop system. A servo-driven closed loop system is significantly more accurate than steppers. A closed loop system sends commands from the control out to the machine and then completes the communication process by sending data back that updates the control as to where the machining process is at any given time.

The system directly monitors motor position and velocity in real time. The system then automatically makes corrections to assure correct tool positioning. This assures high accuracy and maximum parts quality. PLUS, it assures smoother finishes and a reduced reject rate.

Does the control have conversational programming?

Yes, you can program standing at the control panel using fill-in-the-blank style forms. Each form has a graphic demonstration of the machining process you are programming. The control interface features include standard programming patterns like bolt hole circles, linear rays, full-contour definition, peck drilling, tapping, etc.

Do AutoMateCNC lathes and mills have a servo driven spindle? What’s the advantage?

Yes, all AutoMateCNC machines have a servo driven spindle, similar to the type of spindle drive motors used on larger CNC machine tools. A servo driven spindle provides much better torque, and assures constant torque throughout the speed range, even at low RPM.

Servo motors with an encoder are able to continually identify the exact radial location of the spindle shaft. This makes the servo-driven- spindle capable of rigid tapping, a function that most machine operators will eventually find a need for. The servo also allows for spindle positioning – an important consideration when using live tooling.

So, this lathe can rigid tap?

Yes, AutoMateCNC lathes and mills can be easily programmed to do rigid tapping operations.

Does the Siemens 808D handle larger programs well?

Siemens has a unique function that allows for the streaming of large program files direct from a USB. Large files are no longer a concern - other CNC systems lack this robust level of functionality.

Will this CNC Control work with my CAD-CAM system?

Yes, the Siemens 808D control has post processors for all CAD-CAM systems. If you are having a problem we will work with Siemens USA to resolve the issue.

What about training?

When you purchase an AutoMateCNC lathe or mill you receive free tuition (Value $299) to attend a day long basic programming and machine set-up class that we hold at our location in Ann Arbor, MI. Siemens USA also has many training webinars on their website.

I noticed that Siemens has a simulator for the 808C control. Is this helpful?

Yes, definitely. You should take the time to download the FREE Siemens 808D simulator on your computer. Spend some time getting to know the control system. Only with a little experience will you be able to see that the Siemens 808D control is as powerful and easy to use as other industrial CNC control systems on the market.

Many customers continue to use the simulator after they have their machines to develop machining programs while at their computer, rather than at the control panel. Once programs have been written and tested they can be easily transferred to the machine control via USB drive.
