LT1440 - Small Shop Big Bore Lathe - Features/Benefits

Lathe Machine - Features/Benefits
Heavy Machine Castings w/Cast BaseHigh work-to-weight ratio that assures a superior damping function and reduced vibrations. The result provides higher part quality consistency and accuracy.
Full EnclosureMachine is completely enclosed with a sliding front access door and access panels on the tail stock end, and backside. Coolant and chips are enclosed and properly cycled. Keeps operator safe from flying debris.
2.01” Spindle BoreGenerous spindle bore with through hole allows for pass through of large diameter stock. Easy access for manual collet systems, and optional pneumatic or hydraulic chuck.
Solid Box WaysTraditional way design has several advantages - including the ability to take heavy cuts and handling heavier work pieces. Induction hardened and ground for precision and long life.
Manual 6” ChuckWith American Standard A2-6 spindle nose. Manual 6” scroll chuck is standard option - adaptable for pneumatic chuck or 5C collet holders.
4-Turret Tool PostElectric indexing tool post allows for convenient tooling changes using lower cost standard size tooling. Useful in small part run operations, machine shops and prototyping - situations where you are changing tooling more often.
Two Tool Gang PlateLocated directly behind the turret tool post, this BONUS gang plate allows you to add additional tooling to your operation. You aren’t limited to the tooling you can fit in the 4-tool turret tool post.
Tool Box and ToolsA set of the basic tools required for maintenance are included with this lathe. Gives you what you need to get your machine up and running, and for routine maintenance.
Manual Tail StockWith nearly 12” of travel on the tail stock and 4” of quill travel, this manual tail stock expands the capabilities of the LT1440 to allow for turning of extra-long stock or work pieces.
Foundation PadsHeavy machined leveling pads that adjust the height to keep your machine aligned and balanced. Solid multi-point contact with shop floor reduces vibrations and increases accuracy.
Drive System - Features/Benefits
4 HP VFD Spindle DrivePlenty of power to match the machine’s capacity - nearly twice the power of comparably priced machines.
100-2500 Spindle Speed RangeInfinitely variable speed ranges, from 100-2500 RPMs. No need for changing gears or belts.
Feed Rates: 180 IPM on X and 200 IPM on YFaster speeds equals higher production rates. The Siemens industrial control, and axis servo drive system provide the power and control that allows for higher speeds - many times faster than competitive systems.
Safety/Operation - Features/Benefits
Automatic Lubrication SystemLubricates all wear points during machine operation at continuous time intervals. Benefits include: reduced labor and material costs and significant extension of bearing life.
Programmable Coolant SystemControl coolant at the control panel using standard M-Codes. Cycle times can be significantly reduced, while feeding and cutting speeds can be significantly increased. Proper cooling extends life of cutting tools.
Work LightFocused lighting elements increase operator efficiency and reduce fatigue. This light is flicker resistant, waterproof, and resistant to both cooling and lubricants. It is also resitant to impacts and vibrations. 
Alarm LightTurns on when control recognizes a machining error or malfunction. An operator standing away from the machine is visually alerted by the activated alarm light when machining cycle is finished or machine errors out.
Siemens 808D CNC Control - Features/Benefits
Closed Loop SystemSystem directly monitors motor position and velocity in real time. The system then automatically makes corrections to assure correct tool positioning. High accuracy and maximum parts quality ensuring a minimal rejection rate. Also assures smoother surface finishes.
Siemens Servos and DrivesAchieves rapid acceleration and higher speeds - maintains high torque throughout speed range. Motor is highly efficient - and it stays cool. Quiet at high speeds and staying vibration free during operation.
Ideal for CNC BeginnersIdeal for entry level CNC users, the innovative integrative start-GUIDE from Siemens provides an on-line digital help function on every screen. Helpful instructions are available anytime - at a push of a button.
Simple & Intuitive InterfaceWell designed conversational programming functions and Wizards from Siemens help streamline programming at the control panel. All Siemens 808D controls come standard with this SINUMERIK Operate BASIC functionality.
Compact and RobustIndustrial panel design with hardened features is ideal for harsh environments. Small compact design matches smaller machines tools like the AutoMateCNC line.
USB Connector - Easily Handles Large FilesThis unique Siemens function 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.
Built-In HelpsSeveral Siemens provided “assists” help streamline programming functions. One example would be Hot Keys. With the Hot Key function, machine operators can easily access commonly used screens using operator defined hot keys.
