Talon LT1320 CNC Lathe
A little lighter built and more compact, but still designed for producing quality parts in a manufacturing setting. Also well accepted in many vo-tech schools. Often fits best for the garage shop because of its small size and lighter weight.

Tool room design layout with versatility, quality, and precision built in. Designed to offer the lowest price with the features of a toolroom lathe. A little smaller than the LT1440, with a lower price.

LT1320 Small Shop Toolroom Lathe - Features/Benefits

Lathe Machine - Features/Benefits
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.
1.5” Spindle BoreWith MT5 Spindle Taper. Easy access for manual collet systems and optional pneumatic or hydraulic chuck. Adaptable for an automatic bar feeder.
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 D1-4 spindle nose. Manual 6” 3-Jaw 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 LT1320 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 times 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 of 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 resistant 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 ensures 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.

Shipping Information


The Automate machines are larger machines which require special attention when transporting. You will want to make sure you recognize the exact dimensions of the machine you're going to purchase in order to make this process go as easy as possible. Please click here for machine dimensions (insert link). Due to such a large variation in sizes of our machines, please call us at 800.476.4849 or fill out the online quote form to obtain a freight quote.

Forklift Requirements
  • The length of forks on your machine must be a minimum of 6' long.
  • The lifting capacity must be greater than the weight of the machine you are purchasing.
Air Ride Delivery
Standard Delivery
Standard Delivery
(Forklift and Loading Dock) This delivery method is a standard Less Than Truckload shipment meant for a location that has a fork lift with a minimum of 6' forks and a lifting capacity greater than that of the machine being purchased. You must also have a loading dock capable of driving your forklift onto the truck. If you're unsure of your personnel or fork lift's capabilities, please contact a local rigger for assistance.
Flatbed Delivery
Flatbed Delivery
Forklift without loading dock: this delivery method enables your machine to be shipped to your location and removed from the truck by a forklift (with 6’ forks) driving at ground level. Your locatin must be truck/trailer accessible. It is a standard open trailer flatbed truck. Machines are crated and covered with a tarp.
Air Ride Delivery
Air Ride Delivery
Air Ride Delivery
Forklift with or without loading dock: this delivery method is an upgraded package that transports your machine on a trailer using an air ride suspension system ensuring the delivery of your machine delicately and safely to its destination.
If you do not have a forklift or a loading dock, we'd be happy to discuss alternative options with you. Call us at 1-800-476-4849 and speak with one of our representatives to discuss the logistical solution best suited for you.
Shipping to Canada
We use a variety of transport companies for Canadian shipments to ensure you the best possible rates when going across the border. We offer two different options when dealing with customs, duties and taxes going into Canada. The first option is to act as your own servicing agent, we'll sell you the machine, but contacting a broker and paying duties, taxes and fees is up to you. The second option would be an all inclusive package where we take care of everything for you, your job is to prepare to receive the machine when delivered.
International Shipping
For our international shipments we use Mid-America Overseas. We will quote and ship to the port nearest you, forwarding from the port to your door will be your responsibility. You must provide valid contact information and a ship-to address to obtain a quote.
