TC1417 Turret Lathe w/ Tail Stock - Features

Lathe Machine - Features
Heavy Castings w/Cast BaseCompact machine design is highly rigid and weighs over 1700 lbs. High weight to work cube ratio - assures high rigidity, even when taking heavy cuts.
Solid Box WaysTraditional ways design has several advantages - including the ability to take heavier cuts and handling heavy work pieces. Induction hardened and ground for precision and long life.
Full EnclosureMachine is completely enclosed with a sliding front access door and access panels on tail stock end and back side. Coolant and chips are enclosed and properly recycled. Electromagnetic lock keeps operator safe.
1.65” Spindle BoreWith MT5 spindle taper. Easy access for manual collet systems and optional pneumatic or hydraulic chuck. Adaptable for an automatic bar feeder.
Manual 6” ChuckWith D1-4 spindle nose chuck mount. Manual 6” scroll chuck is standard option - adaptable for pneumatic or 5C collet holders.
Oversized WaysExtra wide spacing between ways with large contact area between table and ways built-in. Provides for extra rigidity and accuracy - whether taking heavy cuts or doing fine finish work. Assures high quality results.
Center Mounted Ball ScrewEliminates torque on the ball screw - improving dynamic properties of the machine and increasing component life. Also provides better protection to the ball screw.
Pneumatic 5C w/Foot Actuator5C collet system is built into the spindle. Offering a 5C collet closer along with the manual chuck. Also comes standard with foot operated actuator for improved efficiency and operator safety.
F6-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.
Through Turret Coolant DeliveryEach tool holder position on the 6 tool turret has a coolant nozzle that can be programmed to turn on when that tool is in use and turn off when finished using that tool. Highly efficient cooling saves on tooling costs and improves results.
Extra 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 6-tool turret tool post.
Manual Tail StockWith nearly 12” of travel on the tail stock and 5” of quill travel, this manual tail stock expands the capabilities of the TC-1417 to allow for turning of extra long stock or work pieces.
Foundation PadsHeavy machined leveling pads adjust the height to keep your machine aligned and balanced. Solid multi-point contact with shop floor reduces vibration and increases accuracy.

Programmable Coolant SystemControl coolant at the control panel, using standard M-Codes. Cycle times can be significantly reduced - 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 - also waterproof, resistant to cooling and lubricants. Impact and vibration resistant.
Tri-Color Alarm LightGreen light turns red when control alarm recognizes a machining error or machine 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
Closed Loop SystemSystem directly monitors motor position and velocity in real time. The system then automatically makes corrections to assure the correct tool positioning. High accuracy, and maximum parts quality - minimal reject 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 - vibration free 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.
