5/7.5 HP Servo Spindle

8-Tool Turret - 6" Manual Chuck - Manual Tailstock

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  Thetailstock on this slant bed CNC turret-tailstock latheslides 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 AutoMate CNC 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 manual chuck and tailstock. An optional hydraulic chuck and hydraulic tailstock are available. Using a hydraulic chuck can significantly increase operational efficienty. Tests have also shown that using a hydraulic tailstock can reduce set-up time by up to 90% over the use of a manual tailstock.


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, in order to accomodate the tailstock.  

The tailstock 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.
