TS-1117 Turret Lathe - Features/Benefits

Lathe Machine - Features/Benefits
Mono-Block Cast Iron - True Slant BedOne piece cast iron foundation is a true 35 degree slant bed casting, providing large mass in a small footprint. More mass means higher rigidity and better heat dissipation.
Slant Bed DesignA slant bed lathe is able to handle a larger volume of chips and allows for better chip flow. This design also helps protect the ways from chips and debris.  The 35 degree slant of the cross slide allows easier access to the table and turret. making set-ups quicker and easier.
Full EnclosureMachine is completely enclosed with 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.
1.89” Spindle BoreGenerous bore size for easy pass through of large stock and easy access for optional pneumatic or hydraulic chuck. Adaptable for automatic bar feeder.. Larger spindle bore option available.
Manual 6” 3-Jaw ChuckWith American Standard A2-5 spindle nose. Manual 6” scroll chuck is standard option - adaptable for pneumatic or hydraulic chuck.
8-Tool Precision Bi-Directional TurretElectric indexing tool post allows for flexibility in tooling and programming option. Turret lathes tend to be easier to program, especially when cutting complex parts. Bi-direction changes allows for higher speed and efficiency.
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.
Foundation PadsHeavy, machined leveling pads adjust height to keep your machine aligned and balanced. Solid, multi-point contact with shop floor reduces vibration and increases accuracy.
Drive System - Features/Benefits
5 HP VFD Spindle DrivePlenty of power to match the machine’s capacity.  Optional 7.5 HP spindle drive avialable.  Capable of rigid tapping and spindle positioning for live tooling applications.
50-3000 Spindle Speed RangeInfinitely variable speed changes, from 100 to 3000 RPMs in a single speed range. No need for changing gears or belts.
Scheider Electrical ComponentsOne reason we can offer an 18 month machine warranty is because of the recognized quality and reliability of Schneider Electrical components. Highest reliability rating - highly efficient design reduces power usage.
PMI Ball ScrewsWorld-class standard ball screws - efficiently transmit rotary motion to linear motion, allowing for high-speed, highly accurate axis movements. Accurate ball circle diameters through length of ball screw assures consistent drag torque and low noise.
Precision Hiwin Linear Guideways w/Telescoping CoversWorld-class standard linear motion guideways come standard on the TS-1117. Stainless steel telescoping guards provide maximum protection of guideways from chips and coolant.
Feed Rates: 800 IPM on X/1000 IPM on YHigh quality linear guides and ball screws turn this into a high speed machine. 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
Ergonomic Control Panel and Operator InterfaceMachine control panel adjusts and rotates up to 90 degrees. High tactile buttons, manual pulse generator, and convenient cycle start buttons improve operator convenience, efficiency, and safety.
Auxilary Cycle StartEasy access buttons allow operator to operate pneumatic or hydraulic chuck with the push of a button. Having a second E-Stop within easy reach also adds to the safety features of this lathe.
Manual Pulse GeneratorHandheld pendant that allows operator to be independent from the main control panel. The rotating knob generates pulses that are sent to the machine control, allowing the operator to move the lathe a predetermined distance each pulse.
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 - feeding and cutting speeds may 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/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 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 startGUIDE 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.
