HOUSTEX 2013: Large Part CNC Turning Center

Large Part CNC Turning Center
Johnford ST-80CH heavy-duty, high-precision CNC turning center is built for machining large parts for industries like oil-field, energy, and construction equipment. The 35,500-lb (16,103-kg) 60° slant-bed machine is available in bed lengths up to 240" (6 m) and with spindle holes up to 24" (610 mm). The turning center features a 50 hp (37-kW)  high-torque spindle motor and standard four-speed gear box, which delivers high torque at low rpm. The ST-80CH’s headstock, tailstock and saddle are all mounted on the same plane at a 60° angle to ensure precision and thermal stability. A 12-station bi-directional turret or optional BMT live turret provides 0.5-second indexing as well as coolant through the tool holders.  A full C axis with live tools is available for applications requiring milling operations.
