Newly Designed FBL-520 Handles Rough- and Fine-Turning Needs with Ease and Features a 15″ Through Hole
The series features highly accurate machining that can handle rough- and fine-turning operations. The gear box provides enough horsepower for heavy-duty turning. With live tooling capability, this series can save time by milling and turning a part in the same set-up.
The series structure features a 45-degree slant-bed design, comprised of single-piece Meehanite® cast iron with a wide-span, ribbed box structure. For stability and support, the machine provides box guide ways that are 5.1″ wide by 3.1″ thick. A powerful 60HP spindle motor, which features a two-stage gearbox and generates 9,000NM of torque, satisfies most cutting conditions of large-diameter work pieces or tough material applications. The 12-station turret is 200mm thick for deep hole boring and rough turning. The 15″ through hole is perfect for pipe yard threading and meets API thread standards.
“The FANUC 0i-TD control with FANUC digital servo drive and motor are standard features with the FBL-520D,” says Chevalier National Sales Manager Herbert Hou. “They represent a substantial cost savings and value for our customers.”
Here are vital specs about the FBL-520D:
STRUCTURE: Heat-treated to Rockwell 55-degree and stress relieved. Features a 45-degree slant-bed design, comprised of single-piece Meehanite cast iron with wide-span, ribbed box structure. Four oversized box ways, 5.1″ wide and 3.1″ high, provide strong stability and support.
CAPACITY: Spindle bore diameter is 15″ and a maximum swing diameter is 40″; cutting diameter is 37″. Dual-chuck, easy-access design provides convenient loading and unloading of longer parts.
POWER: Powerful 60 HP spindle motor features a two-stage gear headstock and generates 9,000NM torque, satisfying most cutting conditions of large-diameter work pieces or tough material applications.
TURRET: Massive, 7.8″ (200mm) thick disk and hydraulic clamping of its curvic-coupling design ensure cutting stability during rough-turning environments.
ACCESSORIES: Standard programmable tailstock has a built-in MT-6 rotary quill that provides better parts weight support than a normal live-center type of quill. Standard link-type chip conveyor is also a standard accessory. Optional BMT85 power tool turret is available for milling the part with one set-up.
