Servo/Conventional Lathes

Servoturn® 560

Advanced servo-conventional lathe technology for powerful chip removal at long turning lengths
Workpiece length (max.)
Turning diameter over bed

Setting new standards with conventional lathes featuring large center widths:

  • Feed and thread leads can be selected via rotary switch - what a brilliant concept.
  • Heavy, large machine beds made of high-strength mineral-casting
  • SERVOTURN® integrates many years of experience and superior construction properties, allowing uninterrupted cuts with high grade surface quality even under highest loads
  • Stops can be set electronically with the press of a button
  • Feeds are infinitely variable between 50 and 100% via override potentiometer - finally available on a conventional lathe
  • Long turning length can be machined with highest precision due to the superior thermal stability and damping properties of this machine
  • Micro-control via electronic hand-wheels - but handling and postioning just as with a conventional machine
  • Axes are powered by high-quality servo drives that translate your hand movements with the precision and dynamics of modern CNC machines
  • Infinitely variable speed adjustment and constant cutting speed of headstock

The definition of a new standard for conventional lathes had to be perfect - therefore, we complemented the Servoturn® with the following features:

  • The extensive Servoturn® series offers the same performance and features as servo-conventional precision machines
  • All major controls are located for optimum accessibility or are intuitively linked to their respective functions
  • A powerful main spindle drive with infinitely variable speed allows machining with constant cutting speed
  • Feed and thread leads are selected electronically via a rotary switch, and executed by servo-motors featuring maximum precision and dynamics
  • Quick-action tool holder included

Mineral-Casting Machine Frame

  • Mineral-casting reduces vibration 6 times faster than cast-iron (GG25) and up to 10 times faster than steel - this ensures excellent surface quality that could not be achieved with conventional machines.
  • Excellent thermal stability
  • Modern manufacturing process with excellent energy footprint

Linear Profile Guide Rails

  • Maximum reliability and performance
  • Excellent rigidity, strength and accuracy is achieved by optimum load distribution, designed for accepting high loads and torques
  • No stick-slip effect
  • Long life and minimum maintenance
  • Replaceable parts

Recirculating Ball Screw

  • Considerably less errors due to loseness (backlash), resulting in significantly higher precision
  • Significantly reduced friction
  • No stick-slip effect
  • Reduced heat development
  • Less wear for even less maintenance requirements

3-axis position indicator

  • More accuracy
  • Lower error rate
  • Increased productivity
  • Resulting in valuable time savings
  • For increased productivity
  • Easy to read display
  • Operator-specific features
  • Convenient keyboard layout
  • Resolution: 0.0004 / 0.0002"
  • Default coordinates
  • Axis position is maintained when display is turned off
  • Storage for 10 tools
  • Radius / diameter toggle
  • Mm/inch conversion
  • Display for top (Z0) and box way slide (Z1) both separate and in differential / cumulative mode for lathes
