CNC Tensilathe was developed for use in the laboratory to prepare round test specimens when you need them.Easy to use, the machine can pay for itself in as little as a year or two.
The CNC Tensilathe is the only laboratory-sized, automatic lathe designed specifically for turning round tensile bars from most machineable materials.With its dependable, 1-1/2HP, 180VDC motor, the CNC Tensilathe will prepare specimens from round or irregular stock; full sized or subsized tensile, fatigue and similar round test samples can be accomplished.It was developed for operation by lab personnel with no previous machining experience.The CNC Tensilathe uses a standard 3-jaw chuck to hold the specimen; the opposite end is center drilled to accommodate a live center.Samples from approximately 1/4” to 2” diameter can be completed, using round or irregular starting blanks; the finished specimens are accurate to within +.0005”, and will have a 32 or better surface finish, depending upon the material.A built-in micro-drop coolant system increases cutter life and improves surface finish, while the moveable chip shield over the working area reduces flying chips.An emergency stop switch is mounted on the front of the lathe, as are all power switches.The CNC Tensilathe is shipped fully set up; the computer must be hooked up, and the machine is ready to operate.
In addition to turning straight shouldered round tensile bars, the CNC Tensilathe has an add-on threading package available. Typically, when threading, bars are turned to round, if required, threaded, and the gauge section is completed last.
