These series of conventional lathes use a complex body casting with a combination of both box and angular internal ribbing, resulting in a wide base and bed structure that is at least 1/3 more rigid than machines of more common design.
The carriage is equipped with a feed/rapid joystick control that is intuitive and easy to use. Spindle forward/reverse and braking incorporates a hydraulic control.
Manual braking and foot braking are convenient for the operator to use. The brake is sensitive, safe, and reliable.
SMTCL conventional lathe features good rigidity, in terms of both structure and power transmission. The machine has stable accuracy, and can also take heavy cuts. The underside of slide ways are coated with TSF improved turcite-style anti-friction material, helping the lathe achieve easier movement and longer service life. The lubrication system is equipped with an automatic external reservoir, which improves machining accuracy and reduces wear. The tailstock is equipped with a scale dial which makes feeding of the quill intuitive to the user
