Oil country turning with up to 8.2 metres turning length from Ward Hi Tech
With an outstanding reputation for manufacturing high specification machines with exceptional build quality, the new range of SFM long bed lathes from Ward Hi-Tech are the ideal solution for heavy engineering applications.
The comprehensive new SFM line from Ward Hi-Tech has flexibility at its core with a choice of Fanuc, Fagor or Siemens control and 4, 6 or 8 tool turret stations. The SFM line also provides customers with the option of manual or hydraulic steady, additional boring bar stations, a double chucking system and also a C-axis. Offering these options ensures the Ward Hi-Tech can provide a robust, high quality CNC turning centre with the flexibility to complete most turning tasks.
Ideal for production in the oil & gas, aerospace, power generation and addition industries that demand large turning capacity, the SFM series is available with a distance between centres from 1 to 8.2m. Targeted at large capacity machining, the SFM line can provide a swing over bed diameter from 730mm to 2m depending upon the model selected with a spindle bore from 105 to 532mm. To machine such large components, the SFM Series is built upon a heavy duty and rigid bed design that enables maximum material removal rates.
To optimise the material removal rates, the machines are given a powerful motor from 25 to 60hp, depending upon the model chosen.
