New SV-38R sliding head lathe from Star GB

Added to MTDCNC by Star Micronics GB Limited on 24 November 2013

Star Micronics are excited to announce the release of their latest sliding head lathe. Due for global release in April 2014, the SV-38R represents the very latest innovation in complex machining and is specially designed for use in the medical, automotive, and aerospace industries.

With its machining capacity of up to 38mm, the SV-38R will be available in two types: Type A, which features 11 controlled axes, nine of which are controlled linearly and two rotationally, while the type B’s 12 axes increase its capability with the fully programmable B axis located on the 10 station turret. Both variants of this machine also have the additional benefit of being able to run as both Guide Bush and Non Guide Bush machines.

The SV-38R has been designed as a replacement for the popular SV-32 machine which has been a huge success for Star over the last 12 years. The new SV-38R benefits from having additional power tool capabilities on the platen plus having a fully programmable B axis on the 3 axis turret. To improve the overlapping capability of the SV-38R, Star have fitted an eight station rear tool post that also has driven tool capabilities. This tool post also benefits from a programmable Y axis and this coupled with the 3 axis sub spindle makes overlapping complex features extremely easy.

To back up its extensive tooling capacity, the SV-38R comes complete with a range of support systems. The Star Motion Control System helps to minimize downtime by optimising processes and stabilising the machine during production, while a variety of check functions can also improve operability and workability.

This latest addition to its range of high-precision machines is indicative of Star GB’s continuing investment and innovation in sliding head lathe technology and its status as an industry leader in precision engineering.
