The 1340 CNC Lathe features powerful size 34 Z-axis micro-stepper motor within 1500 in/oz of torque to drive the carriage, and X-axis micro-stepper motor within 600 in/oz of torque to drive the cross slide. Stronger torque coupled with micro-stepping motion allows the CNC MASTERS 1340 Lathe to perform accurately without log steps.
The minimum possible motion for the 1340 lathe is .0001″ with a minimum speed of 0.5″ per minute. The maximum speed is 100″ per minute on your Rapid Settings with ramp down effect to keep the machine from jerking.
Full 2 Axis coordinated motion control on bipolar motors–far superior over unipolar technology when it comes to torque and power. True Interpolation.
Standard hand-wheels on each axis for manual option machining with axis motor disengage feature to retain full manual control as on a standard manual 1340 lathe.
X & Z Axes Zero Backlash Ball Screws with pre-loaded ball nuts to eliminate play on the cross slide and carriage travel, and provides precision machining. These custom-made precision ball screws allow for precision turning, facing, chamfering, threading, and even milling and grinding operations. Ball screws are covered from flying swarf.
X & Z Direct Drives–no timing belts to adjust. This results in smoother operations and ensures accuracy unlike pulley and belt drive methods which can cause the belt to buckle causing inaccurate results. This unique design of direct drive keeps the user from having the need to change the belt or adjust as it wears down.
The 1340 CNC Lathe features Computer Controlled Variable Spindle Speed, save time without having to change gears and program your spindle’s speed in the Master Software through G-codes, simple english conversational commands, or on/off with your PC mouse.
Encoder installed at the spindle for true positioning and computer control, making internal and external threading applications easy on CNC without needing to mechanically change gears and manually change levers on the lathe.
This CNC Lathe also features Home Reference Sensors on the X & Z which saves your home/zero position as the first line of your program. This feature allows you to quickly return to the home position on any program without having to manually zero your two axes again.
Limit Switches on both extreme ends of each axis allowing you to confidently test your program without having to worry about an axis travel to its end and causing extreme damage to the machine.
Run your tool path from any line on your program
Easy to Use Jogging Features and Feed Control by pc mouse or keyboard
Jog-Input Command automatically writes each line of your toolpath as you manually jog each axis by pc mouse, keyboard, or the optional hand held remote control joystick to save as a program for repeat use.
Software Power Feed capabilities on X & Z with one click of the pc mouse for exact relative driving distance.
Hooks up to your PC, comes pre-built from the factory, and is completely tested before shipping out.
