PLG-42L, PLG-42XL, PLG-52 and PLG-60 have extra long 12.6″ X-axis travel which allows more tools to be placed on the gang tool table. Additionally, PLG-42XL, PLG-52 and PLG-60 have 22.05″ of Z-axis travel to accommodate longer parts.
The PLG-series lathes are built to exacting quality standard. They should hold positional accuracy of 0.0001″.
PLG-42, PLG-42L and PLG-42XL use A2-5 spindle nose which accepts 6″ hydraulic chuck. While PLG-52 and PLG-60 both use A2-6 spindle nose, PLG-52 uses 8″ chuck and PLG-60 uses 10″ chuck due to the difference in motor rating.
Gang Tooling with Optional Turret
PLG series CNC lathes can be factory built with either gang tool table alone or with a combination of gang tool table and a turret. The turret is hydraulically driven and allows 8 more tools to be used on the same machine.
1.65″ (42mm), 2.05″ (52mm), 3″ (75mm) in bar capacity
To reduce operator part handling, PLG series lathes can be ordered with parts catcher. The parts catcher accepts parts that have been parted off at the spindle and loads them onto a parts conveyor. The conveyor moves finished parts to the exterior of the machine.
