The Feeler FT-Series CNC turning centers line has been expanded with the new FT-250SY. The FT-250SY features a true Y-Axis with 100 mm (+/- 50 mm) of travel, which provides increased rigidity and a more robust machining environment. Also, by offering an 8-inch sub-spindle in addition to the primary 10-inch spindle, the FT-250SY provides more capacity than competitive turning centers.
For excellent vibration dampening when turning in hard materials, including interrupted cutting, the FT-250SY features a single-piece structure with boxways, 45-degree slant bed and robust base. Extra rigidity from a heavy duty 12-station turret results in high metal removal rates, superb finishes, and ensures long term accuracy. For maximum integrity, FEA analysis is used to ensure a solid machine base with excellent overall structural rigidity and stability. The machine also offers exceptional capacity with a 30 HP, 3,500 RPM 10-inch (chuck diameter) primary spindle in addition to a 15 HP, 4,500 RPM 8-inch (chuck diameter) sub-spindle.
The Feeler FT-250SY offers an XYZ axis travel of 210 x 100 x 50 x 795 mm. The machine comes standard with a premium Fanuc 31i-TB CNC control. A BMT-65 tool system features a solid interface for tool holding. For maximum machine component longevity, a fully enclosed CE cabinet prevents dust and fumes from entering.
