The Grizzly Industrial G0745 Micro Metal lathe is designed for turning small workpieces. With 4 1/4" swing over bed and 6" distance between centers, the lathe is well-suited for jewelry, model-making and hobby applications.
The compact machine is built on a precision-ground cast iron bed and offers a footprint of 14" × 5 1/2", enabling benchtop use. The tailstock quill travel measures 7/8" and the cross-slide travel is 1 1/2". A single-phase, 110-V motor provides 150 W (1/5 hp), and the variable-speed spindle ranges from 100 to 3,800 rpm. The lathe is equipped with a 2" three-jaw chuck, a chuck safety shield, a tailstock dead center and a cross-slide mounted toolholder.
Editor PickRobotic Cell Cuts Cycle Time, Improves Part Quality
Sew-Eurodrive Inc. worked with Okuma America’s authorized systems dealer, Gosiger Automation, to design an automated cell that includes an automatic, magazine bar feeder that loads 6-ft. lengths of barstock into the machine. The shop also switched to an Okuma twin spindle, twin turret turning center so all of the machining operations are completed in one setup, thus eliminating additional fixtures and operator intervention. The resultant system reduces cycle times and requires much less operator involvement. As a result, production time per part was more than cut in half – from about 5 minutes to 2 minutes, 20 seconds.
