FBL-Series Big Bore Lathe

Chevalier Big Bore Lathes

The slant bed lathes are stable, highly accurate machines that can handle rough- and fine-turning operations for large workpieces. Its structure, capacity, power and accessories underscore the machine’s ability to expertly and ruggedly handle various operations in an efficient, productive manner.

The FANUC 0i-TD control with FANUC digital servo drive and motor are standard features with the FBL-530.

Here are vital specs about the FBL-530:

Structure: Heat treated to Rockwell 55 degree and stress relieved. Features a 45 degree slant-bed design, comprised of single-piece Meehanite cast iron with wide-span, ribbed box structure. Four oversized box ways, 130-mm wide and 80-mm high, provide strong stability and support.

Capacity: Spindle bore diameter ranges in size up to 12.5", which suits most oil industry applications. Maximum swing diameter is 40.5"; cutting diameter is 37". Three sizes offered: 80", 120" and 160".  Special Z-axis, ball screw support maintains high precision and stability. Dual-chuck, easy access design
provides convenience of loading and unloading longer parts.

Power: Powerful 60 HP Spindle motor that features a four-stage gearbox and generates 7,118 NM torque would satisfy most cutting condition of large-diameter work pieces or tough material applications.

Turret: Massive, 200-mm-thick disk and hydraulic clamping of its curvic-coupling design ensure cutting
stability during rough turning environments.

Accessories: Standard equipment of programmable tailstock has a built-in MT-6 rotary quill that provides better part’s weight support than a normal live-center type of quill. Standard link-type chip conveyor is also a standard accessory.

Chevalier’s Research and Development
Our state-of-the-art R&D division includes design, prototype development, applications, electrical and electronics. The CAD division uses 3-D/Pro-E software that enables design engineers to achieve finite element analysis and dynamic simulation through all phases of the design process.

 

Quality Control
Chevalier follows the most-stringent quality control process, from casting to final assembly. We
have been a quality control leader since our inception, garnering almost every QC award in the world. All of our machines after assembly are measured and calibrated by state-of-the-art laser calibration equipment. This ensures precise verification and compensation of our machines, resulting in increased accuracy and repeatability. Machines are given a ball-bar test, a series of circular moves. The encoder data from the bar is fed into a computer that outputs a chart for machine accuracy. Engineers, who oversee inspection stations, design our machines to ensure that all aspects of the manufacturing process meet the designer’s specific requirements.
