Hanwha Machinery’s XD42 is a larger-capacity Swiss-type machine designed to enable operators to produce larger-diameter Swiss parts. The 42-mm (1.653") machine with guide bushing offers an alternative for producing some parts that are too large for a standard Swiss-type lathe, especially in the automotive industry, according to the company. According to the company, the XD42 is an efficient model for setting tools a short distance from the center of the headstock.

The bearings and toggles on the main and subspindles contribute to a stable machine structure along with strong chucking force via a large hydraulic cylinder as well as the machine bed’s highly rigid single-piece casting.

The machine is said to provide cost-effective parts production for heavy milling and cutting. The horizontal gang-type design offers a stable base and easy chip removal. Cross and back tools are available with ER20M as an option and a powerful motor (cross drill: 2.2 kW, 8 Nm; back drill: 1 kW, 3 Nm). The off-center drill next to the subspindle is powered by gears rather than belts.

The machine provides the option of a bar lifting unit for the automatic loading and replenishing of heavy barstock. Two anti-vibration units that are designed for the V block (hybrid static block) to guide the barstock efficiently. Other options include specialized tools, a chip conveyor and a larger coolant tank.
