Vicmarc VL240 Heavy Duty ASM Swivel Head Lathe
The New VL240 Heavy Duty ASM Swivel Head Lathe is a versatile machine because of its 90 degree swivel head facility and solid cast iron construction. The VL240 Heavy Duty has an electronic variable speed drive that gives up to 200% torque on low rpm with a powerful 1.5kW motor. The Variable Speed Unit for VL240 is contained inside a strong steel enclosure and can be mounted on the wall behind the machine.
The lathe is mounted on an adjustable stand which is made from 5mm thick plate steel. It has been designed with a 700mm wide footprint for stability and rigidity and the adjustable legs allow you to customise the height. The stand also features wood shaving discharge chute and a knee stop bar.
The VL240 lathe comes with 3 step pulleys which provide 3 ratios; 1:1 for small to medium size work, 1:1.5 for medium to large work and 1:3 for large work. For extra torque, simply change the Poly V Belt to the 1:3 ratio. Also included is a digital speed readout, located on the headstock, that displays the actual spindle RPM regardless of which ratio the belt is located on. Another great new feature on this lathe is the indexing pin safety switch. This prevents accidental startup while the indexing pin is engaged.
Headstock positioned at 90 degrees. The headstock can be positioned in 4 positions 0, 30, 60 & 90 degrees. An outboard turning attachment can be purchased as an optional extra.
This lathe also includes a new ergonimic toolrest.
Separate electronic variable speed box that can be mounted away from the lathe and magnetic switch box that can be positioned anywhere you are working.
This precision machined end is designed for bolting on an optional extension bed.
