RIKON Energy Instruments has an industry-first resolution for growing capability on its 70-3040 full-sized lathe. And it doesn’t contain change-overs or shopping for any further equipment. You may enhance each its swing over mattress and distance between facilities on the flip of a dial! This lathe’s solid-steel mattress is double-stacked and interlocked on a rail system. Between the 2 beds, a separate 24-volt DC motor drives a steady lead screw and actuator to slip the lathe’s prime mattress part open or closed. The mechanism is sealed inside a tubular casing with an IP54 score, to guard it from mud and moisture. Powering it from absolutely closed to completely open takes about half a minute.
