Feeler milling lathes and turning centres from Methods Machine Tools Inc. are high performance machines available in multiple configurations to meet the flexible needs of manufacturers. The machines are now available in Eastern Canada (Ontario and Quebec) through newly appointed distributor, SMS Machine Tools, Toronto.

 

The Methods-FEELER CNC Lathes and Turning Centers include the HT-Series, FTC-Series and FT-Series.

"To meet our customers' unique requirements, Methods has incorporated several different designs and options in the new Feeler milling lathes and turning centers,” says Paul Hurtig, Feeler product manager at Methods Machine Tools.

HT Series Milling Lathes

These machines are offered in three configurations including an HT-30MC power milling turret machine, an HT-30Y model with a power milling turret and Y axis, and an HT-30SY machine featuring a power milling turret, Y axis and a sub-spindle. Each lathe features a 3,500 rpm, 30 hp spindle with chuck diameter of 254 mm (10 in.) and bar capacity of 78 mm (3 in.). The HT-30SY also offers a 6,000 rpm, 15 hp sub-spindle with a 170 mm (6 in.) chuck diameter and a bar capacity of 44 mm (1.7 in.). X axis travel is 178 mm + 82 mm (7 in. + 3.2 in.) and Z axis travel is 795 mm (31.3 in.) in each of the HT-Series machines. The HT-30Y and HR-30SY machines also offer a Y axis travel of 100 ± 50 mm (3.9 in. ±2 in.). The machines feature a 30° slant bed with hand scraped slideway surfaces. Maximum turning diameter is 356 mm (14 in.) and maximum turning length is 705 mm (27.75 in.). A 12-position power turret with milling capability and Fanuc 18i-TB control are standard.

FTC Turning Centres

These turning centres, including the FTC-150 and FTC-200L models, have linear guideways on the X and Z axis. The new machines feature 30° slant bed construction and a Fanuc 0i-TD control is standard. The FTC-150 machine offers a 6,000 rpm, 15 hp spindle with a hydraulic chuck diameter of 170 mm (6 in.) and a bar capacity of 52 mm (2 in.). X axis travel is 150 mm + 20 mm (5.9 in. + .8 in.) and Z axis travel is 350 mm (13.8 in.) on the FTC-150. The FTC-150 turning centre includes a 10-station turret and offers a maximum turning diameter of 300 mm (11.8 in.) and a maximum turning length of 320 mm (12.6 in.).

The FTC-200L lathe features a 4,500 rpm, 25 HP spindle with a 210 mm (8 in.) hydraulic chuck diameter and 65 mm (2.6 in.) bar capacity. This machine offers a X axis travel of 175 mm + 25 mm (6.9 in. + 1 in.) and Z axis travel of 700 mm (27.6 in.). It includes a 12-station turret and offers a maximum turning diameter of 350 mm (13.8 in.) and a maximum turning length of 660 mm (26 in.).

The FT-Series includes six models: FT-200A, FT250A, FT-350L, FT-350AL, FT-500 and FT-500XL. Spindles range from 5,000 rpm, 20 hp to 1,500 rpm, 50 hp motors and offer chuck diameter sizes from 210 mm (8 in.) up to 450 mm (18 in.). Bar capacity ranges from 65 mm (2.6 in.) to 162 mm (6.4 in.). Maximum turning diameter is offered from 320 mm (12.6 in.) to 800 mm (31.5 in.) and maximum turning length from 500 mm (19.7 in.) to 3,006 mm (118.3 in.). X axis travel from 160 mm + 10 mm (6.3 in. + .4 in.) through 40. mm + 25 mm (15.7 in. + 1 in.) and Z axis travels from 540 mm (21.3 in.) to 3,100 mm (122 in).
