VL240 ASM EVS

Email

The VL240 ASM Swivel Head Lathe is a versatile machine because of its 90 degree swivel head facility and solid cast iron construction. The VL240 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 a adjustable 4mm thick plate stand which has been designed with a 700mm wide footprint for stability and rigidity.  The adjustable legs allow you to customise the height to suit your ideal work height.

          

 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. Seperate electronic variable speed box that can be mounted away from the lathe and magnetic switch box that can be positioned anywhere you are working.

Maximum spindle RPM at each Pulley step


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. 

The stand has optional extra tool holder brackets which can be mounted in 4 seperate locations on the stand ends.
