The TL-15 dual-spindle lathe turns double-ended parts in a single setup.

The TL-15 dual-spindle lathe turns double-ended parts in a single setup. Built on the manufacturer's SL-20 platform, the TL-15 features a 20-hp vector-drive main spindle with 8-in. chuck and an 8-hp subspindle with 5-in. chuck. Both spindles run up to 4,000 rpm with main-spindle options at 5,000 and 7,000 rpm. Maximum cutting diameter for the lathe is 10 in., and maximum turning length is 15 in., depending on the workholding and tooling used. It comes with a 12-pocket tool turret that holds a combination of six VDI-40 tools and six bolt-on tools. Special twin-bore and twin-turn toolholders are included for subspindle work. Live tooling and full C-axis options handle secondary operations such as milling, drilling, and tapping on both the part face and around its diameter. The main spindle is capable of fully interpolated, bidirectional synchronous motion for milling flats, hexes, and flutes.
