Midsize Diamond Turning Lathe
Our mid-size lathe option. If your application fits within a 450mm diameter swing capacity (larger available upon request), this machine may be the ideal solution for your ultra precision needs. The larger slides make this system suitable for both diamond turning and grinding while enabling larger multi-tool production setups. Applications include the manufacture of components used in a wide variety of markets such as electro-optics, aerospace, defense, consumer electronics, bearing, and computer industries.

BENEFITS & FEATURES
Optional C Rotary with Linear Y or Rotary B Axis
Expansion of the basic 2-axis system is simple. One can have up to 4 axes of continuous path motion via the addition of C & B or C & Y. The C-axis motion control of the work spindle enables toric, biconic, and other freeform surfaces to be machined “on-axis” via our Slow Slide Servo (S3) process. Our Oil Hydrostatic Rotary B-axis or removable Vertical Linear Oil Hydrostatic Y- axis can be configured independently on the Z-axis carriage for future added flexibility.
Mechanical Design Strengths
The system was developed with the latest “precision engineered” designs and components, including high stiffness oil hydrostatic bearing slide ways, and state-of-the-art linear motor drives with sinusoidal drive amplifiers. Features a monolitic composite epoxy-granite base structure with integral coolant troughs and embedded carbide fiber reinforcement.
Exclusive “Impact Resistant” Air Bearing Work Spindle
This ideal center mounted thrust plate design, engineered for both heavy loads and high throughput applications, now includes the added benefits of porous graphite. Motion accuracies are guaranteed to less than 12.5nm throughout its 10,000 rpm speed range with total liquid cooling for long term thermal stability.
NanoSMART® Windows Based Interactive HMI Control System
Featuring a high speed 64 bit Delta Tau PowerPMAC, this motion controller is the industry’s first touch / swipe gesture “smart” screen display. Three customizable 22″ wide screens are accessible by swiping left or right from the main screen. Now you have the option to easily create and save your own custom user friendly interface screens to satisfy a particular individual’s preference or a specific application. 5GB program file sizes, 4X faster processing speeds, remote diagnostics and an industry leading 8 picometer feedback resolution combine to make the new Nanotech 450UPLv2 the most operator friendly high performance mid-size diamond turning system available. We welcome you to experience the difference for yourself!
