The Hardinge GS 150 CNC Lathe offers an exceptional combination of standard features in a rugged, affordable compact machine. This Hardinge-designed and -manufactured machine is intended for speed, power, accuracy and durability over competitive machines in its class for the highest possible return on investment.
The GS 150 features a 15-hp (11-kW) spindle drive (with Fanuc Control) and includes a 3-jaw power chuck as standard equipment. This machine has an ANSI A2-5 spindle with 1.77" (45mm) through draw tube capacity and a maximum spindle speed of 6,000 rpm.
Rotation time for the bidirectional 12-station VDI-30 turret is .78 second (unclamp/index/clamp) to an adjacent station. Farthest-station index time is only 1.0 second.
The strategically-ribbed 45-degree slant bed machine base provides superior rigidity and durability. All structural components and castings are qualified by Finite Element Analysis (FEA)-a proven, highly-technical procedure that ensures a stiff, structurally-sound machine tool design.
