The Crusader AC-1200-1 is a Heavy Duty, Single Spindle, Vertical, High Precision, High Rigidity, High Stability, Heavy Cutting, High Efficiency Turning Center. Turning, boring, drilling or grinding, the AC-1200-1 has the versatility to achieve multiple processes for a heavy duty vertical turning center.
Large parts up to 63” (1600 mm) dia. and maximum weight, including chuck to 11,000 lbs. (5000 kg) are no problem for the AC-1200-1. The large load/unload area makes loading large parts with ease.
The heavy duty machine column and base are made of high grade cast iron and heat treated with a stress relieving process. This ensures a rigid foundation to absorb heavy loads and vibrations.
The AC-1200-1 incorporates the SMS designed, heavy duty, spindle, to easily handle axial loads and high torque requirements with speeds up to 325 RPM and coupled with a ZF dual speed gearbox. The ZF gearbox eliminates noise and heat transmitted to the spindle.
The SMS designed cross rail, with x-axis and z-axis ram slides, provide for high accuracy and consistent metal removal.
A (12) position tool changer that accepts BT 50 or CAT 50 tool holders is standard which enhances the overall performance of the AC-1200-1.
