  • Operation manual
  • Optional
CYCLEMATIC have applied the Digital Threading technology from 618e toolroom lathe to CHR-68 chucker.

The chucker is part of our toolroom lathe lineup. It comes with a 8-station indexing tool turret for quickly changing tools on complicated job setups. It also has 8-position carriage stop that can be setup to simplify multiple repetitive tool feeds.

Previously for threading operations chucker lathe relied on a separate threading attachment that was bulky and cumbersome. Now with CHR-68e's Digital Threading capability, threading operations are microprocessor controlled and carried out by synchronized spindle speed and servo motor feed. All the operator needs to do is punch in desired thread pitch and thread direction then start the spindle rotation and carriage feed as normal using start/stop levers at the headstock. No gears to change. Less moving parts, easier maintenance.

Digital Threading makes threading on chucker lathe easier than ever

Digital Threading provides touchscreen LCD to select thread pitch. Choose target TPI or mm pitch on the screen , set spindle rpm and start threading just like on conventional lathes.

Simple No threading attachment. No threading gearbox. Less moving parts, quiet operation, maintenance free design.

Servo driven design

Internally, servo motor drives the leadscrew so feed rate is synchronized in proportion to spindle rpm.

Figure 1 - Lifting machine

Lifting machine, arrange rope or cable as shown in figure 1, and check to see if the correct balance has been obtained. Then insert pads of soft cloth between the edges of the rope and machine. The net weight of this machine is approx 1100 kgs (2420 lbs). So the rope or cable must be rated at 3000 lbs capacity.

TOP

An inspection should be made after arrival of the machine in your plant. Look for possible damage caused by shock or vibration during transportation, also check for any missing parts, standard tools or other equipment.

In shipment, all exposed surfaces of the machine are coated with a antirust liquid. Before moving carriage and cross-slide, lead screw tailstock…etc, these surfaces should be thoroughly cleaned to remove all antirust liquid use a soft brush and solvent. This is very important because it can prevent any dirt or grit which may have accumulated on the antirust liquid from working under the sliding members and causing undue wear.

※CAUTION:
DO NOT USE COMPRESSED AIR TO CLEAN, WHICH WILL REDUCE THE MACHINES LIFE.

  1. The carriage clutches are made of a friction type material, designed to slip when slide or carriage engages a feed stop. The clutches are a spring-loaded arrangement and can not be adjusted for more pulling power. If clutch slips under a cut, it is a sign of improper tool grinding, dull tool or excessive feed. The friction clutches have sufficient power to handle all work.
  2. When the machine contacts a feed "stop", it is intended for the clutch to slip, To operate clutches as shown in (Figure 29), raise handle "H" (Figure 29) approx. 20degress above horizontal, the clutch will engage, Push down the handle "H" (Figure 29), the clutch will release. When the carriage lead screw is engaged for threading the carriage feed clutch is mechanically interlocked (can not be engaged). This is to prevent machine damage. Adjust clutches as shown in (Figure 29).

The carriage Power Feed unit is mounted on the carriage.
It is powered by a AC motor "M" (Figure 31).
  1. The power feed can be operated only when the machine is running. Start the power feed by turning Cam Switch "S" (Figure 32).
  2. The Cam Switch "S" (Figure 32) controls the direction of the power feed.
  3. The carriage Feed Control "N" (Figure 32) controls the rate of feed. When Cam Switch "S" (Figure 33) is placed in "RIGHT" position, the carriage will feed toward the right, the cross slide will feed away from the operator.
  4. When Cam Switch "S" (Figure 32) is placed in "LEFT" position, the carriage will feed toward the left, the cross slide will feed toward operator.
  5. Turn Cam Switch "S" (Figure 32) to "STOP" position, power feed motor is turned off.
  6. The rate of the carriage feed should be pre-selected to suit each particular job, which depend on material, diameter, type of cut, and tooling used.
  7. The numbers on the carriage feed control panel, do not represent either thousandths per revolution or inches per minute. So the operator must test sample pieces for determining the spindle speed and rate of feed which can best suit to the requested surface finish and production rate, then record the proper settings after testing.
  8. Handle I (Figure 30) control power feed Z-axis , Handle J (Figure 30) control power feed X-axis.
