Two versions of the Dugard Eagle 100 slant bed lathe
The 45° slant bed Dugard Eagle 100 lathe can be specified with a 10-tool turret or six-tool platen arrangement. Both configurations are set on the same heavy base casting and feature a massive ribbed headstock and precision linear ways providing a swing of 470 mm diameter and a 290 mm cutting length with 6 inch chuck and a 52 mm bar capacity.
The Eagle 100P with its six-tool, quick-set platen has a maximum turning diameter of 280 mm with travels in x and z of 320 mm. Tool shank size is 20 mm square and boring bars up to 32 mm diameter can be held. A range of toolholders include double and single facing tool types, a single and double boring bar holder and a U-drill holder for tools having up to 32 mm diameter shank size.
The 10-station hydraulic turret Eagle 100 carries the same tool size as the platen machine with a 260 mm maximum turning diameter with travel of 150 mm and 320 mm in x and z. Included in the machine specification is a 70 mm quill diameter tailstock with hydraulic activation under program or manual control with an auto-sensing device to control pressure.
On both machine types, spindle speed is 6,000 rpm and rapid traverse is 30 m/min on linear guideways. A wide range of options to the machine specification, the user has a choice of control systems from Fanuc, Siemens or a Syntec PC-based unit. There is also a choice of bar feed, manual and automatic tool setting probes and the positioning of the chip conveyor to the rear or side of the machine.
