15L Slant-PRO® Lathe Workholding, Tool Holding, Cutting Tools, and Accessories

The 15L Slant-PRO® CNC Lathe can accommodate workholdings of various sizes due to its 5C collet taper insert and accessories, which are compatible with all lathes, but designed specifically with the 15L Slant-PRO® in mind. This includes both headstock and tailstock options.

  • 5C Collet: With the 5C collet chuck taper insert secured in the spindle with the 5C lever closer, the lathe features all the convenience, strength, and precision associated with the chuck, whether you’re woodworking or metalworking.
  • D1 Workholding: Easily remove the taper insert and the lathe becomes compatible with D1 workholding, including direct mount chuck and jaw sets. This ability to maintain precision while turning larger-diameter pieces – whether they be square or circular – is crucial.

Cutting tools for the 15L Slant-PRO CNC Lathe can be secured in the tool holders and holding systems designed for the Tormach lathe, such as with a quick change post, gang block system, turret system or with a combination of these methods.

Turret-The turret system combines automation, precision, and confidence in letting a lathe run unattended, and this low-maintenance approach to turning is enticing for production-level machining. Beyond these commonly recognized benefits, other perks of turret systems include increased flexibility and easier programming.

Since the turret can be mounted higher on the lathe carriage, longer workpieces can be turned using the turret system, in conjunction with a tailstock to ensure accuracy. The workpieces can also have wider diameter, since most tools will be secured to the turret instead of the carriage, creating more clearance.

With a turret system housing many the tools, programming is generally easier since you no longer have to worry about accidentally hitting the workpiece against tools or having enough space between tools for turning.

Gang – Gang set up is quick, requiring a simple securing of the gang block in the carriage T-slots, and then selecting and securing the tools. While turning, the gang option is also quicker than turret or quick change since the carriage sides to change tools, instead of indexing or manual tool changing, which can add extra minutes to a job. This also adds to accuracy.

Once a gang block is shimmed into place, its sturdy design leaves little room for tool deviation, making it the go-to option for turning small workpieces demanding the utmost precision. The simplicity associated with gang tooling is critical to why it’s chosen by machinists; it’s approachable, easy to set up, and accurate.

Quick Change- The obvious benefit to quick change tool posts is in the name – they’re quick. After the Quick Change Tool Post is secured to the carriage, which only takes a few minutes, the tools, secured in the tool holders, can be inserted and removed in seconds with a simple lever crank.

Another key feature of this toolholding option is the versatility and flexibility Quick Change Tool Posts offer machinists, which can be just as important for various applications.

There has never been an official decibel reading done on the machines because the sound level we hear may not be the sound level you hear. There are too many factors that determine sound: use of enclosure, material being cut, speeds, feeds, depths of cut, size of room, etc.
