Sliding Head Technology

The SR-32J sliding head lathe is the ideal solution for medium high volume complex parts

Sliding Head Turning enables the machining of the secondary process on the rear spindle whilst the next component is being made on the main spindle. This can often result in cycle times being half what they would have been on a traditional Fixed Head CNC machine.

The Star machines are designed to run unmanned for sustained periods allowing us to run them 24 hours a day 7 days a week on suitable components, ideal for components in large batches.

The SR-32J provides speed and versatility a perfect solution for high volume production runs.

incorperating two spindles it is able too overlap turn/drill/mill reducing cycle times.

capable off angular drilling, thread whirling, front off-center drilling, deep-hole drilling and thread rolling.

Sliding head technology allows us too machine high quality long components as the round bar moves towards the cutting tool achiving high concentricity, accuracy, surface finish.

Capable off milling features with its cross power working tools allowing your components too come off the machine complete reducing cycle times of which decreases the cost per part whilst improving concentricity and accuracy.

The independent sub spindle has a fully programmable C axis. Polar co-ordinate, allowing profiles such as hexagons and squares to be machined in overlap.
