SB1012F 14" x 40" EVS Toolroom Lathe

For when Electronic Variable-Speed (EVS) is the minimum requirement of your toolroom.

Loaded with all the essential features and high-precision parts, the SB1012F 14" x 40" EVS Toolroom Lathe excels at making dies, fine tools, jigs and fixtures.

Featuring EVS (Electronic Variable-Speed) spindle control, which allows the operator to quickly set the exact spindle speed within the available range of 20–2500 RPM.

A Fagor DRO conveniently reads the position of the apron or cross slide movement.

The bed of the SB1012F is constructed with Meehanite® castings that have been induction-hardened and ground in the traditional 3-V prismatic design.

A Yaskawa Inverter controls the 5 HP, 3-phase spindle motor and insures smooth, consistent torque at every speed.

The feed rod includes a slip clutch that disables the automatic carriage feed when it contacts the feed stop or in the event of a crash.

Like all South Bend lathes, the SB1012F comes with a 2-year warranty covering parts and assuring the unit is free from factory defects. (Consumables are not covered by the warranty.)

The SB1012F manual was written by our U.S.-based Documentation Department and is packed with useful information. The complete and easy-to-read manual makes it easier to assemble and maintain your lathe.

The South Bend Technical Support team is U.S.-based. Parts for the lathe may be available online and shipped from the parts warehouse in Springfield, MO.
