SPX Series
Big Bore Slant Bed

Overview

The SPX model brings Kingston’s legendary power and performance to a slant bed lathe. Features include a 45-degree slant bed, choice of 5", 10.1", or 14.8” bore, 35.4” swing, and lengths from 80” – 160”. The heavily ribbed one-piece bed and box way casting is made of a fine-grain Meehanite that is heat treated, annealed twice and ground to attain the stability and hardness of HRC53. Each sliding surface is further coated with Turcite-B for optimal performance even under your heaviest loading and cutting conditions. Our 12-position servo turret is specially designed with a 2-piece large diameter Hirth-type coupling for strong clamping force and high-loading capacity while delivering precise positioning.
