Product Description

Hardinge GS 250 CNC Lathe offers an exceptional combination of standard features in a rugged, affordable compact machine. These Hardinge-designed and -manufactured machines are intended for speed, power, accuracy and durability over competitive machines in their class for the highest possible return on investment. This machine features a 25-hp (18.51-kW) spindle drive (with Fanuc Control) and includes a 3-jaw power chuck as standard equipment. The GS 250 has an A2-8 spindle with 3.070" (78mm) through draw tube capacity and a maximum spindle speed of 3,500 rpm. Heavy-duty linear guideways are used for X- and Z-axis motions, providing added stiffness, damping, and surface contact area to ensure a very stiff and durable machine. Rapid traverse rates for the X and Z axes are an impressive 1,181 ipm (30 mpm). Maximum X-axis travel is 10.70" (271.5mm) and maximum Z-axis travel is 23.62" (600mm). The strategically-ribbed 30-degree slant bed machine base provides superior rigidity and durability. All structural components and castings are qualified by Finite Element Analysis (FEA)-a proven, highly-technical procedure that ensures a stiff, structurally-sound machine tool design.
