In Detail

The PD 400 lathe is the heart of a multifunctional, expandable system, and is unequalled in its class.
Made in Austria, this lathe is ideal for straight and cross-cuts, taper turning, internal and external thread cutting and slotting, and is usable on materials such as steel, non-ferrous metals, aluminium and alloys.
Even under heavy loadings, the solid precision of this machine demonstrates negligible tolerances. There is a wide range of accessories to complement the lathe's functions.
The bed comes already equipped with a milled and tapped base surface for securing the PF 400 Mill/Drill unit.
With a comprehensive gearbox, the PD 400 is suitable for cutting threads in 19 steps from 0.2mm to 0.3mm. The belt options are clearly positioned and easy to change.
Included as standard is a 100mm Rohm precision feed chuck, a toolpost and two toolholders with individual stop and height adjustability, live rotating MK2 centre and tailstock chuck.
A cross-braced cast iron bed gives this lathe its stability; its wide legged shape has prism slides for the apron and the tailstock. A two speed auto-feed facility is included on a protected lead screw with a 12mm x 1.5mm Acme thread.
