This package deal comprises an Axminster Engineer Series SX3 DIGI Mill Drill, Axminster Engineer Series Powerfeed and Floor Stand
Axminster Engineer Series SX3-DIGI Mill Drill
The SX3 DIGI is a highly advanced mill drill with a 3-axis digital readout (DRO) system for the table position (X & Y) and headstock height (Z). Its standard features include a tilting head, digital spindle speed and downfeed readouts and a thread tapping facility. It is a compact and refined machine, ideal for the experienced model engineer or a small engineering workshop. The rectangular cast iron column, equipped with dovetail guides for the milling head, is a very substantial section and guarantees accurate, chatter-free performance.
A 1,000W DC high torque motor drives the spindle via a digital, electronic, push-button speed controller. The SX3 DIGI also features forward/reverse spindle direction. Buttons on the downfeed levers control the thread tapping facility. All control wheels are smooth in operation. The scales graduated in steps of 0.02mm, allow for some very precise machining. The machine comes with a 1-13mm drill chuck, ER32 collet holder. It has a 3MT quill for fitting milling chucks or other items of tooling.
Axminster Engineer Series Powerfeed
This is a very useful powerfeed system for the X-axis to provide a smooth, variable speed drive to the traverse of the table, ensuring much greater control of the cut finish, compared to feeding manually. The controls for left and right movement are simple and movable stops, and provide auto stop in any position on the table. The switches have protection to IP67 allowing the use of a coolant system. The powerfeed is simple to fit to the mill and powered by a standard 230V plug, so requires no additional wiring.
Axminster SX3 Mill Floor Stand
This cabinet stand has shelves for storing tooling and a lockable door. It provides a stable base for the mill drill and a comfortable working height. It features a built-in swarf/drip tray. Some assembly required.
