Turns shafts from 4.0 – 11 inches (101.6 – 279.4 mm). (This machine works within a 16.75 inch (425.5mm) diameter space around the shaft (swing diameter), and 36 inches (914.4 mm) from the end of the shaft.)

Automatic axial feed is variable from 0.003 – 0.011 inches/rev. (0.076 – 0.279 mm/rev.) in 7 increments.

Quick and easy to set up

Mounts on the end of the shaft. Simply remove the gear or bearing to expose the end of the shaft.

The PL3000 can be set up by an experienced operator in less than an hour. Drill and tap four mounting holes on the end of the shaft to attach the tapered mounting flange.

Adjusting screws allow accurate centering and alignment even if the shaft face is no longer square.
