SL-II Series spindles are manufactured by Royal and feature six rows of bearings. They are permanently grease packed, maintenance free with two rows of roller bearings up front, two rows of ABEC Class 7 P4 preloaded angular contact bearings mounted right behind and in back, two additional rows of roller bearings provide stiffness and rigidity for heavy cutting.
The SL6-II is a fast, compact machine with 6,000 rpm and 1,181 ipm rapids. It has a 6" 3-jaw hydraulic chuck standard with a 2.2" spindle bore. The AC spindle motor is 17.5 hp and has a Yaskawa drive. Max part diameter is 12.4" and max part length is 13.4" Standard with a bi-directional 12 tool turret, it uses ¾" x ¾" shank tooling and max boring bar size of 1.25".
The very popular 8" chuck machine is called the SL8-II. This model has 4,000 rpm, an 8" 3-jaw hydraulic chuck standard and a generous 3.2" spindle bore. It has a 22 hp AC spindle motor with a Yaskawa drive. Rapid traverse rates are 1,181 ipm. Max part diameter is 14" and max part length is 20.7". Standard with a bi-directional 12 tool turret, it uses 1" x 1" shank tooling and max boring bar size of 1.50".
The SL10-II is currently the largest of the new SL-II Series. Featuring 10" 3-jaw hydraulic chuck standard it has a large 3.62" spindle bore. The AC spindle motor is 30 hp, produces 3,000 rpm and has a Yaskawa drive. Rapid traverse rates are 1,181 ipm. Max part diameter is 17.7" and max part length is 28.4".
