This machine was purchased from a government facility and showed very little use.. The machine is finished and tested.  There are sheet metal covers and bellows style way covers that are not on the machine for the pictures.  Several bellows covers are brand new.  The old inductosyn scales were replaced with new glass scales for linear position feedback.  New Fanuc Series Oi-TD control has been installed.  Main drive motor was sent to a motor shop for cleaning, inspection, new bearings, and thorough testing.  Lubrication system was gone thru with all new meter units and filters.  Ways are nearly flawless and show no wear.  Table is 48″ with a 60″ swing.  Both the ram and the side head have four position turrets.  Control is dual path capable, so the side head and ram can be programmed to cut simultaneously.  Machine is wired, assembled and can be powered up and shown.  Covers are not on so you can see the condition of ways and ball screws.
