The FEMCO HL-55/1250 is designed to meet the demands of heavy cutting and interrupted cuts and give long term accuracies with excellent surface finishes. Stringent manufacturing processes and a rigid design is combined with advanced state of the art technology to give a cost effective solution to your turning needs.


  • High Speed 2500 RPM Spindle
  • Large Bar Capacity
  • Powerful Fanuc 30/35 HP. Motor
  • Big Bore 15” Chuck Standard
  • Extra Wide 12 Station Bi-Directional Turret
  • Large 28.62” Swing Over Bed
  • Fast 630/787 IPM Rapid Traverse
  • Solid Wrap Around Box Ways
  • Programmable Tail Stock Body and Quill
  • 45 Degree Slant Bed


The Bed is designed to have a 45 degree slant important to give a minimum tool tip over hang and maximum rigidity. The bed is a solid one piece casting both the saddle and tailstock ways are in the same plain thus eliminating thermal distortion. Heavily ribbed in strategic locations determined by computer finite analysis assures consistent accuracy’s and excellent finishes.

Guideways are wide wrap around box designed for long term accuracy and rigidity. The ways are widely spaced for grater rigidity and stability. All ways are induction hardened and are ground true to the axis planes. The mating surfaces are lined with turcite providing excellent wear and slip stick characteristics due to its low coefficient of friction. Turcite reacts with the structure giving good vibration damping and high static and dynamic stiffness.

The Headstock is a precision machined close grain meehanite casting assuring precise alignment of the critical spindle bores. Mounted on the same plain as the tailstock to ensure perfect alignment and center height with out being effected by the bed temperature. The spindle is supported by two double row cylindrical roller bearings and duplex angular contact thrust bearings. All spindle bearings are precision  class P4 (AFBMAB7) and are permanently grease lubricated.

FEMCO rates clamping force at 1899 radial foot pounds of force from the turret center line to the tool tip. This is the actual force applied during cutting. A large Curvic coupling provides the rigidity for long tool life and high surface finishes. Turret indexing is non-stop bi-directional, with a .9 second index time. Turret repeatability is .001 of a degree. The extra wide 12 station turret with a 4 inch width for longer boring bar support. The large turret is interference free for a 15” chuck and is flexible for left or right handed ID or OD tool layouts.

Both the X and Z Axes are driven by double nut High Precision Ground Ball Screws. Both the ball screws are supported on both ends by angular contact thrust bearings. This double support design assures excellent positioning accuracy and repeatability and minimizes thermal growth. Both axis are driven by Fanuc AC digital drives and motors providing a MTBF (mean time between failure) of five years.

The Heavy Duty Tailstock is fully programmable both the body and quill. Tracking on ground ways that are cast in the machine bed to insure positive alignment to the spindle center line. The quill travel is a  generous 3.94” and the taper is Morse #5.

Delivered through a high volume centrifugal pump to the turret. The system is designed to provide Coolant on the Tool or through the Tool.
