The mill/drill head PF 230 converts your lathe PD 230/E into a machining center. The mill/drill head PF 230 comes with a column size 1 3/8″ x 15 3/4″ (35 x 400 mm) including the necessary mounting bracket and bolts to attach it to the lathe PD 230/E. The mounting position on the PD 230/E is already milled. The lathe’s top slide is then replaced with the table (supplied with the mill/drill head PF 230). The table has a size of 4 5/16″ x 2 3/4″ (110 x 70 mm) and 3-T slots 15/32″ x 15/64″ x 15/64″ (12 x 6 x 6 mm).
The lathe now functions as a compound table, with X-Y travel being longitudinal and cross-wise respectively. Three collets of sizes 15/64″ – 5/16″ and 25/64″ (6, 8, 10 mm) are included. Note: The lathe PD 230/E shown in the picture does not come with the mill/drill head. For details on this machine please go to precision lathe PD 230/E. All available accessories for the mill/drill head are displayed at accessories for milling system PF/FF 230.
