Chevalier machines exhibited at Houstex 2019:

FBL-510C MC True Slant Bed CNC Lathe With Box Ways

Chevalier’s FBL-500 Series is an incredibly versatile machine that is helping manufacturers with a wide range of needs. 45-degree true slant-bed design shortens the distance between the operator and the work piece. The proximity of the chuck, turret, and tailstock to the front of the machine enables the operator to load and unload work pieces with ease. FBL-500 Series is a single-piece Meehanite® casting with a wide-span and ribbed torque tube design, which prevents thermal deformation and twisting.

FBL-460 True Slant Bed CNC Lathe With Box Ways

The FBL-460 machine is designed with a 45-degree true slant-bed, rigid box ways structure with torque tube design. The machine is engineered with ease of access and trouble-free maintenance in mind. The series’ structure, ribbed Meehanite cast iron mono-block casting––with hardened and ground hand-scraped slideways, helps resist deflection and vibration during heavy machining and ensures stable end-to-end cutting of long shafts.

EM2040L High Speed Vertical Machine Center (Linear Ways)

This EM Series machine is a high-speed VMC with a cost savings that hammers the competition. It delivers more bang for your buck and increases your production capabilities. The series is engineered with efficiency to satisfy the need for large quantity machining.

The major parts of the machine are constructed of high-quality Meehanite cast iron, which offers superior stability. The machine's base is supported by full-travel, enabling it to be suitable for high-speed machining. All three axes are built with high-speed linear ways providing smooth quick movement without delay.
