Here are the major types of equipment manufactured by Samsung:
Buying A Samsung CNC Lathe
When buying a Samsung CNC lathe, keep in mind that the bar-feed max OD is a lot lower than the chuck capacity. For example, bar capacity for the SL 1500M, a 3-axis CNC lathe, is 2.05”, while the max chuck OD is 6”. The much bigger SL 45M with a 24” OD chuck capacity has bar feed max OD of 6.5”. If you’re buying for higher production volumes, they you’ll want to pay closest attention to the bar capacity, however, for prototyping flexibility and smaller quantities, the chuck diameter may be of most interest to you.
2-Axis CNC Lathes
The Samsung CNC 2-Axis lathes are great for turned parts without too much complexity. These basic machines are solid for turning parts but do not offer milling features. Here’s an overview of the latest models offered:
• 6” Chuck: SL 15E and SL1500
• 8” Chuck: SL 20E and SL3000
• 10” Chuck: SL 25E and SL 2500M
• 12” Chuck: SL 3000 and SL 35E

Multi-Axis Samsung CNC Lathes
Many multi-axis CNC Lathes have sub-spindles which increase the complexity of part that can be produced. Parts begin machining in the main spindle. Live tooling and milling give a lot of flexibly to the types of parts. After working on the part in the main spindle, the part can be transferred to the sub-spindle where the back end of the part is turned and machined. The tooling turret, which runs on a Servo motor, has tooling stations for both the main and sub-spindles.
Sample Models of Multi-Axis CNC Lathes:
6” Main Chuck, 6” Sub-Spindle Chuck: SL2000 ASY
8” Main Chuck, 6” Sub-Spindle Chuck: SL 2000 BSY and SL 2500SY
