NOTES:

(1) On ST/6 and ST/7, the maximum part length can be increased by 1.5" if tailstock is removed.

(2) ATC = Automatic Tool Changer (pneumatic turret type); QC = Quick Change Tool Holder (Aloris type) 

(3) 5 ipm is the recommended feed rate for cutting.

(4) The Rhino controller emulates the Fanuc 6T controller control-for-control and screen-for-screen to give the students a 100% industrial experience with CNC lathe control.
