Feeler introduces economical FT-250SY high-performance milling lathe with true Y-axis and sub-spindle

Feeler has expanded its FT-series high performance CNC turning centers line with the new FT-250SY. A unique capability in its class, the FT-250SY features a true Y-Axis with 100mm (+/- 50mm) of travel, which provides increased rigidity and a more robust machining environment. Also, by offering an 8-inch sub-spindle in addition to the primary 10-inch spindle, the FT-250SY provides more capacity than competitive turning centers.


For excellent vibration dampening when turning in hard materials, including interrupted cutting, the FT-250SY features a single-piece structure with boxways, 45-degree slant bed and robust base. Extra rigidity from a heavy duty 12-station turret results in high metal removal rates, superb finishes, and ensures long term accuracy. For maximum integrity, FEA analysis is used to ensure a solid machine base with excellent overall structural rigidity and stability. The machine also offers exceptional capacity with a 30 HP, 3,500 RPM 10-inch (chuck diameter) primary spindle in addition to a 20 HP, 4,500 RPM 8-inch (chuck diameter) sub-spindle.

The FT-250SY is a valuable addition to the Feeler FT Series, providing exceptional rigidity and capacity at an economical price.

The Feeler FT-250SY offers an X-Axis travel of 210mm, Y-Axis travel of 100mm and a 1050mm Z-Axis travel. The machine comes standard with a Fanuc 31i-TB CNC control.

A BMT-65 tool system features a solid interface for tool holding. For maximum machine component longevity, a fully enclosed CE cabinet prevents dust and fumes from entering.

Feeler machines are manufactured by Fair Friend Group (FFG). Established in 1979, FFG is one of the world’s largest machine tool builders and has major manufacturing operations in Taiwan, China, Japan and the U.S.A.
