Annn Yang 2000 x 15M lathe,
This is a light version customized for deep hole drilling

Tail end view of Annn Yang lathe
headstock of the Annn Yang 2000 x 15M G lathe
Headstock and carriage of a machine raised to give 2000 mm swing.  The center distance is 50 feet.
This series of pictures are of a high capacity, light duty machine
built up on a bed 692 mm wide. For heavier work machines can be built on beds
888, 1150 oand 1400mm wide and carry loads to 20 tons.
The carriage has a steady on it which is part of a deep hole drilling system.
overall view of the Annn Yang 2000 x 15M lathe
2000 x 15M lathe with 2 carriages. 
The second carriage near the tailstock provides the feed to the deep hole drilling system.
Behind the machine is the huge cutting oilt tank with a chip conveyor on top to collect chips fromt the
deep hole drilling system.
In the picture above you can see the steady mounted on the carriabe near the headstock and the
feed carriage near the tailstock.  This carriage has a self container variable speed drive for the feed,
which is easier to see in the photo below.

The bearing cover is removed to show the bearings
With one steady rest this can support 40 metric tons on
the heavier Annn Yang lathe models.

This picture shows a short section of chip conveyor on top of a high capacity coolant tank.
With huge flow rates for the deep hole drilling, a large tank is required.
The wide range 2 point steady rest.  Intended for heavy parts that do not need the top roller.
This rest has a capacity of 300 to 1250mm.   Note the extra holes outboard of the roller blocks that allow repositioning of the rollers for larger capacity.  The roller blocks can be mounted on riser blocks.
  For hollow / fabricated parts where the weight becomes lighter, a traditional 3 point rest would be required.
detail of steady rest adjustment
Showing the adjusting jack screw of the steady rest.
Further larger adjustments can be made by moving the position of the roller assemblies
closer or further appart.   The holes for these alternate positions can be seen on the top
surface outboard of both roller assemblies in the photo above this one.

Annn Yang 2000 G lathe with large part being bored
A 2000G series lathe drilling a deep hole through the center of a long part in a shipyard.
The part in the foreground has a 70mm hole through it.

twin carriages for drilling
A view of the carraiges supporting and pushing the drill bar.  The coolant delivery pipe ( gray ) can
be seen coming from the 5000 Gallon tank behind the machine. In this specialized system the coolant is
pumped into the hole on the outside of the tool and the chips get flushed back through the center of the drill.

close up of the boring bar steadies
This picture shows the set up of the two carriages to support and push the drill.
We beleive the coolant is injected just infront of the end of the part through a sealed coupling bolted to the end of the part and the yellow box on the bed collects the leaks.  Note that there are no chips or coolant visible anywhere.
The coolant delivery piping is hidden by the toolpost. On the picture below you can see this.

Tail end view of Annn Yang lathe
Again note the neatness of the shop,  no chips or coolant anywhere.  The coolant delivery pipe going to the
front carriage is visible.  The end of the drill has a flange and recovery pipe that is just visible at the left
edge of the picture.  The recover pipe and travelling splash cart is visible in the picture below.

chip and coolant recovery
Here the chip and coolant recovery system is visible. The coolant / chip recovery tank behind the machine is approximately 1/2 the length of the lathe bed. The chip cart on top of the coolant tank
travels as the drill bar feeds into the part.  The primary purpose of the cart is to prevent splash and
direct the coolant and chips onto the conveyor on top of the tank.

15 Hp high pressure coolant pump
Here is the 15 Hp high pressure coolant pump.  The delivery is 125 GPM at 290 PSI
The tank holds over 5000 gallons of coolant.

valves for coolant pump

deep hole drill bit

This is the rotary union for the cutting oil injection. The deep hole drill bit and a bit of the
drill rod is projecting from the union. The end of the workpeice is faced smooth and the union
is pushed by the steady carriage against the smooth face and sealed by the large O-ring
that can be seen on the face of the union.
