NOVA Neptune Benchtop Midi Lathe

The new in 2024, TeknaTool brand NOVA Neptune brings the advanced technology, performance and versatility found on other larger full-size Intelligent Direct Drive DVR lathes to the benchtop wood lathe user

Smart Direct Drive

The lathe spindle is the rotor of Neptune’s smart, direct drive digital motor from Striatech. With 1.5HP, Neptune provides smooth high torque power throughout its 100 to 4000 RPM range with no transmission power loss and seamless speed adjustments without the inconvenience of changing belts & pulleys.

Intelligent Computer Control

With the machine reading the position of the spindle thousands of times per second, Neptune’s CPU will increase or decrease power to maintain the exact RPM you choose. From roughing to shaping to finishing, a constant RPM makes turning a joy, giving you enough power for the best consistent results.

World Class Safety Features

Only NOVA DVR products can be programmed for ultimate safety, including Electronic Braking that will bring your workpiece to a holt in seconds, Chisel Jam Detection; once a jam is detected, the unit will cut all motor power. Electronic Machine Lockout prevents unauthorised access until the lathe is unlocked.

Swiveling, Sliding Headstock

The 360° swiveling headstock locks at any position and includes locating pin detents at -45°, -22.5°, 0°, 22.5°, 45°, 90°, and 180°. The head of Neptune slides between the full length of the bed.

Customisable Speed Settings

With 4 customisable speed settings, you can quickly and gradually increase or decrease the speed based on your project’s requirements. You can change them again within seconds for the next project or set them for basic rough, shaping, fine detail and finishing steps based on your experience.

Smart Speed & Ramp Settings

By selecting the Rough or Fine functions and selecting the diameter of your workpiece, Neptune will ramp up your RPM to a safe speed for the size of the material you’re turning. There’s even an unbalanced or large load (XL) setting allowing the machine to safely bring the project to a steady and even speed.
