Star CNC SB-20R Type G
Category: Star CNC


The SB-20R Type G offers impressive machining versatility within a compact footprint. The SB series main spindle platen includes six turning tools, two fixed high-speed ER11 spindles for cross working plus a further three modular cross power driven stations that accept a variety of cartridge attachments.

The flexibility of the SB-20RG is further enhanced by its ability to switch between guide bush mode (Swiss type) and non-guide bush mode.

The fully independent sub-spindle with C axis control coupled with driven tool capability across all four back working stations further enhances the machining capability of the SB series.



  • Standard machining diameter 20mm (22.2mm optional)
  • Maximum Z1 stroke of 205mm in Swiss mode (Guide Bush)
  • Switchable between guide bush and non-guide bush modes
  • Main spindle speed 10,000 rpm, sub-spindle speed 9,000 rpm
  • C-axis control on main and sub spindles
  • Up to 7 power tools on main spindle
  • 4 Back-working power tools available
  • Fully independent sub spindle for maximum overlapping
  • 3 Modular (cartridge) stations on main platen
