SPARTAN ZWL 4080 EVS electronic wood lathe
SPARTAN ZWL 4080 EVS electronic wood lathe
A professional and compact, offering generous capacities and professional variable speed.

Reinforced structure made of antitorsion electro-welded steel bar, resulting in stability and accuracy.
Well-dimensioned spindle, supported by two frontal angular contact ball bearings.
M33x3,5 mm spindle thread with conical collar DIN 800 for safety flange that is included in the standard equipment to fit all chucks and accessories.
Its powerful three-phase induction motor, powered by a 230V high-performance inverter, in combination with a 3 Poly-V pulley system, ensures a constant speed and power control at any speed.
The electronic variable speed function enables the user to choose the best conditions for the work to be performed and to eliminate vibrations.

Variable speedZWL4080_2.png
The lathe features three ranges of speed to give a steady power during working. The first step
(from 95 to 560 RPM) is ideal when you turn big, irregular shaped workpieces, the second step
(from 340 to 2.050 RPM) is suitable for medium size workpieces and the third one (from 500 to
3.000 RPM) is suitable for any small project.
Furthermore, if you set the potentiometer at a range between 0 and 15, it is possible to turn at
a lower speed in order to apply waxes and oils to your workpiece in an easy, safe way.
9 mm hollow tailstock to enable long hole boring.
Quick release levers, 100 mm stroke on the tailstock

Professional Inverter
A power inverter device allows you to change the speed through the variation of the frequency
(Hz) but to maintain constant the power of the engine.
Another important function is the slow start and the gradual slowing down of the machine when
switching off: the device regulates the stop of the rotation in 10 seconds. In case of lack of electricity, it activates an emergency stop.

ZWL4080_9.pngErgonomicSwivel headstock with presets at 40°, 90°, 110° and 180°, that enables to set the head in the most convenient position to suit the item being turned outboard and to turn very large diameter projects. Alignment with the tailstock is ensured by a locking screw, that has to be loosened in order to turn the headstock itself.

 Tool rest
Created with a new design and made from specifically selected materials. Its bar is made of high resistance steel in order to offer a longer durability in comparison with cast iron tool rests as well as abrasion resistance and strength. Furthermore, it is longer for more support especially when hollowing out the inside of workpieces.


How to Block the Movement of the Spindle
Assembling and disassembling operations must be safe. For this reason, included in the pack, there is a Ø 8 mm bar that can be obliquely inserted for stopping the rotatory movement of the spindle.





ZWL4080_3.pngHeavy-duty Headstock
The headstock is removable and solid to give stability during the work.
Since it is heavy (Kg 46), the ejector bar used to take the drive centre away from the spindle, can be also inserted into the headstock itself in order to help its lifting, in order to carry out assembly and installation work safely (2 people required).




 ZWL4080_2.pngControl panel
The lathe features a clear and essential dashboard that allows you to turn the machine on in the rotatory direction required. The potentiometer permits to choose the speed that is shown on a digital readout.
No other electric cables rather than the power cord come out from the headstock for an easy and fast assembly.

100 mm stroke on the tailstock with laser marked graduated scale divided into millimetres. 160 mm diameter hand wheel and quick release lever.


Designed and produced by Gamma Zinken as per modern woodturner’s requirements.
