Daulat Shapers Models CLD-315 and CLD-630
Made in India

Daulat Lathes


Based in the town of Ludhiana in the very far north of India, the Daulat Industrial Corporation Pvt. Ltd. is not thought to have survived. Until perhaps the late 1970s, they manufactured a wide range of lathes and shapers, of which details are, unfortunately, scanty.  Two machines from the late 1960s into the 1970s are, however, known -  the DSZ lathe and Model CLD shaper. The latter, a modern-looking machine of clean design and excellent specification, was made to the indigenous Indian Specification No. 2310 of 1963 for geometrical alignment, accuracy and performance. Cast parts were made from a close-grained, high-duty alloyed iron to Grade 20 of the Indian Standard Specifications No.210 of 1962.
The oil-sump-lubricated gearbox was formed as an integral part of the main body casting, its associated shafts and gears being of high tensile steel,  induction hardened and with the shafts ground finished and the gears lapped. Instead of being belt driven, the gearbox had its drive motor ( 2 h.p. on the smaller machine and 3 h.p. on the larger) flange mounted against one face with all subsequent power transmission by gears.
Lubrication of the sideways, linkages and bearings was by a built-in gear pump and the taper-gib equipped ram slide could have its stroke length adjusted while under power from zero to 315 mm on the smaller model and from 0 to 630 mm on the larger. The ram on both models had 4 rates of travel, these being from 25 to 125 mm strokes per minute on the CLD-315 and from 12 to 63 on the CLD-630.
Able to be swivelled, the 315 x 280 mm work table of the CLD-315 was machined with three T-slots on the top and two on each side face (the table of the CLD-630 measured 630 x 450 mm) and was mounted on and rotated around a massive and deep  circular boss formed as an integral part of the cross slide. This arrangement was claimed by the makers to provide such a degree of stability under heavy cuts as to eliminate the need for the table to have a front support.
Driven by a 4-speed gearbox equipped with synchromesh for rapid and silent speed changes, the horizontal travel of the table on the CLD315 was 400 mm and 710 mm on the CLD-630 630. The four rates of table power feed -  from 0.2 to 0.75 mm/min - were the same on both shapers with their respective vertical travels being 350 and 400 mm. Each shaper had a tool slide that could be swivelled 60 each way from vertical and fitted with two rates of power feed in both directions of  0.15 and 0.3 mm per stroke of the ram.
Supplied with each machine was the universal table, a complete electrical installation with control gear, a swivel-base machine vice, a table swarf guard, a set of spanners and keys and an instruction manual and parts list.
The CLD-315 weighed approximately 850 kg and the CLD-630 1500 kg.
