Try..

--

DECLARE @ AS CHAR(14) = '11272006124606'

SELECT CAST(RIGHT(SUBSTRING(@,1,8),4) + '-' + LEFT(SUBSTRING(@,1,8),2) 
+ '-' + SUBSTRING(SUBSTRING(@,1,8),3,2) AS DATE)

--

You can also use (in 2012+):
declare @dt as char(14) = '11272006124606'
select convert(date, stuff( stuff(left(@dt,8),5, 0, '/') , 3, 0, '/'), 101)
