Updated Lynx 2100LY series

The Lynx 2100LY series of compact turning centers with Y-axis includes features often optional on other machines in its class. Standard features include static and live tools, toolsetter, parts catcher, and parts conveyor.

Incorporating a 15kW (20hp) spindle that rotates at 4,500rpm, along with a larger turning capacity, the Lynx 2100LY maintains the same compact footprint as previous models while the additional Y-axis and optional sub-spindle machines parts with diverse and complex shapes faster, easier, and in one setup.

Grease-type lubrication and a lateral, rear side, double-purpose chip conveyor enhance user convenience.

Other standard features include a 12-station servo-driven BMT tool turret with a half-index feature (24 positions), easy operation package (EOP) software, and a CNC tailstock. Designed with a rigid bed structure and roller-type LM guides for all axes, it’s available in 6" and 8" chuck sizes to accommodate a maximum turning diameter of 11.8" and a maximum turning length of 20".

Swiss machine workholding cartridges

The push-type F201M10 micro-workholding cartridge system replaces F20-201 cartridges allowing the user of Microconic collets to achieve concentricity within 5µm (0.0002") in production use. For use in high precision, small diameter CNC turning applications, it enables users to move more work to the sub-spindle for reduced cycle time.

The F201M10 cartridge is compatible with spindles that accept F20-201 collets including DIN 136E, Meister Swiss 136E, Schaublin F20 (76-201), Southwick & Meister F20-201, KEB (MasWerks) MC20-201, and Hardinge F20-201/4709 collets.

Conveyor, filtration system

The EcoFilter Conveyor, using two-stage metal chip removal and coolant filtration, handles large chip removal with a hinged steel belt conveyor while fines are separated from the coolant via flow through a filtration cell. In this self-cleaning design, brushes wipe fines from the surface of the filter cell where they then flow to the bottom of the conveyor. Cleats on the conveyor belt bottom run scrape the separated fine chips back to the top of the belt for discharge.
