LU-S1600 turning center
July 25, 2014http://www.Okuma.com
At IMTS 2014 Okuma will introduce its new LU-S1600 turning center, the company’s latest evolution of 4-axis lathes in the 8-inch chuck class. Two tools work simultaneously providing process flexibility as well as high metal removal rates in a compact floor space. Available with THINC-OSP or FANUC control systems, this machine capitalizes on the deep experience of Okuma, a leading builder of 4-axis lathes. At IMTS this machine, displayed with an extended bed, will be shown cutting a driveshaft part using Kennametal tooling with dual steady configuration.
The LU-S1600 uses a new 60° slant bed base casting with all box way construction, with three separate sets of guide ways for upper turret, lower turret and tailstock. For added capability, optional steady rests are available that can be mounted on either the lower turret or tailstock guide ways. This machine provides the foundation for high production processing with Okuma quality and longevity, and is well suited for the automotive industry.
