MODERN EQUIPMENT REVIEW MMS JANUARY 2018 152 Two-Axis Lathe Features High Thermal Stability Okuma's LB3000 EX-II one-saddle lathe is available with milling function and Y-axis capabilities. It features an optional extended- bed length that is 30 percent longer on the L, M and MY models. The platform features a variety of configurations that enable speed, accuracy and reliability in many indus- tries, including oil and gas. Built with a box slant-bed design, the LB provides rigidity and high thermal stability, which is especially important when used in facilities with uncontrolled envi- ronmental conditions. This two-axis CNC lathe is equipped with a high-power, high-torque Prex motor to deliver quality machining for heavy and high-speed cutting. The machine provides the capacity to efficiently turn and mill pipe-type products with a through-hole diameter that can accommodate larger workpieces. It's also available in two bed lengths. The spindle design promotes flexibility of feeds and speeds to cut workpieces of a variety of materials and yields excellent surface finish and metal removal rates, the company says. | Okuma America Corp. 704-588-7000 |
