Okuma’s LU4000 EX CNC lathe is equipped with two turrets to enable two tools to work simultaneously, promoting process flexibility as well as high metal removal rates. The lathe is the company’s latest addition of four-axis turning in the 10" to 15" chuck class and is said to be well-suited for automotive applications.
The turning center incorporates a 45-degree box bed with all-boxway construction, three-point bearing support for the spindle, crown gear turret coupling for both turrets, two power ranges and the Okuma Thinc-OSP control, designed to provide a long production life. The machine offers M-Y milling for the A turret as well as an off-center turning function. Additional features include a big-bore spindle, the company’s Machining Navi L-g, a live quill tailstock with mount number 5, a rapid override switch, a portable pulse handle and a touch setter.
