Okuma’s Genos L250E horizontal lathe offers an 8" chuck with an 8.26" maximum turning diameter and accommodates workpieces as long as 500 mm (19.69"). The multi-function lathe is constructed on a one-piece cast iron base with a horizontal way system. The headstock and tailstock mounting surfaces are hand-scraped for increased stability and accuracy.
The lathe provides speeds ranging from 79 to 4,500 rpm. Rapid traverse rates are 20 and 25 m/min. (787 and 984 ipm) in the X and Y axes, respectively. X- and Y-axis travels measure 160 × 520 mm (6.3" × 20.47"), respectively. The L250E is equipped with a hydraulic tailstock quill, manual touch presetter and chip conveyor. The machine’s One-Touch IGF provides a quick, easy means of creating programs at the machine tool by describing workpiece geometry with simple commands, the company says. The lathe also is equipped with an eight-tool turret said to provide indexing times of 0.3 sec., and a 12-tool turret is available as an option.

This machine can run for a long time without any operator intervention, and users can machine finished parts from slug stock or cast blanks while achieving the same high productivity as if they were machining from barstock, the company says.
