PMTS 2017: Absolute Machine Tools will demonstrate one of Lico's LNTS line of multi-slide screw machines featuring a 42-mm spindle with four cross slides, an eight-position backworking electric turret and the ability to overlap as many as five tools at one time.

Absolute Machine Tools will demonstrate one of Lico’s LNTS line of multi-slide screw machines featuring a 42-mm spindle with four cross slides, an eight-position backworking electric turret and the ability to overlap as many as five tools at one time. This screw machine is ruggedly built and capable of using form tools, each slide having a full two-axis servo-controlled travel. For medium and complex parts, it can match the speed of cam-driven machines, the company says. A turret-mounted pickoff spindle comes standard, and the base machine model comes equipped with a gang platform supporting three backworking tools. Each main turret position accepts VDI-30 live tooling with four live tool holders. Bar diameter capacity for this model is 51 mm with a maximum turning length of 130 mm. This machine comes with a Mitsubishi M830 CNC. All LNTS models can be equipped with an optional Y-axis gang tooled cross slide for both static and live tools.
