Company Profile

LMC Workholding is the present entity of the Logansport Machine Company which from 1916 to the present has built a reputation for quality engineering and manufacture of chucks and workholding equipment. In 1989 Logansport became associated with Matsumoto Machine Company, a world-class partner and international leader in ISO-certified power chucks, rotary tables and other workholding devices. Four years later, in 1993, LMC forged an alliance with Neidlein Spannzeuge GmbH to sell the internationally recognized line of Neidlein face drivers and live centers in the United States and Canada. In 2001 LMC entered into a relationship with Atlings Maskinfabrik AB of Ockelbo, Sweden, to sell and service world-famous Atling self-centering steady rests in the North and South American markets.

Face Drivers Cut Change-Over Time
In various applications, mechanical face drivers provide the flexibility to lower cycle times. Capable of being used to turn both small and large parts, they permit heavy and interrupted cuts.

A New Face To Parts Chucking
Mechanical face drivers offer an alternative to other types of traditional chucking methods. Using mechanical face drivers for turning applications often provides increased flexibility and lower cycle times. Face drivers turn both very small and very large workpieces, and they also allow interrupted and heavy cuts. The major benefit of a face driver is that it allows the workpiece to be completely turned from one end to the other in one operation.
