Westec 2019: Citizen Cincom’s L32 VIII sliding head lathe is offered in three models in a modular design.
Citizen Cincom’s L32 VIII sliding-headstock lathe is offered in three models with a modular design. The L32 VIII features the all-axis Simultaneous Cincom System M70 Control (Mitsubishi Meldas 70PLC) and is equipped with a user-friendly editing function which uses multi-line, multi-axis programming along with superimposed and synchronized control. The Citizen Cincom & Miyano lathes are said to include fast setup, quick changeover and easy-to-use technology.
Turning hardened materials to grinding-like accuracies takes the right combination of part, machine and process parameters.
With macros and canned cycles resident in the CNC on most contemporary turning centers, single point turning of OD threads can seem like almost a default process decision. However, for numerous applications, OD thread rolling has inherent advantages as an alternative to cutting threads.
As demonstrated at this Cincinnati-area shop, machines that both mill and turn shine brightest when workpieces are massive.
