The Lynx 2100LY series, from Doosan Machine Tools, comes with a range of features including a variety of toolholders (both static and live tools), a tool setter, a parts catcher and a parts conveyor. It is designed to deliver high productivity to shops of all sizes.

The machine features a 15 kw (20 hp) spindle that rotates at 4,500 rpm along with a large turning capacity. The additional Y axis and optional subspindle makes machining complex parts faster and easier with one set up, the company says. Other features include a 12-station servo-driven BMT tool turret with a half-index feature (24 positions), easy operation package (EOP) software and a CNC tailstock.

The machine series is designed with a rigid bed structure and incorporates roller-type LM guides for all axes. It is available in both a 6" and 8" chuck size to accommodate turning diameters as large as 11.8" and turning lengths ranging to 20".

  • Why Y-Axis For Turn/Mill Machines?

    Live tooling on turning centers greatly expands multiple processing capability. With the addition of Y-axis, turning and machining process integration takes a significant step further. Here's how the technology works.

  • Building on the Right Foundations

    One of the largest vertical turning and milling centers in the country will be installed in this Cincinnati-area job shop. Although installing the foundation for this huge machine was a massive undertaking, the company is building on other “foundations” as well.

  • Rolling Threads Has Advantages

    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.
