Marubeni’s Citizen Cincom L20 sliding headstock lathes are now available with Low Frequency Vibration (LFV). LFV is a widely-applicable cutting technology designed to avoid the problem of spiraling chips, entanglement of chips and built-up edges. Benefits include increased cutting tool life, reduced heat generation and reduced power consumption. LFV technology can handle a range of machining shapes and materials and is ideal for cutting difficult-to-cut materials, providing increased throughput and improved part accuracy, the company says. In LFV cutting, air cutting time prevents the machining temperature from rising, which prolongs tool life and gives relief from various problems caused by chips.
