Okuma’s LU3000 EX-M four-axis CNC lathe is designed for thermal stability, chatter prevention, heavy-duty cutting at high speeds and maximized uptime. The machine features a cast iron base, optimized CNC control, and motor and drive systems designed to work together for maximum machine performance.

The machine also features a powerful main spindle and dual servo turrets capable of simultaneous, synchronized control. Additionally, the company offers a single programming file for both turrets and the ability to program the turrets as if they were the upper turret operating on the left spindle.

The LU3000 EX-M, designed and built around Okuma’s Thermal-Friendly Concept, is capable of producing high-quality parts across multiple shifts, despite changing environmental temperatures. With its box-slant bed design, this construction minimizes thermal growth over time.

  • Aluminum Molds In Three Weeks Or Less

    While aluminum molds are commonly used to create prototypes or to serve as stopgap bridge tooling, they are starting to receive greater attention for production work. This shop’s approach to creating aluminum molds in one day to three weeks is the same for each of these situations.

  • Applying Turn-Milling

    Combining a rotating tool with rotating work produces a machining operation that is distinct from standard turning or milling.

  • 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.
