[LORAIN, OH – January 2019] In Booth 3050 at PMTS 2019, Absolute Machine Tools will demonstrate the LND-65D-S3 11-Axis mill/turn center. With up to 5 tools in the cut simultaneously, the machine can produce parts faster than conventional twin spindle, multi-turret machines.
The LND-65D-S3 has a bar capacity of 65mm (2.56"), maximum turning length of 475mm (18.7"), and employs independent 2-axis cross slides that can overlap each other and the turret. An 8-position turret with optional live tooling and Y-axis is standard.The turret works on either the main or the counter spindle, and can perform on-center work on both spindles simultaneously. The 27 hp, 4,000 rpm main spindle is complemented by a 9.4 hp, 5,000 rpm counter spindle. With live tooling on the turret (up to 16 live tools) the LND-65D-S3 changes from a turning center to a machine that can handle cross drilling, tapping, slotting, and basic milling.
The LNDD machines are available in 42mm, 51mm, 65mm, 80mm and 100mm bar capacities. The LNDD platform comes standard with an independent counter spindle, dual high-pressure oil pumps, chip and part conveyors and tool holders for all positions.The LNDD machines are built with a highly engineered frame and slides for dampening vibration and reducing size and finish variables resulting from such vibration. The result is a stable process at cycle times that are often 2 to 3 times faster than twin spindle, single turret machines.
