MC Machinery welcomes LT-400 CNC Lathe to its turning lineup

August 8, 2014 12:26:33 PM

MC Machinery Systems is excited to introduce the new LT-400 CNC Lathe. Designed for machining hard materials, the machine’s inherent versatility and rigidity also covers a wide range of other applications. Durability is a key design point, providing long-term performance and reliability.

The one-piece machine casting is constructed of FC30 Mehanite cast iron, creating a stable and precise structure with the following top-of-the-line features.

  • A 30-degree slant bed provides an excellent support base for the spindle head, turret and tail stock.
  • The X and Z axes use heavy-duty, zero-backlash linear roller style guide ways to ensure high rigidity, with high-speed feed rates of 787 inches per minute in the X axis and 945 inches per minute in the Z axis.
  • Super precise P4-grade spindle bearings maximize stability and ensure extreme cutting accuracy over a long service life.
  • The servo motor drives a robust servo turret, providing an adjacent tool-to-tool time of 0.9 seconds and opposite tool change time of 2 seconds.
  • The chip removal system easily removes the large volume of chips generated by the turning process.  The lathe features a full-enclosure design preventing chips and coolant from splashing outside the machine while providing a safe and clean work environment.
  • A state-of-the-art Mitsubishi M70 CNC control utilizes a 64-bit RISC processing hard-drive unit with an ultra high-speed fiber-optic backplane.

See the LT-400 CNC Lathe in action and learn more about MC Machinery System’s all-new turning line at IMTS Booth N-6825 on September 8-13, 2014.
