LT Single Spindle Series

High-performance LT Series CNC lathes deliver the ultimate in rigidity—with 6-inch, 8-inch and 10-inch chuck sizes. The full-enclosure, FC30 Meehanite cast-iron design features a 30-degree slant bed for excellent support to the spindle head, turret and tailstock with low gravity. High-precision linear guideways and a rigid, servo-driven turret enable increased rapid travel speeds and smooth, heavy-duty cutting. A high-torque, high-power motor provides fast acceleration and deceleration movement while the absolute encoder technology eliminates the need for a limit switch. A high-performance V-belt drive reduces maintenance and heat associated with gear-type drives.

The real power of the LT Series comes from the Mitsubishi M80L Series control and drive system. The control includes a state-of-the-art 64-bit RISC processing unit with ultra-high-speed fiber-optic backplane. This allows for extensive program look-ahead (675 blocks) and 67,500-BPM processing. The control software includes an easy-to-use interface with intuitive access to critical information such as editing, setup and monitoring functions. NAVI LATHE onboard programming includes a playback function for on-the-fly program edits via teach mode. The navigation system allows for complete nano-processing—from the program values to the servo commands.
