4-Axis Lathe Offers High Production for Automotive Manufacturing



"Okuma's new LU3000-EX turning center is known for excellence in manufacturing precision parts in high production environments and is designed for reliability, longevity and maximized up-time," said a company spokesperson.

"The LU3000-EX is built as an integrated production system with one goal in mind - to provide the customer with a machine that makes precision parts with a high level of efficiency for years of trouble free production," said the spokesperson. This machine features a compact design, heavy duty, cast iron base, in addition to optimized CNC control, motors and drive systems that are specifically designed to work together for higher machine performance.

With a main spindle and dual servo turrets capable of simultaneous, synchronized control, the LU3000-EX has the power and flexibility to produce parts with a high level of efficiency - two tools in the cut enhance production. Additionally Okuma offers a series of functions specifically designed to enhance and simplify simultaneous 4-axis turning - including a single programming file for both turrets, and the ability to program both turrets as if they were the upper turret operating on the left spindle.

"Consistent quality is a key requirement for automotive production," said the spokesperson. The LU3000-EX, 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 the LU3000-EX experiences minimal thermal growth over time.
