The L12: Handling all small-diameter work with 5-axis control
Detachable guide bushing and 15,000min-1 high-speed spindle
Machining using a guide bushing is a useful method for long, slender workpieces. On the other hand, using a guide bushing with short workpieces leaves a long remnant bar, increasing material costs. The optimum machine configuration differs according to the workpiece to be machined, and up until now a variety of different machines have been required. The L12 solves this problem.
It is a simple matter to fit or remove the guide bushing, so the machine configuration can be changed to suit the workpiece to be machined. As an automatic lathe that encompasses two roles in a single unit, it can be used to machine both long and short workpieces effectively. It also shows uncompromising performance as a machine for high-speed, small-diameter applications.
It shortens cycle times with a front spindle capable of high-speed rotation of 15,000 min-1 and 10,000 min-1 rotary tools. The L series that has built Cincom’s history is now creating the new ‘standard’ in automatic lathes for function and performance.
