A modular tooling system has been adopted for the gang and back tool posts. The wide variety of tooling layouts available, such as “adjustable angle end-face spindle”, allows for angled hole drilling enhancing flexible machining.
The addition of a Y2 axis to the back spindle strengthens back machining. This improves the degree of freedom for process allocation, and increases the maximum number of tools that can be installed to 38. Additionally, adoption of a built-in motor for the back spindle drive enables a maximum speed of 12,000 min-1. This reduces the acceleration/deceleration time to improve productivity. The machine is capable of handling 16 mm diameter bar with an expansion kit.
We adds another Citizen L12X that guarantees high precision and high speed machining together with the Iemca ELITE 220 bar feeder.
Lehisa (LERRASA HIDRAULICA SA) has received funding for the CITIZEN Sliding Head Lathe project, with file number MMH-01000-2021-122, through the “Plan de modernización de la máquina herramienta 2022”, from the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism.
