DATE: August 30, 2016
Highly evolved horizontal lathe delivers turning, optional milling and Y-axis capabilities in a compact footprint.
Okuma’s new GENOS L3000-M one-saddle lathe is stronger, faster and ideal for cutting a wide range of exotic materials with ease. The integral spindle motor provides increased machining capacity as highly rigid guideways handle powerful cutting capabilities. At IMTS 2016 the GENOS L3000-M will be cutting a steel pinion drive for the automotive industry with Iscar tooling, a member of Partner’s in THINC.
The GENOS L3000-M has high speed milling, and Y-axis options on specific models allowing users to select the best specifications for a particular workpiece length and shape. Shop floor productivity is increased with a mounted NC tailstock that allows for easy setup of various workpieces. TAS-C (Thermo Active Stabilizer) construction is standard and automatically compensates thermal effects to maintain tight tolerances.
The GENOS L3000-M is an operator-friendly designed machine that simplifies cleaning, filtration and maintenance tasks. User-friendly features include:
A separate cooling tank for quick servicing
Easy spindle access to reduce operator work burden and maintenance tasks
Reduced chip accumulation during long, continuous runs decreases machine downtime for cleaning.
