New production turning centre with fully integrated self-load and unload

New production turning centre with fully integrated self-load and unload

Added to MTDCNC by MTDCNC on 03 October 2012

A high production turning centre with fully integrated self-load and unload for parts requiring up to 100 mm turning diameter by 80 mm turning length involving billet, forged blanks or pre-machined components is launched by Citizen Machinery UK from its Ocean Cincom model range at the UK Open House 9-11 October 2012.

The Ocean Cincom LZ-series is very compact due to the arrangement of the loading mechanism, turret and spindle which incorporate an infeed and out-feed conveyor.  Also this configuration allows chips to fall directly into the machine base where they are quickly ejected.

The Ocean Cincom LZ-series design incorporates a novel X-axis cross feed and Z-axis forward-stroke of the spindle which operates simultaneously with the integrated double-gripper load/unload units to create a fast operational sequence.

The machine series covers two 8 inch chuck capacities with the option of ±35 mm of Y-axis crossfeed to the turret.  The LZ-01R2 and Y-axis variant 01RY2 has a 70 mm maximum turning diameter as well as a 50 mm collet capacity.  The main spindle is 7.5 kW, 6,000 revs/min and a 12 station (six driven) tool position turret uses a 2.5 kW, 4,000 revs/min motor.  The Y-axis travel is 245 mm and Z-axis 240 mm.  Both the R2 and Y2 versions will accommodate parts weighing up to 0.7 kg per gripper. 

Meanwhile, the larger 100 mm turning diameter LZ-02R2 and LZ-02RY2 variants have a 54 mm collet capacity with a 10 station (five driven) tool position turret with a 2.5 kW, 4,000 revs/min motor.  The main spindle is 11 KW, delivering 5,000 revs/min.  The x-axis stroke is 300 mm and Z-axis 240 mm with a maximum component weight of 1.5 kg per gripper. 

By utilising the Y-axis in conjunction with C-axis spindle positioning combined production cycles have the flexibility to include slotting, off-centre face and cross-drilling and tapping plus contouring on the periphery as well as the end face of a component.
