Okuma’s LB4000 EX-II CNC lathe accommodates large workpieces

The LB4000 EX-II 2-axis CNC lathe is equipped with Okuma’s high power, high torque PREX motor, delivering high quality machining for heavy to high-speed cutting with a through-hole diameter that can accommodate larger work pieces. This versatile machine provides the capacity to efficiently turn and mill pipe-type products for the oil and gas industry. At IMTS 2014 this machine will be shown cutting a downhole part using tooling from Sandvik, a member of Partners in THINC.

The LB4000 EX-II is built using Okuma’s Thermo-Friendly Concept to minimize thermal growth, and slanted box bed construction, which combine to provide long term quality and rigidity. The open architecture THINC®-OSP control allows for ease of operation and integration with other peripheral equipment. A wide variety of bed lengths, bore sizes and options, including live tooling, sub-spindle and Y-axis, means there is a configuration to meet any shop’s requirements.

Key specifications of the LB4000 EX-II CNC lathe include maximum machining diameter of 480 mm, maximum machining length 750 mm, spindle nose type JIS A2-8, rapid traverse X-Z 25/30 m/min with standard power 30/22 kW.
