Lynx 2100LY Features Large Turning Capacity
The Lynx 2100LY series includes toolholders for live and static tools, a tool setter, a parts catcher and a parts conveyor.
The Lynx 2100LY series, from Doosan Machine Tools, comes with a range of features including a variety of toolholders (both static and live tools), a tool setter, a parts catcher and a parts conveyor. It is designed to deliver high productivity to shops of all sizes.
The machine features a 15 kw (20 hp) spindle that rotates at 4,500 rpm along with a large turning capacity. The additional Y axis and optional subspindle makes machining complex parts faster and easier with one set up, the company says. Other features include a 12-station servo-driven BMT tool turret with a half-index feature (24 positions), easy operation package (EOP) software and a CNC tailstock.
The machine series is designed with a rigid bed structure and incorporates roller-type LM guides for all axes. It is available in both a 6" and 8" chuck size to accommodate turning diameters as large as 11.8" and turning lengths ranging to 20".
Subspindles can do much more than backworking. This article looks a various options currently available.
Because endworking is often considered only as a preliminary step for shaft work typical of the automotive industry, potential productivity gains are being passed by. Newer technology has enabled these machines to handle far more applications.
CNC Swiss-Type machines have more capability built in than ever before. Many of these capabilites can be accessed using attachments that increase the throughput of the machine tool, improve the quality of the work coming off the machine and reduce or eliminate the need for secondary operations even for very complex workpieces.
