Doosan’s Lynx 220LSY Series is a range of compact and high-speed multitasking turning centers featuring a Y axis. Non-lifting turret and roller type LM guideways provide high-speed performance and superior accuracy, the company says. EZ Guide i, conversational programing is designed to make the series quick and easy to set up.

The bed is a single-piece Meehanite casting with a heavy ribbing to prevent deformation and twisting. The guideways are on a 30-degree angle to maintain a minimal and constant distance from tool tip to guideway, thus ensuring maximum rigidity and virtually no deformation under heavy loads, according to the company. The slant angle also provides good chip flow as chips and coolant slide downward into the chip pan.

The linear guideways are roller type for extra load capacity and rigidity. Quality high precision linear motion guideways are used on all axes to allow high rapid traverse rates. The X-axis rapid traverse rate is 1,181 ipm and the Z-axis rapid traverse rate is 1,417 ipm.

    Vertical turning centers that use the main spindle to load and unload themselves are finding increasing acceptance as multitasking capabilities make them efficient processing centers for producing chucked parts.

  • The Evolution of the Y Axis on Turn-Mill Machines

    Introduced to the turn-mill machine tool design in about 1996, the Y axis was first used on a single-spindle, mill-turn lathe with a subspindle. The idea of a Y axis on a CNC originated from the quality limitation of polar interpolation and the difficulty in programming, not from electronic advances in controls or servomotor technology as one might commonly think.
