[LORAIN, OH – May 2021] During the 2021 Precision Machining Technology Show (PMTS) on August 10, 11, and 12 in Cleveland, Absolute Machine Tools will demonstrate the LICO LNT51S-S4 multi-slide screw machine. The demonstration will take place at booth 4013 and will be given by Absolute’s Applications Engineer Scott Petrisko.
Petrisko will show how multi-slide CNC screw machines can outperform conventional CNC lathes and even cam-operated screw machines. Not only are the LICO machines fast, but they address many of the factors that make cam-operated screw machines challenging, such as aging machines, lack of skilled labor, maintenance issues, safety standards, and more. The demo will present the alternative LICO LNTS series of 11-axis CNC screw machines, which feature multiple overlapping slides that can meet or exceed machining speed, quality, and versatility found in cam-driven machines. Each machine in the series can use up to five tools simultaneously and each slide is capable of full 2-axis servo-controlled travel.
Every LNTS unit comes standard with a turret-mounted pickoff counter-spindle and a gang platform with three backworking tools. The 8-position main turret position utilizes VDI-30 tool holders and can accept live tooling in any position. Spindle sizes range from 36mm (1.4 inches) to 65mm (2.55 inches). Every unit comes equipped with a 1,000 PSI high pressure oil/water coolant pump and tool holders for all cross-slides and turret positions, including 2 radial and 2 axial live tools. Every model offers an optional eight position static backworking turret.
