Okuma introduces LU3000 EX-M turning center

July 27, 2016 – Okuma’s LU3000 EX-M turning center is designed for manufacturing precision parts in high production environments.

The LU3000 EX-M is built as an integrated production system. This machine features a compact design and a cast iron base, in addition to optimized CNC control, motors and drive systems that are specifically designed to work together for machine performance.

With a main spindle and dual servo turrets capable of simultaneous, synchronized control, the LU3000 EX-M has the power and flexibility to produce parts with a high level of production.  Additionally Okuma offers a series of functions specifically designed to enhance simultaneous 4-axis turning – including a single programming file for both turrets, and the ability to program both turrets as if they were the upper turret operating on the left spindle.

The LU3000 EX-M, designed and built around Okuma’s Thermal Friendly Concept, is capable of producing high quality parts across multiple shifts despite changing environmental temperatures.  With its box-slant bed design the LU3000 EX-M experiences minimal thermal growth over time.
