Okuma releases LB3000-EX II saddle lathe

August 10, 2016 – The LB3000 EX-II is Okuma’s 1-saddle lathe.  It’s available with milling function and Y-axis capabilities and features an optional extended bed length that is 30 percent longer on the L, M and MY models.  The LB-EX platform enables a variety of configurations and allows the machine to be used for many industries, including oil and gas.  AT IMTS 2016 this machine will be shown cutting a gear ring.

Built with Okuma’s box slant-bed design, the LB provides rigidity and thermal stability which is important when used in facilities with uncontrolled environmental conditions.

This 2-axis CNC lathe is the largest horizontal lathe in Okuma’s Affordable Excellence collection of machines and is equipped with Okuma’s PREX motor for heavy to high-speed cutting.  This machine provides the capacity to turn and mill pipe-type products with a through-hole diameter that can accommodate larger work pieces. It’s also available in two bed lengths.

The spindle design allows flexibility of feeds and speeds to cut workpieces of a variety of materials and yields excellent surface finish and impressive metal removal rates.
