High-performance LT 520 CNC lathes deliver the ultimate in rigidity—with 10-inch chuck sizes. The full-enclosure, FC30 Meehanite cast-iron design features a 30-degree slant bed for excellent support to the spindle head, turret and tailstock with low gravity. High-precision linear guideways and a rigid, servo-driven turret enable increased rapid travel speeds and smooth, heavy-duty cutting. A high-torque, high-power motor provides fast acceleration and deceleration movement while the absolute encoder technology eliminates the need for a limit switch. A high-performance V-belt drive reduces maintenance and heat associated with gear-type drives.
