With the ability to combine the upper and lower turrets with either spindle, the LT3000 EX enables process flexibility, very high feature utilization and the ability to complete the greatest amount of primary and secondary machining possible in one compact platform. The machine can be specified in a large number of different configurations to maximize the benefits for specific circumstances. It is available in either two or three turret versions, with or without Y axis, to provide best process balance and production throughput and integrated operations. This multi-function horizontal twin-spindle machine integrates lathe and mill/drill functions on all turrets. Thirty two tool stations are available for either mill or lathe function for the twin-turret machine and forty eight for the 3-turret machine.
