The LICO LNDD series are extremely productive twin spindle multi-slide mill/turn centers. LNDD machines feature overlapping slides for maximized productivity and excellent size control. These machines are offered in 4 spindle sizes: 42mm, 65mm, 80mm, and 100mm.
The base machines are delivered with two 2-axis cross-slides around the main spindle, an 8-position 2-axis VDI-30 turret that is double-tooled for working both main and counter spindles, and a full-tilt independent counter-spindle. Outfitted with live tooling on the turret (up to 16 live tools) this machine changes from turning center to a machine that can handle cross drilling, tapping, slotting, and basic milling.
Add a Y-axis to the live turret and you have a double spindle turning and milling machine (both C-axis capable) with the capability of overlapping four tools at once (2 cross slides and 2 turret). Add a 3rd cross-slide and extend your overlapping ability. Add an XYZ gang tool and the machine becomes a twin spindle (synchronized double C-axes), twin Y-turret machine with simultaneous machining. The live turret uses VDI-30 holders and can use live tooling in any position.
The LNDD comes standard with a 1,000 PSI high pressure oil/water coolant pump and weighs in at 10,000 lbs.
