The LICO LNTS Series multi-slide CNC screw machines are ruggedly built and capable of form tool use with each slide having a full 2-axis servo-controlled travel. The LNTS, with 3 or 4 multi-axis slides and an 8-position turret, can overlap up to 5 tools at once.
For medium to complex parts, it can match the speed of cam machines; however the benefits do not end there. A turret-mounted pickoff counter-spindle is standard and the base machine comes with a gang platform supporting 3 backworking tools. The LNTS series offers an optional, 8-position static backworking turret.
Each main turret position accepts VDI-30 live tooling with four live tool holders being standard. With spindle sizes ranging from 36mm (1.4”) to 65mm (2.55”), these machines cover a wide range of applications.
The LNTS comes standard with a 1,000 PSI high pressure oil/water coolant pump.

How fast can LICO screw machines be serviced if they go down?
Sometimes it can be just a phone call away. Absolute Machine Tools has a large service staff across the United States that includes distribution. We are the North American importer for these machines, so we stock repair parts. We are able to fill about 94% of repair parts requests from stock. In total Absolute Machine Tools carries nearly $20M in stock between CNCs and parts.
How fast can LICO screw machines be broken down and set back up?
That depends on your personnel. All of the LICO customer make changeovers in less than 2 hours. About one-third are in the hour range. However, we have some customers who do changeovers in 15 to 20 minutes. Of course, when it’s just a program change, then you can changeover in 2 minutes. As with any machine tool, standardization is the key.
How fast can the turrets index on LICO multi-slide CNC screw machines?
Station to station is .28 seconds, 180 degrees is .6 seconds.
