Engine Lathes combine accuracy, simplicity and affordability to bring you a proven industry leader. Tested under the most demanding work conditions, this lathe turns rings around other lathes in their class. LG520DS Series Lathes have just the right amount of engineering to afford simplicity of operation, coupled with plain and simple rugged reliability. In addition, built in safety features with the safety interlock eliminating the simultaneous engagement of the feed and threading motion, place these machines in a field of their own - unparalleled in performance.
A few of the outstanding features on the LG520DS Series Lathes are a cross ribbed headstock for added strength and stability, with anti-friction mounted shafts and dynamically balanced components; hardened and ground alloy steel gears, shafts and splines, and an oversized precision chrome alloy spindle with a big 80mm thru hole that is mounted in double row radial roller bearing in the front, single row radial thrust ball bearing and single direction thrust ball bearing at the rear and radial ball bearing in the middle. These large spindle bearings give the LG520DS Series Lathe greater radial and thrust capacities ensuring very precise turning capabilities.
Available in 1000mm, 1500mm and 2000mm center distances, the LG520DS Series Engine Lathe feature hardened and precision ground bed ways on a heavy one-piece close grain cast bed that is fully ribbed for maximum stability and even thermal expansion. Standard on every machine is a quick-change gearbox for cutting Metric, Module, and Diametrical Pitch threads as well as standard American threads.
