Switch beetween guide bushing and non-guide bushing type (standard) and machine bar stock up to ∅ 25 mm (optional)

Citizen L20 Swiss Type Lathe


Acclaimed for its excellent cost to performance ratio, this next-generation A20 has evolved as a 5-axis machine (plus C1 & C2 as MCC standard) for ∅ 20 mm applications, with the advantage that it can be used with or without the easily mounted and removed guide bushing.

The high-speed 10,000 rpm spindle enables optimized machining operations on smaller diameter bar material. The machining length per chucking is now extended to 200 mm enabling the number of re-chuckings and therefore cycle times to be reduced when machining long workpieces. As an option, bar material up to ∅ 25 mm can be machined extending the range of workpieces.

With its Fanuc Series 32i Model B System Control, the A20 offers quick setups and high speed, high precision performance. And with the additional X2 axis, front/back simultaneous machining is possible.
