Senga's CNC Turning Department is comprised of 24 Okuma lathes capable of turning diameters between .25 inches and 12.0 inches. Our primary spindles are equipped with automatic bar feeders with bar capacity ranging from 3/8" to 3" diameter. Senga continuously invests in the latest technology in an effort to improve Quality, Cost, and Throughput. This translates into higher quality components at a fair and competitive price with improved turnaround times.
RAW MATERIAL TO FINISHED COMPONENT IN ONE OPERATION MEANS LESS HANDLING, FASTER THROUGHPUT, AND BETTER QUALITY.
Left and right spindles, upper and lower turrets – that’s ultimate teamwork for complete production on a single machine. The upper and lower turrets can be combined with either spindle, providing the ideal balance of primary and secondary operations. Maximize productivity in a small footprint.
With 2 equal capacity spindles and turrets, the LT Series provides full 9-axis power, allowing for complete part production on a single machine. Out LT is equipped with a Space Saver 2002 bar feeder with a bar capacity up to 2" in diameter. Having 2 turrets allows us to simultaneously turn both ID & OD surfaces; couple that with the live-tooling capability of both turrets and we're able to incorporate mill operations. In addition to being able to mill along the X and Z-axis, the LT comes equipped with a Y-axis allowing us to produce more complete parts. Add the pick-off 2nd (W-Axis) spindle, Senga now has the ability to drop off produce more complete parts. Add the pick-off 2nd (W-Axis) spindle, Senga now has the ability to drop off components, such as Receptable Shells, complete without utilizing a 2nd machine. This multi-function technology is the most accurate machine on the market making it an ideal investment for Senga Engineering.
Equipped with Okuma's high power, high torque PREX motor, this machine delivers high quality machining from heavy to high speed cutting. The operator-friendly, open architecture THINC® - OSP control makes this machine not only easy to operate, but also to integrate with other peripheral equipment. A wide variety of bed lengths, bore sizes and options, including live tooling, sub-spindle and Y-axis, means there is a configuration to meet any shop's requirements.
This lathe has live-tooling which allows us to perform Mill operations. Okuma’s LU series demonstrates the cycle time efficiency and return on investment gained by using 5-axis machines for finishing operations. The LU’s unique design allows both upper and lower turrets to move the full length of the spindle, increasing the service area of each turret and allowing for dual cuts in a single pass. With double the tools in the machine, set-up time is vastly reduced. By utilizing true 4-axis machining, cycle time is reduced by 30 – 40%. By utilizing the 5th axis milling capabilities, secondary operations are eliminated.
The LU series lathe is an ideal choice for Senga Engineering because it helps us (1) improve accuracy, (2) allow greater flexibility, and (3) increase productivity, which trickles down to our customers as Better Quality components in a Timely Manner at a Fair, Competitive price.
