The Hyundai-Wia L500LMA series turning center is designed for heavy-duty cutting. Featuring a 21" chuck, the series fills the gap between the company’s L400 series (15" chuck) and L600 series (24" chuck).
With a through-hole of 181 mm (7.1"), the main spindle features double-row precision roller bearings at the rear and angular bearings at the front that promote accurate cutting at speeds at fast as 1,500 rpm at 40 hp, producing 2,990 foot-pounds of torque. A spindle oil chiller is used to maintain ambient temperature.
The L500LMA also is equipped with a wider X-axis guideway for precise and rigid heavy-duty cutting. Maximum X-axis travel is 400 mm with rapid traverse of 20 m/min., while Z-axis travel is 2,210 mm with rapid traverse of 18 m/min. The built-in, MT #5 tailstock quill taper has a quill diameter of 132 mm (5.2").
