LMC Workholding is exhibiting at IMTS and will display a variety of its workholding product line, including face drivers, wheel chucks, cylinders, steady rests, specialty workholding products and more. Also displayed will be a new chuck, from LMC's new partner Rotomors of Turin, Italy. This extra-large chuck is an automatic self-centering, down-clamping and indexing chuck.
The FRB face drivers on display feature a patented mechanical compensating system, which is highly adjustable and reliable in the most difficult conditions. Work positioning is maintained with optimal repeatability. The use of centers with slots also allows turning of pipe, or workpieces with holes in the end.
LMC will also showcase a variety of its workholding chucks, including its wheel chucks for passenger cars, light trucks, heavy trucks, buses and motorcycles. LMC wheel chucks can be adapted to most any type of lathe and are available in quick change and lightweight models. Other hydraulic, pneumatic, high speed, DIN, steel body and scroll chucks are also available, plus cylinders.
Hydraulic and manual steady rests will also be exhibited. Atling self-centering steady rests maintain the integrity of shaft or bar workpieces that tend to bend or deflect under unstable cutting loads. LMC Workholding/Richter manual steady rests are manufactured to customers' applications, from small standard, ring style and special steady rests to large, complex units.LMC also offers specialty workholding with Stiefelmayer clamping solutions for highly specific applications. The product line consists of workholding chucks and mandrels with integrated hydraulic compensation and other special clamping tools.
