This machine tool is ideal for the precise cutting of oil field pipe and other applications that demand handling long, cylindrical pipe and tubing in sometimes a remarkably harsh, high production environment.
The L800A Big Bore Heavy Duty CNC Turning Center from Hyundai WIA America Corporation (Carlstadt, NJ) has a 12.5 in thru hole capacity that is perfect for machining large cylindrical parts required in the booming oil and gas industry.
Along with the L800A Big Bore Heavy Duty CNC Turning Center, Hyundai WIA builds state-of-the-art CNC machine tools, robotics and gantry systems that help manufacturers improve their competitive advantage.
A dual chuck design (one on each end of the spindle) offers superior support of the workpiece — especially on long shafts or pipe. Standard capacities include a 41.3 in swing over the bed; a 32.3 in swing over the carriage; a max. turning diameter of 36.2 in; a max. turning length of 65 in and a 12.58 in spindle bar capacity.
The L800A Big Bore is yet another example of leveraging Hyundai WIA’s knowledge as a leading designer and builder of high-production machine tools.
The 45-deg slant bed with hardened and ground box ways has been designed using finite element analysis (FEA) to ensure powerful cutting and agility and is composed of meehanite cast iron to minimize deformation when performing heavy-duty cuts.
