LCS 305

Previous Next

The LCS 305 with 5 axes is specifically designed for the automatic production of larger and multi-tooth diamond cutting tools. The CNC machine with five synchronous axes is characterized by a particularly intelligent machine concept and highly dynamic axes for maximum precision and speed.

The LCS disposes of consistent temperature control with water-cooled linear and torque motors (+/- 0.1°C) and a mineral casting machine bed for more stability and reduced vibrations.

A fully automatic offset calibration system integrates laser-nozzle alignment, automatic jet angle correction, laser power meter and touch probe.

Tools can be exchanged with a very high accuracy thanks to the HSK 63 tool holder.

Materials

Hard materials: Polycrystalline CBN (PcBN), polycrystalline diamond (PCD), single crystalline diamond (SCD), chemical-vapor-deposition (CVD) diamond, natural diamond (ND), tungsten carbide (WC)

Metals: Superalloys, stainless steel, aluminium, copper, titanium, nickel etc. 

Ceramics: Ceramic-matrix composites (CMCs), silicon carbide (SiC), silicon nitride (SiN), zirconia (ZrO2), HTCC/LTCC (high temperature and low temperature co-fired ceramic), aluminum nitride (AlN), aluminum oxide (Al2O3) 

Operations

3D cutting, shaping, drilling, slotting, grooving, trenching, milling, slicing, edge grinding (K-land edges, single or multiple clearance angles) engraving, profiling 

 

Key Benefits

  • Sharp and Smooth
    • Smooth cutting surfaces and sharp edges (Ra as low as 0.2 μm)
    • Cylindrical beam resulting in parallel kerfs (no V-shape)
    • Virtually no heat impact thanks to water jet cooling capability
  • Fast and Accurate
    • Finnish cutting of 1.6 mm PCD and cemented carbide in 3 mm/min. 
    • High mechanical precision with a tolerance of               +/- 3 μm
    • Very small kerf width (down to 30 μm)
  • Clean and Easy
    • Clean surfaces and no depositions
    • No post treatment required
    • No focus control necessary due to long working distance
