Latest machine investment at Kolmeks Viljandi

AS Kolmeks in Estonia has invested in a new shaft machining lathe to increase the production capacity of shafts in its size category. With this lathe, we will be able to serve our customers with greater flexibility and more competitive pricing.

Efficient shaft processing

The new shaft machining lathe, Okuma LU3000 EX, enables more efficient production of shafts in its size category. Also, the placement of the machine is well-considered to maximise efficiency.

In this shaft machining lathe, we have installed the newest software OSP-300. The machine is fitted with steady rest and a tailstock from the mechanical side inside. The lathe is designed for processing shafts with a length up to 850mm. The shaft diameter can be up to 240mm, and the maximum weight can be 150kg.

The tool magazine uses Sandvik quick-change tool holders, which allow quick change of the cutting tools. The spindle has an integrated Neidlein spindle chuck, specially designed for shaft processing.
