Comco's LA3250 advanced lathe is designed to eliminates a manufacturer’s need for masking parts because of the precise delineation this automated platform can provide.
Manufacturers typically mask product surfaces in order to separate the areas that needed to have a polished surface from that which needed to be textured, Comco says, adding that the LA3250 eliminates that need, and prevents overblasting, saving production time and money. Manufacturers in the medical, dental, aerospace, precision machining and electronic industries will be able to use this new technology.
Additional highlights of the LA3250 include its ability to be configured with multiple spindles for increased productivity and “smart tooling,” which ensures the proper blast head and part tooling are installed to match the blast routine selected. This programming controls all aspects of the process, allowing for part-to-part consistency and repeatability.
