LEADWELL's mission is to constantly search for excellence and gain respect in the industry. Using our 25 years of experience, the entire staff at LEADWELL pledges to bring innovation, quality assurance, worldclass after sales service, and environmentally friendly machine tools to the worldwide marketplace.


We strive to win the respect of both our customers and world wide competitors alike.

Cartridge Type Spindle.

LEADWELL uses only top quality well-ribbed castings. Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is used on each new casting to determine the size and location of all internal ribs ensuring high torsional stiffness and minimum vibration. The cast iron base, cross slide, headstock, slide, & tailstock have over 10 times the dampening capacity of those made from steel resulting in superior cutting performance.


The headstock is a thermally symmetric design with heat dissipating fins. This design prevents thermal distortion during long machining cycles.

Easy Chip Disposal.

The T / LTC Series slant bed design allows chips to fall directly into the chip tank avoiding accumulation inside the machine. The chip tank has large wheels making it easy to move for chip removal and cleaning.
*Optional Chain Type Chip Conveyor available on all models.

Cartridge Type Spindle.

LEADWELL produces a superior spindle. Built with high precision P4 grade bearings, the one-piece cartridge ensures precise alignment for smooth run-out free operation. The massive headstock, rigid spindle, and superior bearing design, along with high RPM, facilitate heavy stock removal and precision tolerances.
Both the headstock and spindles are machined in a temperature-controlled environment is assembled in a clean room.

Machine Enclosure.

The machine is fully enclosed with splashguards and way covers. CE approved guarding option includes tempered glass in the operator window.

Double Nut Ball Screws.

LEADWELL uses only premium quality preloaded double-nut ball screws from high quality supplirt on the machines.Each ball screw is accurely aligned parallel to the guide ways and anchored at both ends.They are then pretensioned to improve machine stiffness. Ball screw tail bearing supports are integral to the castings for extra rigidity.With the design the can excessd customer requirements for accuracy and maximum life.

Box Way (LTC series).

The LTC-Series utillizes precision box ways for high hhorse power machining. The extra rigidity of the box ways provides stability for precision turning.


The heavy-duty tailstock is attached to the lower guide of the machine base. The heavy casting, large diameter quill, and precision Morse taper center provide outstanding rigidity. In addition, the quill adjustment is hydraulic adding to the rigidity of the machine.
*Optional programmable Tailstocks available on all models.
*Optional rotary tailstocks available on all models.

Tool Setter Option.

The automatic tool setter is an option on T / LTC Series machines. This tool setter has a touch sensor that can measure varying tool lengths and detect broken tools. It can be easily programmed to store all the tool information to reduce tool-changing time.
