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.

Heavy-Duty Box Ways.

The heavy-duty box ways are hardened to HS67-75 (HRC 50-60) and precision ground. The female box ways and gibs are coated with anti-friction Turcite B. These features help allow the machine to maintain maximum accuracy levels.

Cast Iron Construction.

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 ad minimum vibration. The cast iorn base column,saddle,headstock, & tables have over 10 times the dempening capacity of those made from steel resulting in superior cutting performance.

Rigid Tapping.

The encoder is directly attached to the high-performance spindle motor. The spindle is then synchronized with the Z-axis motion. This synchronization eliminates the need for expensive floating tap holders and prevents thread distortion and thread pullout.

Double Nut Designed Ball Screws.

LEADWELL uses only premium quality preloaded double-nut ball screws. On the V/MV/MCV-Series machines each ball screw is accurately aligned parallel to the guide ways and anchored at both ends. They are then pre-tensioned to improve machine stiffness. The rotational torque variation is inspected to guarantee a non-binding, highly accurate, and long running component. With this design the V/MV/MCV-Series can exceed customer requirements for accuracy and maximum life.

Swivel Operator Panel.

The operator panel swivels for better operator convenience.

Cartridge Type Spindle.

The heavy-duty spindle utilizes FAG, NSK or SKF bearings to allow heavy cutting. Oversized disk springs used to hold the tool in the spindle are tested for long life. The high retention force of the springs reduce tool movement, improve tool life, allow heavier cutting, reduce chatter, & create a better part finish. This spindle is prepared to easily add the CTS option.

Coolant Through Spindle (CTS)Option.

The CTS option includes an auxiliary high-pressure pump,which supplies high pressure coolant to the cutting edge. CTS improves tool life, allows both deep hole driling and bilnd pocket mining. It also allows higher speeds,which reduces cycle time.

Spindle Annular Coolant Jet with 8 Nozzles Option.

This unique spindle annular coolant jet with 8 nozzles option provides a righ around spindle nose where powerful coolant fluid is coming out to cool down / lubricate workpiece and tooling from all sides.

Spindle probe Option.

LEADWELL's spindle probe can automate workpiece setup and inspect parts.
