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.


The sub-spindle replaces the standard tailstock on turning centers. A position CZi sensor is attached to the sub-spindle so the sub-spindle can then be synchronized with the main spindle. Special software allows the work piece to be transferred from the main spindle to the sub-spinale at any speed for secondary machining operations. This eliminates the need for operator intervention.

*Allows machining of both ends of parts.

Live Tool Turret.

The live tool turret replaces the standard turret on T-6 LSM turning centers. Each tool can then become a rotating tool for both milling and drilling operations. Tools can be either radially or axially oriented.

Headstock | Tailstock.

A. HEADSTOCK Heavy duty thermally symmetrical headstock design has heat dissipating fins to minimize thermal distortion during long machining cycles. All critical components are machined in a temperature controlled environment and assembled in a clean-room. Cartridge style spindle provides quick and easy replacement.


B. The 45 degree slant bed design allow chips to fall directly into the chip tank, avoiding accumulation inside the machine.


C. TAILSTOCK Heavy duty tailstock with large diameter quill and precisiion #5 Morse taper provides outstanding rigidity. The tailstock is drived by servo motor to increase the accuracy. Without the impulse when adjustment by hydraulic.

Cartridge Type Spindle.

The heavy-duty spindle utilizes high quality bearings to support heavy cutting.

  • Heavy duty A2-5 Spindle nose
  • Wide bearing spacing for high rigidity
  • Special heat treatment for critical parts
  • Highly accurate draw tube mechanism
  • Precision Labyrinth seal
  • Large diameter quill for high rigidity
  • Optimum spacing of front bearings to spindle nose for highest rigidity

All of which produces better part finish in less time.
Double-Nut Ball Screws.

LEADWELL uses only premium quality preloaded double-nut bass screws from THK, IBL, STAR and HIWIN on the machines. Each ball screw is accurately aligned parallel to the linear guid ways and anchored at both ends. They are then pre-tensioned to improve machine stiffness and reduce thermal growth. With this design they exceed customer requirements for accuracy and maximum life.

Rotational torque variations are measured to guarantee a non-binding, highly accurate, and long running components.

C-Axis option.

By synchronizing the optional C Axis with the live tooling, machining of cylindrical cams and other complex work pieces becomes easy, saving time and money for eachpart. The headstock spindle becomes a fully programmable servo axis with the C-Axis Option.


  • C Axis index resolution: 0.001 degrees
  • Max. C-axis speed: 40 rpm
  • Switching between normal turning & synchronization with live tooling takes less than 1 second.
