Cartridge Type Spindle.

The heavy-duty spindle utilizes FAG or NSK ABEC-7 bearings to support heavy cutting.

All of which produces better part finish in less time.





  • 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
LTC-25iLM with C-Axis Servo option.

By synchronizing the live tool turret and the C-axis; the LTC-25iLM can machine complex cams and slots on both the sides and end of parts. It can also drill and tap holes on both the sides and the end of parts.

Superior Construction.






  • All major components of LTC-25iL series turning centers are cast iron which has 10 times the dampening capacity of steel resulting in superior cutting performance.
  • Castings are well ribbed based on finite Element Analysis (FEA) for the size and location to ensure high torsional stiffness and minimum vibration
  • 45° slant bed combines superior machining accuracy with easy access to the workpiece.

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.


Heavy duty tailstock with large diameter quill and precision Mores taper provide outstanding rigidity.

Quill adjustment is hydraulic.

Laser Calibration.

Lasers are used to measure the positioning accuracy of every machine over the full travel of each axis. Leadwell uses these measurements ot compensate any axis error so that each machine meets the high accuracy requirements.

Each machine is shipped with a positioning accuracy chart.

Machine Geometric Checking.

Precision indicators are used to verify that spindle run-out and headstock to tailstock alignment meet all specifications.

Cutting and Coolant testing.

Each machine must complete rigorous cuttings test to ensure machine integrity. Coolant tests guarantee that all components are working properly and that machine 100% leak proof.

48 hrs Non-stop Realiability test.

Each machines is cycled for 48 hrs to help ensure the highest reliability.
