Smart NL 3000BL Lathe Cell Installation

Trace-A-Matic Corporation has installed two new Smart NL 3000BL 2-axis CNC lathes in Plant 5 at their Brookfield, WI location. The identically configured centers feature 47 HP - 2,800 RPM precision geared-head spindles, a 27.6” swing over bed - 20.1” over cross slide, magazines holding 12 tools, with a part turning diameter of 18.9” x length 43.3” maximum, and a 4.06” bar capacity. The new machines replace existing equipment being retired at the 116,000 square foot facility. The newly installed cell will primarily serve the oil & gas and defense industries, as well as general machining jobs.
