Precision Machining

Lutco is fully committed to produce perfection in machining, time to market, and customer satisfaction.

We offer an array of machining capabilities for producing complex, tight-tolerance components with faster throughput, reduced cost and higher quality. Our capabilities include multi-spindle screw machines, multi-axis CNC lathes, multi-axis CNC Swiss machines, vertical CNC machining centers and routers. With such a variety of choices available to our manufacturing engineers, your products can be produced in the best possible manner, saving precious time and reducing critical cost.

Typical materials processed in our machining centers include, but are not limited to, carbon steel grades 12L14, 1215, 41L40, C1018, 52100, stainless steel grades 303SS, 306SS, aluminum grades 2011T3, 7075, 6061T6 and 360CDA grade brass, as well as Delrin and Teflon plastic.

Lutco utilizes MastercamPartmaker and Esprit CAM software for CNC machine programming. From these software tools, CAM information is seamlessly exported directly to the work centers.

CNC Turning Machines

Our multi-spindle, multi-axis CNC turning centers allow us to produce complex precision components in low-to-high volumes (250 pieces minimum). Our machines leverage live tooling for off-axis machining operations, integrated bar feeding systems for speed and bar stock diameters up to 3.5″. In addition, our CNC chucker lathe can machine up to 15″ diameter blanks. The minimum volume for machining blanks is 50 pieces.

  • OD Capacities: 3.5″ round bar-stock for bar fed machines
  • 15″ chucking capacity
  • Machining Capabilities: Tapping, threading, drilling, cross drilling, grooving, knurling, milling, counter sinking, and broaching.

CNC Swiss Machines

When you need CNC Swiss screw machined components, turn to a partner with a proven record of consistent quality and on-time delivery. Our bar fed Tsugami 8-axis and 11-axis CNC Swiss automatic lathes machine our most intricate parts. Swiss machines are ideal for low-to-high volume jobs (250 pieces minimum) and for creating small, precision parts with finer finishes and tolerances to .0001 in. Single point turning economically produces complex parts in a single setup. Use of multiple axis (x,y and z) as well as simultaneous main spindle and sub-spindle allow us to manufacture to your most complex parts specifications.

  • OD Capacities: 1.50″ (38MM) round bar-stock, 30″ max length
  • Machining Capabilities: Cross drilling, drilling, cross tapping, threading, slotting, knurling, counter sinking, milling, broaching

Davenport and Acme Gridley Multi-Spindle Screw Machines

Davenports are versatile, multi-spindle screw machines that cost-effectively produce complex small-to-medium size parts with tight tolerances. Ideal for plumbing, electrical, automotive, controls, and hardware applications, Davenports are best utilized for minimum production volumes of 20,000 pieces.

  • OD Capacities: 1/8″-7/8″ round bar-stock, 2.5″ max length
  • 1/8″-3/4″ hex bar-stock
  • Machining Capabilities: Cross drilling, drilling, cross tapping, threading, slotting, knurling, counter sinking, milling

Our Acme Gridley 6 and 8 spindle screw machines economically manufacture precise parts from conventional metals in large production volumes of 5,000 pieces or more.

  • OD Capacities: 1/2″ – 2″ round bar-stock, 3.5″ max length
  • Machining Capabilities: Turning, drilling, knurling
