    Citizen’s best-selling L series machines have been relaunched with 4 different models using a common platform and a comprehensive range of tool holders compatible with other models.

    The new L20-VIII offers increased flexibility with up to 37 tool capability.

    Another major feature is the ability to switch between guide bushing type and non-guide bushing type. This feature is provided as standard; the guide bushing can be fitted or removed very quickly with a simple operation.

    The L20-VIII can be used as a regular guide bushing type lathe when machining long, thin workpieces and as a guide bushing-less type reducing material wastage. Increased main spindle size reduces material wastage and bar preparation requirement. Oversized options are available for up to 25mm diameter material.
