Citizen's Enhanced Low Vibration Cutting (LFV) Technology

  • Citizen’s enhanced Low Frequency Vibration cutting method utilises X and Z axis servos which are designed to vibrate in cutting feed direction.
  • The vibration is synchronized to the main spindle.
  • “Air cutting” allows to generation of smaller chips by interrupting and overlapping subsequent cuts.
  • Citizen’s LFV is very flexible allowing a wide variety of work to be machined.
  • Easy to use – Just add “Vibration start” and “Vibration stop” to the conventional program to enable the LFV methods to be used.

Citizen's Low Vibration Cutting (LFV) Technology

  • Ideal for difficult to machine materials – Chip control/Tool Life extension
  • Malleable materials such as copper and plastic, previously impossible to control chips –  easily controlled with LFV.
  • Break up of chips into very small pieces
    • Reduction of down-time/increase in productivity and profit
    • Efficiency Through a combination of vibration and Standard-cutting
    • Very fine work pieces are possible
    • Excellent for deep hole drilling

Control Saving

  • Unique to Citizen Cincom Control
  • Vibration cutting can be turned ON and OFF just by inserting G codes.
  • Vibration Cutting Path Display allows you to check cutting path on the first and second rotation in relation to spindle angle to maximize chip breakage.
