Cincom Citizen L20

The newest Citizen CINCOM L-series lathes truly must be seen to fully appreciate their speed and tooling flexibility. This latest generation of L20 machine is far more advanced than previous L-series lathes. The versatile L20X is equipped with the powerful Mitsubishi Meldas M70 control for high-speed processing. Full servo axes and advanced technologies enable faster machining operations while reducing non-cutting idle time by 40% compared to previous models.


This fully-loaded lathe with 27 standard tools – including 13 live tools – demonstrates the versatility and capability that has left the L20 without peer. The new Y-axis to the subspindle increases the tooling possibilities even more. Live right-angled tools can now be mounted on secondary tool blocks. Pinch milling/drilling/turning on the main spindle is now a reality. This new model can feature 31+ tools if your application demands complex machining, making it the ideal solution for the medical and aerospace industries (among others).

No need for the Y-axis to the subspindle? Then check out our L20E-IX. Same modular concept and exceptional performance as the L20X, only without the additional subspindle axis. Citizen recently introduced the groundbreaking L20XII machine featuring a fully integrated B-axis spindle (4 front/4 back live) on the gang tool block. This B-axis addition, coupled with the Y-axis to the subspindle, truly sets the L20XII apart from the competition from a machining capability standpoint.
