This is why L&Z Tool & Engineering invested in this 40 taper OKK

Why would a 70-year-old third generation mould-making company invest in the OKK machine? Tony Gunn of MTDCNC and Lance La Marca of L&Z Tool & Engineering talk about the differences in precision and rigidity of a 40-taper machine versus 50-taper machine. Knowing that 50 taper spindle machines are traditionally more rigid and take an aggressive cut, L&Z were hesitant about going for a 40-taper spindle. Lance says his company took a leap of faith after the guys at Maruka suggested the 40 taper spindle OKK would be a great fit. The combination of higher RPM, horsepower, torque, and precision delivered beautiful finishes, precision cuts, and outstanding rigidity. L&Z have some of the best machines on the planet with a firm belief that the combination of great skills, machines, and customers results in tremendous success.
