J2 Machine Tool Group is the premier importer of APEC, Litz Hitech, Four-Star, and CNC-Takang Machine Tool Manufacturers for North America. J2 is now importing the Twin Spindle Lathe LT Series from Litz Hitech, alongside the highly popular LU Series 5-Axis Machining Centers. You will be able to find both the LU620 and LT2 machines running demos in our booth, where you'll also learn how J2 is able to tailor these machines to meet your specific needs. 

The LU 620 is a mid-size full 5-axis simultaneous machining center that boasts efficiency and speed in a compact heavy-duty casted frame and integral high-speed spindle. Compact and efficient high-speed 5-Axis milling is great for impellers, graphite, molds, fluid power, and medical and automotive industries. Litz also offers multi-axis turning centers available in 1, 2, or 3 turrets. The LT2-76YM on display has a dual 16 station bi-directional live milling turret, main and subspindles with full C-axis, parts catcher, and 3" bar capacity. Stop by booth 937 to see both these machines in action.


 Press Releases

  • Litz Hitech is launching a new series of integrated production machines that combine a turning center and a vertical machining center to form the TM2500 and TM2500S. This multitasking series features the combined processing technology of turning and milling, making it capable of single-mounting based high-precision machining, ideal for making small and complex geometry components prevalent in medical and measurement devices.

    The TM series will vastly reduce equipment and labor costs, power consumption, and cycle times all while decreasing shop floor space. Achieve an even higher return on investment with the TM2500S, featuring dual spindles to reduce part handling and increased Z-axis travel as compared to the TM2500. Both spindles come with a built-in motor for turning and milling functions as well as an exclusive C-axis lock system for stable positioning accuracy.

    TM Series machines feature an orthogonal rail structure for X, Y and Z-axes, and a larger working range which decreases production interference normally caused by the collision of the chuck and tool tip. The TM2500 has 22 inches of Z-axis travel, and comes standard with a tailstock. The TM2500S includes a sub-spindle and 42 inches of travel in Z to allow for longer work pieces.  Both come with 4,500 RPM 29HP turning spindles and 2.5” diameter bar capacity. The milling spindle has a generous +/- 120 degree B-Axis tilting head with 29HP 12,000 RPM HSK-63T tools, CAPTO C6 is Optional.  The machines are equipped with a Siemens840D control, with the FANUC 31i-B5 being an option for the TM2500.

  • APEC (Asia Pacific Elite Corp), known for large linear-drive gantry machining centers, debuts new 2-axis high speed, high power, HSK-63A spindle head for GM Series.  The latest cutting tool technologies and machining strategies are a great way to increase productivity within the aerospace industry, but demand a machine specifically suited to the task. This new spindle is equipped with 167HP and 30,000rpm, ensuring the G and GM Series one of the highest non-ferrous material removal rates in the market. It also features innovative direct drive motors, enabling highly dynamic 5-axis contouring capabilities. With this spindle, APEC’s 5-axis feed rates rival those of 3-axis machining centers.

    The G and GM-Series have a high rigidity structure design, featuring a symmetrical “box-in-box” structure of cross-beam and saddle. Box-in-box structure distributes force equally to improve deformation and to perform at the highest accuracy while high-speed machining. APEC’s world-class force flow design decreases thermal deformation and weight of moving parts, while dual drives ensure smooth cutting and the best part quality available.

    APEC’s linear drive design is ideal for aerospace manufacturing because it allows for large parts production 1.5-2 times quicker than standard ball screw bridge mill design. The X, Y, and Z axes feature linear motors, linear scales, and rigid linear guideways. Linear motor drives work alongside the spindle to improve production capabilities by eliminating backlash, transmission loss, and wear. G and GM-Series rapid traverse up to 60m/min and acceleration of 5 m/sec for increased overall production. Machines are available from 12’ up to 98’ in length.

    APEC is a subsidiary of the Tongtai Group specializing in the design, manufacturing, and sale of large gantry high-speed 5-axis machine tools. These machines can be widely applied to most industries from aerospace, transportation, and solar energy.

    J2 Machine Tool Group is the leading importer of APEC, Litz Hitech, Four-Star, and CNC-Takang for the North American market. J2 has taken a proactive approach to team up with these premier manufacturers from Taiwan to ensure we are providing machines that best fit our customer’s needs here in the United States.
