Although George has a stellar imagination and an eye for direction, he can’t cut, bore, mill, drill or machine a workpiece weighing up to 15 metric tons.  Sure, the force might be with him, especially when Han Solo and Chewbacca’s got his back, but he’s not as powerful and precise as a FERMAT horizontal boring mill.  George stays behind the camera; we’re in front of it.

LUCAS 5, America’s new Table-Type Horizontal Boring Mill

LUCAS 5 is a modified form of FERMAT’s best-selling table-type horizontal boring mill, WFT 13 CNC, redesigned specifically for the demands of the US market.  LUCAS 5 features the newest milling and machining technology, top-quality components, and a solid, rigid construction making it ideal for both machine shops and large-scale manufacturing facilities alike.

LUCAS 5 offers exceptional machining possibilities on medium to large, heavy and bulky workpieces weighing up to 15 metric tons on a CNC rotary table.  Sturdy and built to last, LUCAS 5 is a tough factory floor bruiser, powerful and precise, and it doesn’t stand flat footed.  All functional surfaces are hardened up to 56 Rc (Rockwell scale) and ground to a perfect surface finish.

Thanks to FERMAT’s modular design, LUCAS 5 is manufactured more quickly than any other horizontal boring mill of its category in the US market.
