St. Paul, MN (October 3, 2018, 2018) — Exhibits at Matsuura’s booth at AMB IN Stuttgart included the company’s latest high-quality machining centers including: the MX-330 5-Axis Vertical Machining Center; the H.Plus-504 Horizontal Machining Center; and the LF-160 Linear Motor Machine.
Highlighting the MX-series, Matsuura showcased the MX-330 5-Axis Vertical Machining Center. The MX-330 has a compact frame, yet provides sufficient machining area for handling workpieces up to a maximum size of D420 mm x H320 mm.
In addition to featuring the fundamental concept of the MX-series, the MX-330 has introduced a new concept – simple automation. This concept follows the motto: The smaller the workpiece, the shorter the machine time. And, for the first time, an MX-machine comes with a package option consisting of a PC10 (floor pallet system) and a 90-tool magazine, all available for a good price, making it the option for manufacturers considering 5-axis machining with automation.
Matsuura also exhibited the H.Plus-504 Horizontal Machining Center, the latest addition of the H.Plus-series. It employs the newly developed Fanuc operating system iHMi, which improves operability, reduces non-cutting time and facilitates set-up, operation and maintenance whilst saving labor and energy. The machine is equipped with a tool storage capacity of 160 tools (matrix-type magazine). In addition, Matsuura’s dynamic clamp system and automatic acceleration and deceleration control contribute intelligently to a shorter cycle/indexing time and higher productivity.
The LF-160, the third machine at the show, is designed for machining with high speed and high precision. In comparison to conventional models, cutting time is reduced up to 60%. The spindle employs a unique balancing method to enable a high spindle speed of 46,000/min, while featuring low noise and low vibration. The machine can handle workpieces with sizes of up to D160mm x H230mm and 20kg.
