St. Paul, MN (April 5, 2016) — Matsuura Machinery USA announced today plans to showcase the Matsuura LX-160 Vertical Linear Motor Machine in Booth S-8148 at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) in Chicago’s McCormick Place.

“The Matsuura LX-160 Machining Center is the ultimate Five-Axis Vertical Machine.  It utilizes technology permitting high-speed and high-precision machining,” said a Matsuura Machinery USA Spokesperson.

The LX-160 High Grade Vertical Linear Motor Machine is equipped with fast and accurate linear motors in all axes for machining with high-speed and high-precision. The Matsuura LX-160 is ideal for the medical and aerospace industries with exceptionally fast cutting and micro tools up to 46,000 RPM.

“A distinct aspect of the LX-160 is its ability to machine any part fitting into an 8.5” by 6” cylinder.  Additional options include: 2 or 42 pallets, 52-338 tools, maximum work piece size of 6.3’’ diameter X 9.06” and enormous part capacity of 45 lbs.,” the Matsuura Machinery USA Spokesperson added.

The LX-160’s five-axis design is not a three-axis machine with a “bolt on” 4th and 5th axis but a purposely designed true 5 axis machine.  The LX-160 is designed for the high-speed, high-accuracy market, with a focus on small work piece processing and unmanned operation with the available pallet changer options.

Matsuura’s premium machine tools provide the most advanced machining technology available today. For machine shops to gain a competitive advantage, they must manufacture higher quality parts faster, more efficiently and at a lower cost. Invest in advanced technology to gain a competitive advantage and enhance profits.
