St. Paul, MN (August, 28, 2015) — Matsuura Machinery USA, Inc., an innovator in the development of high speed machining and the manufacture of automated, unmanned high accuracy CNC machine tools, Selway Machine Tool and Raptor Workholding Products will partner at the WESTEC 2015 in Los Angeles, California.

Booth #1747 will feature the Matsuura MX-520 Five-Axis Vertical Machining Center with a Raptor Nest multi-fixture.  Application engineers will showcase a live cutting demo on the MX-520, producing Matsuura belt buckles.

The Matsuura MX-520 Five-Axis Vertical Machining Center provides a simple, effortless and cost-effective transition for Three-Axis users making the transition to full Five-Axis operation. The MX-520 is a compact 5-Axis Vertical Machining Center featuring outstanding ergonomic design, which allows rapid set-up and processing of complex parts.

“Matsuura’s MX-520 is fully loaded and ready to rock the show.  With a 20k spindle, 60-tool chain magazine and a 300mm rotary table with (2) flat tables, this five-axis machine will showcase the advantages of Matsuura high speed machining,” said Zack Selway, spokesperson for Selway Machine Tool.

“As the West Coast Matsuura distributor, Selway supplies and services the Matsuura machines used by Raptor to make their workholding products.  When Raptor asked us to partner with them at WESTEC, our President immediately stated, ‘WE ARE IN!’  We then reached out to Autodesk HSM Works for programming on the MX-520.  As partners in the Don’t Fear the 5-axis campaign, we knew their software would be a perfect fit.” Selway added.
