Chicago, IL (September 13, 2016) — Matsuura Machinery USA is showcasing the high-speed and high-precision Matsuura LX-160 Vertical Linear Motor Machine in Booth S-8148 at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) in Chicago’s McCormick Place.
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.,” said a Matsuura Machinery USA Spokesperson.
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.
“The Matsuura LX-160 Machining Center is the ultimate Five-Axis Vertical Machine. It utilizes technology permitting high-speed and high-precision machining,” the Matsuura Machinery USA Spokesperson added.
