Matsuura USA chose this year’s theme for the Open House, IMAGINE.CREATE.INNOVATE. based on Matsuura Corporation President, Mr. Katsutoshi Matsuura:

He described how this slogan inspires him because, as he explained, “My Grandfather Imagined what Matsuura could become.  My Father Created it. And I have Innovated it.” 

Making its North American debut, the MAM72-70V, a high speed, large capacity 5-axis vertical machining center:

“The MAM72-70V is designed to handle a greater workpiece size than Matsuura’s existing models, offers faster response times to the market and delivers an even higher productivity to meet customers’ business requirements for faster cycle times and cost down performance,” said David Hudson, Matsuura Machinery USA Vice President of Sales and Marketing.

The MAM72-70V features a maximum workpiece of D700mm x H500mm with a load capacity of 500kgs per pallet: an 11% increase in diameter/height; 43% increase in weight; and 38% increase in envelope volume as compared to the MAM72-63V.

The MAM72-70V includes a newly developed 4th / 5th axis table equipped with a proven roller gear drive for the 4th axis and direct drive motor for the 5th axis. These enhancements achieve a rapid traverse rate of 50 min-1 and 100 min-1 respectively, enabling high speed, high accuracy and durability in extended performance over the lifetime of the machine.

By improving the MAM72 structure, improved ergonomic operator access and ease of operation for setup and maintenance are assured. The distance from the machine front (oil pan edge) to the pallet center is now only 620mm.

“Unmatched in performance, and the globally trusted “go to” platform for a variety of precision led industries, the MAM72 Series enhances cost-savings and provides better positioning, while delivering pallet and productivity solutions to keep your work center efficiently producing components around the clock,” Hudson added.

The MAM72-70V is IoT ready, delivering measurable remote and real time monitoring of the machine status, condition and performance. IoT, the internet of things, is a system of interrelated computing devices, mechanical and digital machines, objects, animals or people that are provided with unique identifiers (UIDs) and the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction.

Matsuura USA will also introduce the MX-850 PC4, an automated version of the large capacity 5-axis vertical machining center:

“With cost down pressures on all manufacturers, the need for reliable automated machining is increasing globally in both established and emerging markets,” Hudson explained.

The MX-850 PC4 is outfitted with 90 tools and a load capacity per pallet of 500kg. Additionally, the MX-850 PC4 has a standard installed Universal Robot Interface to maximize the automation potential.

The MX-850 brings raw cutting power and Matsuura 5-Axis high speed finesse to within reach of every company. From aluminum to hard to cut materials, the MX-850 manages sizable and multifaceted machining tasks.

Developed in response to market demand for a large capacity, high quality, yet cost effective single table Matsuura 5-Axis machining platform, the MX-850 is compactly built, yet ensures high rigidity and a sufficient machining area and workability.

The MX-850 is equipped with Matsuura’s proven operating system optimizing performance, automation and spindle utilization.  The operating system permits direct, instinctive control as well as MIMS (Matsuura Intelligent Meister System) and Matsuura’s proprietary Intelligent Protection System for the prevention of collisions.

“At Matsuura, we have developed machining centers with large pallet pools to achieve lights-out manufacturing with size ranges never before available in the Matsuura family of 5-axis machining centers. Matsuura’s automated pallet pool machining solutions achieve more production, offering higher levels of spindle optimization and machine utilization,” Hudson added.
