CAMplete TruePath software – an integrated suite of G-code editing, optimization, analysis, and verification tools is standard.
“With our customers’ desire for reduced costs and improved cycle times, this compact 5-Axis Vertical Machining Center features rapid set-up and processing of complex parts, and is a cost-effective solution,” said the Matsuura Machinery USA Inc. Marketing Director.
The Matsuura MX-520 is designed with a RAM type structure, which offers a compact and highly-rigid machining platform. The machine guarantees high rigidity, as well as, a generous machining envelope with excellent operability. The MX-520 also offers an assortment of configurations, which are ideal for all applications, all industries and all materials.
The headstock and trunnion on the MX-520 have been configures to minimize collision while maximizing tool access and reach. The MX-520 is offered with two table sizes: 11.81 in. and 19.68 in. (option). Loading capacity is 440 lb.
The Matsuura MX-850 5-Axis Vertical Machining Center was developed in response to market demand for a large capacity, high quality and 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 Matsuura Machinery USA Inc. Marketing Director added.
The Matsuura MX-850 Vertical Machining Center offers a variety of configurations and is ideal for all applications, all industries and all materials, appealing to every corner of the manufacturing industry.
“In addition to standard spindle of 12,000 RPM, optional spindle of 20,000 RPM for high speed machining or 15,000 RPM for heavy duty machining, the Matsuura MX-850 5-Axis Vertical Machining Center offers customers the best in premium machining center versatility,” the Matsuura Machinery USA Inc. Marketing Director said.
Matsuura USA will also exhibit the following at IMTS 2018:
The MAM72-35V 5-Axis Vertical Machining Center with PC32
The VX-660 Vertical Machining Center
The H.Plus-400 Horizontal Machining Center with PC12
The LF-160 Linear Motor Machine with Robot Cell
The Matsuura LUMEX Avance-25 Metal Laser Sintering & Hybrid Manufacturing Machine
“At MATSUURA USA, we continue to pursue new innovations and technology for the future. Our ground-breaking design, development and manufacture of high quality machining centers continues today with our two newest 5-axis machines that maximize new technology and provide automation solutions—the MX-330 PC10, equipped with 10 pallets and 90 tools and MX-520 PC4, equipped with 4 pallets and 90 tools,” the Matsuura Machinery USA, Inc. Marketing Director continued.
Matsuura USA will also highlight production flexibility with the MAM72-35V 5-Axis Vertical Machining Center with 320 tools. This machine features high-accuracy complex 5-axis machining with one-chucking to meet the need for a cost-effective unmanned operation. The MAM72-35V will be exhibited in Matsuura USA Distributor, Yamazen Inc.’s Booth: 338640.
Matsuura, the pioneer of vertical machining technology, will exhibit the company’s latest heavy weight vertical machining center, the tough and robust, VX-660 at IMTS 2018. This cost-effective, heavy-duty, manufacturing solution boasts high-speed, high-precision and high-accuracy within a compact footprint.
The planned exhibition of Matsuura’s H.Plus-400 Machining Center with PC12 will demonstrate Matsuura solutions to enhance production, minimize cost and increase part quality. The H.Plus horizontal machining centers are highly productive machine tools with high speed, high rigidity and high precision. The H.Plus series delivers long periods of reliable, unmanned operation, high accuracy and exceptionally efficient production.
Matsuura will pair the LF-160 Linear Motor Machine with a Robotic System to showcase the machine’s high-speed, high-precision and high-accuracy. The Matsuura LF-160 was developed for ultra-precision machining dies, molds and optical parts with a focus on small work piece processing and unmanned operation. The LF-160’s spindle with ultimately minimized dynamic runout and high resolution achieves high-speed and high-precision.
At IMTS 2018, Matsuura will also exhibit for the first time, their hybrid additive-manufacturing machine, the Matsuura LUMEX Avance-25. The Matsuura LUMEX Avance-25 metal laser sintering hybrid milling machine is a powder bed metal AM platform with subtractive machining capability. The Matsuura LUMEX Avance-25 combines selective laser sintering (SLS) along with high speed milling (HSM) commonly called Hybrid AM.
The Matsuura LUMEX Avance-25 relies on one-machine, one-process manufacturing of complex molds and parts by fusing metal laser sintering (3D SLS) technology with high speed milling technology. The Hybrid technology creates a “finished” part with machined surface finish and accuracy, without inducing the additional variation caused by multiple machine set-ups and part handling. The machine enables production of complicated parts and molds through total manufacturing by digital engineering, using 3D data.
“The Matsuura LUMEX Avance-25 achieves the highest accuracy in part fabrication since metal powders are melted and sintered via laser, while surfaces are precisely milled at high speeds. 3D cooling channels can be incorporated into molds in the single setup, thereby increasing cooling efficiency and enabling high-cycle injection molding with better than ever quality and precision, reducing costs and improving efficiency,” the Matsuura USA Marketing Director concluded.
