Newer Technology Provides Higher Spindle Speeds & More Advanced Automation Solutions

As companies fight for survival and profitability in 2024, the latest technology is more important than ever. 

Newer technology can provide higher spindle speeds, faster turning times, more advanced automation solutions and, of course, lights-out machining.

With high accuracy, high repeatability, and the capability to run unmanned for extended periods, Matsuura’s new MAM72-42V is designed to meet production demands and maximize labor efficiency.

The efficient, powerful, and versatile MAM72-42V features a tailstock option and extra support for long workpieces and tall tombstone fixtures. Its pallet and tool options are compatible with the MAM72-35V, and, like other MAM series machines, it can support continuous production for up to 72 hours.

In a recent analysis by Modern Machine Shop, profit margin increased 23.7% for shops with machines under 4 years of age. Those with machines 10 years and older increased by only 11.5%, a substantial profit margin difference.

Matsuura and our exclusive distributors can help you  understand the costs of older equipment which include: lower efficiencies; poorer quality and precision; inferior tolerances; extensive setup times; production of unnecessary scrap parts increasing material cost; frequent unscheduled downtime for repairs; and additional maintenance personnel.

Many companies, content with the ‘way we’ve always done it’ may argue that old technology ‘works for them.’

Justifying new technology is a multi-step process that requires a thorough assessment of factors at work in your manufacturing operation. Matsuura can help you learn how to understand and evaluate the benefits and payback of our latest 5-axis technology.

Matsuura Machinery’s exclusive distributor network works alongside Matsuura to define the ideal manufacturing method and automation solutions. We oversee the complete project – from concept to production, from training to after sales technical and service support.
