St. Paul, MN (February 9, 2017) — The Matsuura MAM72-100H Horizontal Machining Center machines the most challenging materials for sustained periods of time, maintaining the highest of accuracy and repeatability.
“The MAM72-100H was designed with FEM analysis utilizing 80 years of Matsuura machine proficiency, the MAM72-100H is the 5-axis platform for the most arduous environments, where quality and sustained performance is paramount,” said a Matsuura Machinery USA Inc. Spokesperson.
The MAM72-100H five-axis horizontal machining center is the largest in the MAM72 series and is the company’s largest state-of-the art 5-axis manufactured in terms of capacity and size.
Designed in response to user requests for a MAM72 with a larger work envelope and even greater processing capacity, the MAM72-100H features x-y-z travels of 41.33″ x 36.22″ x 37.79″, an A-axis table that tilts between -120 and +30 degrees, and full 360 degree c-axis rotation. The A-/ B-axis table, with a direct drive motor, turns at a maximum feed rate of 50 minutes-1 (A-axis; Tilting axis) or 75 minutes-1 (B-axis; rotating axis), ensuring high speed and high precision. The MAM72-100H has the capability to handle a maximum work size of 39.37″ deep and 30.31″ high, and a maximum weight of 1,719 lbs. Equipped with a high-torque 50 taper spindle, the MAM72-100H is suitable for cutting hard-to-machine alloys, such as titanium and inconel.
The MAM72-100H features the next-generation Matsuura’s Intelligent Meister System (MIMS), which monitors the overall production process. MIMS ensures reliable operation, high product quality, simple data management and low power consumption. In addition, the automatic tool changer is equipped with a drum-type tool magazine driven by a servomotor for quick tool indexing, low noise and low vibration. A variety of ATC / APC options are also available.
“The MAM72-100H’s larger work envelope and ability to cut challenging materials makes it suitable for machining large-sized, complex parts that are common in the aerospace and energy industries. The MAM72-100H is the 5-axis machining platform solution for the production of close tolerance, extra-large components requiring long hours of reliable unmanned operation,” the Matsuura Machinery USA Inc. Spokesperson said.
Like all of Matsuura’s five-axis machines, the MAM72-100H provides high quality, high speed simultaneous five-axis machining. Designed utilizing FEM analysis for maximum rigidity, the MAM72-100H offers a uniquely stable machining platform when compared to machines in its capacity class range. The MAM72-100H can process a wide array of materials and offers users advanced, proven unmanned operations.
“The MAM72 series is recognized for its reliable, high-speed, unattended machining. The MAM72-100H’s ability to machine larger parts makes it the definitive solution for aircraft, energy and other industries with larger machining requirements,” the Matsuura Machinery USA Inc. Spokesperson added.
The Matsuura MAM72-100H Five-Axis horizontal machining center allows cutting on all five sides in one operation and can achieve process integration and high-accuracy complex 5-Axis machining to meet the need for unmanned operation. This substantial machining center is one of very few to use linear motor, Five-Axis technology. The Matsuura MAM72-100H Horizontal Machining Center will be exhibited with the high-torque, #50 Taper Spindle.
