Los Angeles, CA (September 12, 2017) — Beginning today, Matsuura Machinery USA, Inc. and Selway Machine Tool will exhibit the all-new MX-330 5-Axis Vertical Machining Center in Booth #1235 at WESTEC 2017 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. WESTEC 2017 continues through Thursday, September 14.
Selway Machine Tool and Matsuura Machinery USA, Inc. are machining an impeller component as their demo to showcase the capabilities of the Matsuura MX-330 5-Axis Vertical Machining Center.
This demonstration will showcase the machine’s highly advanced simultaneous 5-axis machining and fully utilize the extensive capabilities of the MX-330 with programming and machining times are drastically reduced. The finished part will retain a high-quality surface finish as is standard on the machine.
The MX-330 delivers machining center versatility with a standard Matsuura-made high accuracy spindle of 15,000 RPM with 48 ft-lbs. of torque. Optional 15,000 RPM with 88 ft-lbs. of torque and 20,000 RPM with 80 ft-lbs. of torque are available.
Ideal for the medical and aerospace industries and other high precision components, the MX-330 offers an easy transition from 3-Axis to 5-sided or 5-axis production. The MX-330 5-Axis Vertical Machining Center is excellent for small parts, but can handle parts up to ø13” X H11.8” and weighting up to 177 lbs.
The MX-330 is compactly built requiring floor space of only 6.1 ft. wide by 10 ft. long and ensures high-rigidity with a generous machining area and a table loading capacity of 177 lbs.
The machine’s maximum work envelope is D330 mm x H300 mm, with an optional D420 mm x H 300 mm. The MX-330 is designed with a RAM type structure, which offers a compact and highly durable machining platform. Available tool magazines include: standard 30 tool drum and optional 60 and 90 tool chains.
The MX-330 comes standard with a FANUC 31iMB with PANEL-I Control. The FANUC31iMB with PANEL-I Control is designed to be extremely user-friendly by making operating CNC machines easy and efficient.
After the significant global response to the MX-520 and MX-850 5-Axis Machining Centers, and market demand for a smaller MX Series 5 axis platform, the MX-330, provides affordable and reliable unmanned 5-axis production.
