MATSUURA’S AUTOMATION BIG HITTERS ON SHOW AT MACH 201821-Feb-2018 MATSUURA MACHINERY LTD
Celebrating 3 decades of experience and knowledge in tower pallet automation, Matsuura were the originators designing and defining the concept of tower pallet automation with the introduction of the MAM72 series of 5 axis machine tools over 2 decades ago.
The latest model of the MAM72-35V comes equipped with 32 pallets as standard and up to 520 tools, and is the proven solution for long periods of unmanned 5 axis simultaneous production. No other machine on the market has ever delivered to investor companies such a defined competitive edge; adding a reliable extra unmanned shift to their production and increased profit to their bottom line.
Launched in 2017, the MX-520 PC4 is a four-pallet automated version of the MX-520 single table 5-axis vertical machining centre model. Offering ease of use and reliable 5-axis machining, the MX delivers dynamic machining versatility, high accuracy and reliability, and
excellent cost performance. Currently, there over 70 Matsuura MX-520 machines in successful and profitable service in the UK. A single-table version of the MX-520 will be demonstrated on Renishaw’s stand H19-430.
Also on show is the MX-330 PC10 – configured with 10 pallets and 90 tools. The MX-330 PC10 is the only high-quality entry level 5 axis on the market with OEM automation integrated within the machine at its inception, and brings 5 axis Matsuura automation to within reach of all budgets. A strong performer for Matsuura, the MX-330 PC10 shares the same Sandvik Coromant Capto P6 pallet clamping system as the MAM72-35V.
The Muratec Murata MT200 twin-spindle turning machines, with three turrets and optional gantry loader, have proven to be an excellent choice for UK facilities running complex parts and various part types through one machine. All configurations of the MT200 can accommodate both bar, billet or chuck loaded operations. With flexible upper and lower turrets, all tool stations are live and possess Y axes.
In the 3D Printing & Additive Manufacturing Zone, Stand H6-762, Matsuura has a stand dedicated to its hybrid 3D metal printing and CNC milling machine, LUMEX.
Roger Howkins, Managing Director at Matsuura Machinery Ltd commented: “Undoubtedly, MACH 2018 is set to be a great show for Matsuura with the range of machinery we’re bringing to the show, particularly the MAM72-35V which showcases our experience and knowledge of tower pallet automation.
We’ve selected machines that continue to push the boundaries in terms of capability, quality, precision and of course deliver a great return for our customers. There are a range of solutions for everyone on our stand, regardless of budget. Our team of application engineers are busy creating new and exclusive machining and turning demonstrations to showcase the capabilities of both machines.”
