MURATEC-USA UNVEILS FASTEST-EVER TWIN SPINDLE AUTOMATION AT IMTS 2018
Charlotte, NC – August 13, 2018: Murata Machinery, USA will introduce the MW120II turning center, a new and improved version of the industry-leading MW120 machine with faster-than-ever automation. The MW120II features a high-speed, lightweight gantry loader that offers significantly increased rapid traverse speeds in the X, Y, and Z axes. With this newly designed high-speed gantry loader, traverse speeds 1.5 times those of the traditional gantry loader can be achieved. In addition to the new high-speed gantry loader, the MW120II boasts significant improvements to machine idle time areas as compared to the traditional machine. Overall idle time reductions related to turret clamp/unclamp, chuck clamp/unclamp, and higher speed shutter doors have resulted in load/unload time reductions more than 3 seconds per part. Like all other Muratec machines, the flexible automation allows for multiple machines to be combined into a single production cell, utilizing common transfer, turnaround, and feeding units to service the machines and provide an efficient production solution. Murata Machinery USA, Inc will be demonstrating the MW120II with high-speed gantry loader at IMTS 2018, booth #338844. To learn more, visit muratec-usa.com/IMTS2018.
