Methods Machine Tools, Inc., has introduced the new state-of-the-art, compact high-precision Nakamura-Tome MX-100 Multitasking Turning Center, offering high productivity milling and turning for a wide array of part manufacture.
A rigid construction as well as advanced software, smart features and a 96-tool capacity provide exceptional accuracy and productivity. The new multitasking turning center is equipped with a powerful 15 HP upper tool spindle with 20,000 rpm and turning capability. A 8,000 rpm milling turret offers 12 tool stations with 24 indexing positions.
"We are pleased to offer customers a new high precision and compact multitasking turning center from Nakamura," said Sergio Tondato, Nakamura-Tome Product Manager at Methods Machine Tools, Inc. "The MX-100 is especially well-suited for medical part manufacture, and is also excellent for the high mix/ short lot production of aerospace parts and more, reducing job changeovers."
A compact design maximizes floor space at 171" (4,350 mm) length x 110" (2,795 mm) width, while heavy duty construction includes a rigid design casting and column at 37,200 lbs ‒ 30 percent heavier than other machines in its class. An eco-friendly solution, the MX-100 has grease lubrication of slide axes.
The Nakamura MX-100 features a 12,000 rpm (optional 20,000 rpm) upper tool spindle with a 2.5" (65 mm) diameter bar capacity. Total Y-axis travel is 8.26" (210 mm), and the X-axis travel is up to 1.9" (50 mm) below spindle center. The MX-100 features a SmartX touch-screen, PC-based 19" high-resolution color display LCD panel, which works in conjunction with the Fanuc 31i-B5 control for a high degree of functionality.
