Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) February 04, 2012
With its twin three-axis gantry loader construction, Muratec's new MW120GT Twin-Spindle CNC Chucker increases productivity while minimizing production time for both sides of a processed workpiece to just 16 seconds in high-speed, A/B lathe operations. A subsidiary of Murata Machinery Ltd., based in Kyoto, Japan, Murata Machinery USA, Inc.’s machine tool division produces a variety of high-productivity machines for the metal-cutting industry.
"The MW120GT Twin Spindle Chucker is ideal for manufacturers who need a precision automated turning solution," explained Steve Landrum, North American Sales Manager, Murata Machinery USA, Inc. "In operation, production speeds as fast as 16 seconds per cycle are possible on the MW120GT."
Designed for complex turning applications, the MW120GT features two automated three-axis gantry loaders and can accommodate chucks of 165 or 210 mm (6.496 and 8.268 inches) in diameter. By completely separating and isolating machine bed and enclosures from the machine structure, the MW120GT eliminates any harmonic vibration transfer. Its high-speed gantry loader and turret axes also drastically reduce cycle time. Like all automated CNC turning machines, the MW120GT features automated loading and unloading gantry systems and easily integrates into almost any manufacturing environment.
