Share Article

Murata Machinery announces MW50GT Twin-Spindle turning machine. The MW50GT’s twin-spindle, twin-gantry construction is engineered to provide exceptional rigidity, high-precision processing and high productivity, by increasing productivity and accuracy while reducing cycle time in a compact footprint.

“With its compact, energy-saving design, the MW50GT is ideal for compact line operation, flexibility and versatility in manufacturing, and easy set-up change.”

With its twin-spindle, twin-gantry automation, Muratec's MW50GT turning machine increases productivity and accuracy while reducing cycle time in a compact footprint. 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 MW50GT’s twin-spindle, twin-gantry construction is engineered to provide exceptional rigidity, high-precision processing and high productivity,” explained Steve Landrum, North American Sales Manager of Murata Machinery USA’s Turning Division. “With its compact, energy-saving design, the MW50GT is ideal for compact line operation, flexibility and versatility in manufacturing, and easy set-up change.”

The super-compact MW50GT is an automated CNC turning center targeting parts that are 50 mm (2") x 50 mm (2") and features twin horizontal spindles and twin four-station tool blocks. Its twin three-axis CNC gantry loader offers greater versatility in automation, high productivity with minimum production time, and drastically reduces cycle time. This intelligent three-axis CNC gantry loader allows for quicker loading and unloading at stocker systems, conveyors, post-process gauges and post-process systems. Compared to single-spindle machines, the MW50GT’s compact design also saves space in production set up for more efficient line planning. Murata Machinery will be demonstrating the capabilities of the MW50GT at IMTS 2012, booth #S-8874.
