Anticipating a great IMTS 2012, Marubeni Citizen-Cincom (MCC) is rolling out the red carpet for show visitors interested in precision machined parts in the 2-mm- to 64-mm- diameter range. The company has expanded its booth by 8,000 square feet to make room for its extensive Swiss-type and fixed headstock machine tool lines and for the expected crowds interested in its technology.
The new, bigger booth features four production zones concentrating on medical, aerospace, technology and job shop applications. With 13 Cincom and Miyano machines under power, some equipped with robotic automation systems, visitors to the booth can experience how these versatile machine tools can help meet the demands of U.S. manufacturers. Technical presentations are available as needed, along with video presentations of the machines in action.
A highlight of the booth is a new Cincom M432VIII Swiss-type lathe, which shares the stage with the company’s flagship L20X machine. The Miyano BNA-42MSY multi-tasking bar machine also is featured on the stand.
The M432VIII incorporates a third Y axis on the back tool post and a B axis with rotary tool capability on the gang tool post. Located on the slant axis in reference to the Y-axis direction, the B axis incorporates rotary tools and can be used to produce multiple angular holes in one setup by continuously changing angles.
Contouring with simultaneous four-axis control is also possible on this machine. The back tool post can accommodate the holder at three positions (two for rotary and one for fixed tools), and as many as nine tools can be included.
The multi-tasking Miyano BNA-42MSY features a Y-axis-equipped turret and an X2 axis on the back spindle for simultaneous machining on each spindle. The machine’s CNC offers Cincom Control technology for program optimization to reduce idle time and aide in faster setups.
