Muratec USA, a subsidiary of Murata Machinery, offers the MW120GT twin-spindle CNC chucker. The chucker features a twin three-axis gantry-loader construction to increase productivity. Production time for both sides of a processed workpiece is 16 sec. in high-speed, A/B lathe operations, the company says.
 

Designed for complex turning applications, the machine features two automated three-axis gantry loaders and can accommodate chucks measuring 165 or 210 mm (6.496" and 8.268") in diameter. Separating and isolating the machine bed and enclosures from the machine structure is said to eliminate harmonic vibration transfer. A high-speed gantry loader and turret axes reduce cycle time. The machine features automated loading and unloading gantry systems and can integrate into virtually any manufacturing environment.

Robotic Cell Cuts Cycle Time, Improves Part Quality

Sew-Eurodrive Inc. worked with Okuma America’s authorized systems dealer, Gosiger Automation, to design an automated cell that includes an automatic, magazine bar feeder that loads 6-ft. lengths of barstock into the machine. The shop also switched to an Okuma twin spindle, twin turret turning center so all of the machining operations are completed in one setup, thus eliminating additional fixtures and operator intervention. The resultant system reduces cycle times and requires much less operator involvement. As a result, production time per part was more than cut in half – from about 5 minutes to 2 minutes, 20 seconds.
