The company will display four Swiss-type lathes and three turning centers. The latest iteration of the Cincom L-series, the L20X, incorporates a Y2 axis on the subspindle side, which enables a variety of extra tooling on both the front and back side of the part. It also enables more overlapping of machining on the front side of the workpiece. The eight-axis, simultaneous machine can accommodate more than 30 tools.
The company will demonstrate bone screw machining on the A20VII, which will employ thread whirling along with 80,000-rpm live spindles, 0.02" end mills and 2,000-psi HP coolant to produce a hexalobe feature. The full-featured Cincom package includes the machine, whirling head, bar feeder, mist collection and HP systems, all of which are supplied and supported by MCC.
In addition, a creative machinist tool, the steel tap wrench, will be run on the A32VII and a stainless steel spool will run on the K16EVII.
The Miyano ABX-51THY multitasking turning center is equipped with a Fanuc 31i control system, which features a 10.4" full color screen and enhanced user features. With three turrets and three Y-axes, the machine reduces cycle time for complex parts. Live tooling for all stations optimizes balanced milling, and high-rigidity left and right spindles accept heavier cutting conditions. The turrets are designed for stable cutting, whether turning, drilling or milling. The BNA-42SY and BNA-42DHY will also be on display.
Robot-Fed Multitasking Lathe with Conveyor
This machine can run for a long time without any operator intervention, and users can machine finished parts from slug stock or cast blanks while achieving the same high productivity as if they were machining from barstock, the company says.
