Lathes Use Low-Frequency Vibration to Avoid Chip Problems
PMTS 2017: The popular Citizen Cincom L20 sliding-headstock lathes from Marubeni are now available with low-frequency vibration (LFV). LFV is said to avoid the problem of spiraling chips, chip entanglement and built-up edges.
Automatic Lathe Promotes Faster Cycle Times, Ease of Use
Marubeni Citizen-Cincom presents six Miyano machines including the Miyano BNE-51MSY fixed-headstock type CNC automatic lathe.
System Combines Machining, Laser Cutting
The Marubeni Citizen-Cincom Laser Systems L2000 is designed for combining conventional machining and laser cutting on a single machine platform, reducing part handling and ensuring improved part accuracies.
Advancing to Micromachining on a CNC Swiss Lathe
By moving up from a standard lathe to a Swiss-type machine, this company can now bid on making small, complex parts it wasn’t able to in the past, while also slashing cycle times on legacy parts.
A Swiss-Type Turning Point
The lessons this shop learned after purchasing its first Swiss-type turning center nearly two decades ago are now being applied to larger multi-spindle and multi-turret lathes for bigger and more complex parts.
Swiss Turning Center Integrates Laser Cutting
Marubeni Citizen-Cincom’s Laser System L2000 is incorporated into a Cincom L20EIX Swiss turning center.
Swiss-Type Lathe Adds B Axis
The L20 Type XII Swiss-type lathe from Marubeni Citizen-Cincom features B-axis controllable rotary tools for simultaneous complex machining.
Medical Shapes a Shop
Medical job and contract shops face challenges—some unique to the market they serve—that push them to become more efficient. Learn about the efforts this shop has made to clear the hurdles it has encountered along the way.
CNC Automatic Lathe for Precision Parts
Marubeni’s R07 Cincom sliding-headstock-type CNC lathe offers a maximum machining diameter of 7 mm.
A High-Tech Legacy
This shop’s story sheds light on the sorts of developments that continue to spur new interest in Swiss-type lathes.
Marubeni Citizen-Cincom is Ready for Company
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.
Shop's Success Turns on Swiss-type Technology
During the past few decades, the Swiss-type lathe has evolved from a niche product to a go-to platform for done-in-one production of small precision parts. This shop has evolved right along with it.
Swiss-Type Lathe Features Additional Y Axis
The latest version of the company’s L-series line, the eight-axis L20X, incorporates Y-axis movement for the subspindle side and can be loaded with 30 tools.
Variety of Lathes, Turning Centers on Display
The company will display four Swiss-type lathes and three turning centers.
What Shapes a Shop
Marshall Manufacturing melds CNC machining and 3D bending to create intricate medical components from small-diameter barstock and tubing. Customer needs spurred the shop to carve out what has become a successful medical-manufacturing niche.
CAM System Simplifies Swiss-Type Lathe Programming
To reduce setup times, this medical device manufacturer replaced its conventional CNC turning and milling machines with Swiss-type lathes. However, taking full advantage of these complex machines’ capabilities required another investment—Esprit CAM software from DP technology.
Probing Beyond Prismatic
This manufacturer has used on-machine probing to help automate setups and maintain process control for prismatic parts produced on VMCs for years. The metrology products maker recently implemented probing strategies that let it achieve similar results on its turn-mills and Swiss-types. The smaller, more economical batch sizes these machines now produce are better aligned with true production requirements.
Bringing It All Together
Shops that serve medical instrument and implant manufacturers face special challenges. Their customers typically want precisely machined parts plus the extras such as finishing, marking, assembly and expert handling of the regulatory paperwork. That’s why this shop is focused on providing more than just the machining.
Bryco Before and After
Within a two-month period, this Chicago-area contract shop reorganized the shopfloor, implemented new procedures and eliminated employee toolboxes. Here are the benefits the shop has seen.
