As seen in MMS

More Accurate Taper Cutting with Wire EDM
Cutting tall, steeply tapered surfaces with wire EDM often creates an overburn situation if the slope of the wire path changes from the top to the bottom of the cut. A feature called Volumetric Taper Compensation with four-axis overburn control compensates for this effect on FANUC wire EDM models from Methods Machine Tools Inc.

Turning Center Provides Increased Capacity
Methods Machine Tools has expanded its Feeler FT-Series high-performance CNC turning centers with the FT-250SY featuring a true Y axis with ±50 mm of travel, which provides increased rigidity.

Digital Optical Comparator Performs Five-Axis Inspection
Methods Machine Tools Inc. offers the VisionGauge digital optical comparator 700 Series developed by Visionx Inc, which performs five-axis inspection to efficiently view parts from various sides and angles.

Methods Machine Tools Directly Represents Nakamura
Methods, a longtime exclusive supplier of Nakamura-Tome, gains direct representation of the company’s multitasking machines after a 30-plus year business relationship.

Multitasking Machine Features Fast Cycle/Tool Change Time
Available from Methods Machine Tools Inc., the Nakamura-Tome NTJ-100 multitasking turn-mill is designed to offer fast tool changes, a large tool capacity, and as many as 54 tool stations for turning and 24 tool stations for milling to reduce setup time.

Automated Cell Enables Easier Operator Access
Methods Machine Tools offers the Lathe JobShop Cell, featuring its Nakamura-Tome AS-200 high-performance multitasking turning center with a single spindle and single turret in a compact, heavy duty machine.

Wire EDM Equipped with Taper Compensation
FANUC's RoboCut α-CiA series of wire EDMs with a Series 31i-WB control features Volumetric Taper Compensation (TPCMP) with four-axis overburn control for enhanced taper accuracy on any material, thickness or angle within specifications.

Expanded HMC Series Extends Pallet Sizes
Methods Machine Tools offers Kiwa’s KMH series HMCs, which includes the KMH-300 direct-drive, 30-taper, 15,000-rpm machining center and the KMH-630B 50-taper, 10,000-rpm machining center.

Methods Adds Maruka to Dealer Network
The New Jersey company will represent five Methods lines in the Midwest and mid-Atlantic regions.

Metal Storm Thunders through Sudbury
Methods Machine Tools Inc. hosted its annual open house and mini machine tool show at the company's headquarters in Sudbury, Massachusetts, last week. The highlights of this customer event are here.

Five-Axis Machining Center Features Adjustable Work Envelope
Available from Methods Machine Tools, the Yasda H40i high-precision five-axis machining center is designed for improved repeatability and accuracy, tighter tolerances, and shorter cycle times for aerospace, die/mold and automotive manufacturing.

Large Y-Axis VMC Enables Complete Machining in Single Setup
When Sarro Manufacturing couldn’t manufacture large, aluminum plates in one setup, it installed a Feeler VMP-1100S from Methods Machine Tools Inc. The VMC cut cycle time and spiked productivity.

EDM Series Minimizes Power Consumption
Available from Methods Machine Tools, the FANUC RoboCut α-CiA series C400iA and C600iA wire EDMs are capable of machining complex, detailed graphite electrodes ranging to 6" thick with a fine finish.
