MD+JET Delivers the Versatility of Waterjet Designed Specifically for Medical Manufacturers
MC Machinery Systems, Inc.
MC Machinery Systems, Inc. introduces the MD+JET, the first waterjet machine designed specifically for medical manufacturers. The MD+JET features a fully enclosed work area, constructed of all stainless steel. This new addition to the Waterjet Powered by Mitsubishi Electric line combines the versatility of waterjet, the precision of Mitsubishi, and the sanitary work environment required in medical manufacturing. The machine provides the speed to keep medical production manufacturers profitable.
The MD+JET’s Mitsubishi 700 Series Control provides advanced programming capabilities and unprecedented productivity from an operator-friendly, separated pedestal. Dedicated Nano control helps achieve high-precision machining. The unit is controlled on a 15-inch water-proof screen, with improved graphics and NC design to simplify operation.
The line is available with one or two heads and features stainless steel tables for easier maintenance and cleaner cutting conditions. Mitsubishi motors and drivers provide the ultimate in performance, while the 60 horsepower pump delivers superior speed.
The 4-axis Suprema’s software features Intelligent Tapering Control, which corrects tapering of the cut automatically. The CNC tilts the high-pressure waterjet +/-2 degrees which allows for increased cutting speeds in a contour. Both can achieve accuracy and repeatability of +/-0.001” per 1/2-inch thickness.
The Exclusive 5-axis Evolution 3D System uses a self-positioning device on the material to automatically maintain a constant distance from the nozzle to the workpiece. This protects the nozzle through a working range from flat work to a contoured interpolation of +/-69°.
MC Machinery Systems, Inc. continues to exceed expectations by constantly delivering more sophisticated technology and dependability.

Mitsubishi's New FA Advance Wire EDM Series Optimizes Operations and Simplifies Navigation
MC Machinery Systems, Inc.
MC Machinery Systems, Inc. introduces its new FA Advance Wire EDM Series. The FA Advance Wire EDM Series features a new M700 Series Mitsubishi control. The Windows-based system with 15-inch LCD touch screen display provides a simple menu configuration allowing for easy navigation.
The Advance Series is ergonomically designed, providing an easy-to-use keyboard and mouse for smooth operation using the CAD/CAM features. 3D CAD can now import Parasolid files, extract 3D model contours and create NC data directly within the control. 2D CAM helps easily import DXF and IGES files, revise geometry, or define additional paths with simple menu-driven icons.
The Series has the world’s first 3D adaptive EDM control, which can analyze 3D data and recognize shape characteristics virtually eliminating transition lines in stepped workpiece areas. Onboard Support is now a standard feature of the machine, allowing operators to quickly and easily access operation, alarm and maintenance manuals.
The new machines exhibit exceptionally high precision and performance and are user-friendly, focusing on cost efficiency, serviceability and compatibility. The CS (Cost Save) mode greatly reduces consumable and electrical costs to the user, and self-cleaning features have significantly reduced maintenance times compared with older models.
The Mitsubishi Experience is providing customers with the ingenuity and innovation to stay competitive on all levels. We deliver industry-leading technology and integrated solutions to help you reach new manufacturing heights. The Mitsubishi Experience is the unparalleled support of our sales and service teams, the knowledge of our application engineers, and the expertise from specialists dedicated to maximizing your productivity.

Hybrid Machine Combines Laser Sintering with Milling
The Lumex Avance-25 from MC Machinery Systems and Matsuura Machinery Corp. combines metal laser sintering technology with high-speed milling technology to produce complex parts using digital engineering and 3D data.
Milling, Sintering Machine Produces Complex Parts
Mitsubishi Machinery Systems offers the Lumex Avance-25 hybrid machining center, designed for one-machine, one-process manufacturing of complex molds and parts by combining metal laser sintering (3D SLS) technology with high-speed milling capabilities.
Large-Capacity EDM Reduces Wire Cost
Mitsubishi EDM will be displaying its addition to the MV series of wire EDMs, the MV4800 Advance, designed for larger part production and submerged cutting as deep as 20".
EDM Enables Large-Part Production
Available from MC Machinery, the Mitsubishi EDM MV4800 Advance offers larger travels than other MV series machines, enabling production of large workpieces and submerged cutting as deep as 20".
MC Machinery Systems to Offer Matsuura Lumex Additive Manufacturing Machine
MC Machinery Systems, the Wood Dale, Illinois-based supplier of EDM machines, machining centers, press brakes, and laser and waterjet machines, has announced a partnership with Matsuura Machinery Corp. to introduce Matsuura’s Lumex Avance-25 additive manufacturing machine to the North American marketplace.
Bow Machining II
What does a bow say about manufacturing? Quite a bit, actually. Bows from Elite feature trigger parts machined through EDM, composite laminate upper and lower limbs cut with waterjet, and a riser and other components milled out of aluminum on a vertical machining center.
Machining Center for Fixtures
Mitsubishi EDM/Laser’s MCV 1000 machining center is a general-purpose machine for applications such as fixtures, mold base and secondary operations.
Don’t Discount the Small Stuff
At least in the short term, the most significant machine design changes aren’t always the most significant difference-makers on the shop floor.
Scratching the Surface
Although this shop has yet to fully explore the capabilities of a new wire EDM’s unique motion system and other precision-boosting features, more incremental improvements have already spurred management to order a second, identical model.
