Toyoda experts were on hand to greet attendees and to answer their questions about the company’s latest machines and technologies.

Billed as an “open house and education forum,” Toyoda Machinery USA welcomed guests to its Arlington Heights, Illinois, headquarters Sept. 17-18, 2015, for ToyoTech: Tools and Techniques to Elevate Efficiency. The newly redesigned FH630SX-i horizontal machining center was on display, offering a standard 8,000-rpm, high-torque spindle and dual ballscrews on the Y and Z axes, along with the VTC1616 vertical turning center, featuring a hydrostatic table with C-axis indexing and a “live function” on the spindle that enables turning and milling operations to be performed in a single setup.

The company also introduced a prototype of its new TOYOPUC-TouchF2 control, which drew a great deal of attention. Scheduled for market availability in 2016, the accessible and user-friendly HMI features a 19-inch, high-resolution screen display with a variety of innovative technical assistance features.

Educational presentations on topics such as multi-axis and 3D dynamic machining and Manufacturing 4.0 were made by Forcam, Kennametal, Mastercam, Sandvik and Walter Tools.
