Marubeni Citizen-Cincom Announces Tech Center Open House
Marubeni Citizen-Cincom Inc. has announced plans for a ribbon cutting and grand opening event for its new technical center and showroom in Agawam, Massachusetts. On March 9, the ribbon cutting will be followed by an open house introducing the company’s L12 Type X lathe and new 12-mm laser cutting and welding machine. A variety of Cincom sliding-headstock and Miyano fixed-headstock lathes will be on display as well. The event will also include technical seminars presented by Sandvik Coromant, DP Technology (maker of Esprit CAM software) and GenSwiss.
The Cincom L12 is a Swiss-type automatic lathe manufactured by Citizen Machinery Co. The user-friendly editing function, which utilizes multi-line, multi-axis programming, along with superimposed and synchronized control, is said to ease setup for the most complex jobs.
The 12-mm laser cutting and welding machine employs the MCC L2000 laser system. The L2000 is completely interfaced to the L12 control with the cutting path and offsets fully managed and edited from within the control. This is said to allow for program control of all laser settings, adjustments, shapes and machining functions from a single program.
