Methods Machine Tools will be featuring the Nakamura-Tome SC-300IIMYB multitasking turning center designed for accurately machining difficult, high-hardness materials. The machine features a 45-degree slant bed and boxway slides on all axes.

Its 3,500-rpm main spindle has a a 3.5" (89 mm)  bar capacity. A large 4.7" (120 mm) Y-axis travel and 10-hp milling function offers increased capacity, enabling fast machining with a cutting depth as much as 0.35" (9 mm). A 30/25-hp wide-range motor facilitates powerful cuts, and the turret holds 12 driven or 24 stationary tools. 

The machine features a 15", high-resolution, color-display LCD panel, which works in conjunction with a FANUC 0i-TF control for increased functionality, fast processing speeds and 1,280-m of part program storage length, the company says. It comes with the NT Work Navigator that recognizes the coordinates of workpieces with non-round shapes, forgings and castings. The Advanced NT Nurse System software package is also included, providing support for the machine’s operation, programming and production.

An "airbag" standard safety feature reduces the impact and force of a machine collision. Should a crash occur, within 4 milliseconds after the crash, servomotor-feeding direction is reversed and the machine will stop in emergency mode.

Cutting Tools Resist Heat, Hold Size

With so much happening in a busy show year between NPE2018, Amerimold 2018 and IMTS 2018, MoldMaking Technology is revisiting some of the technology that was on display. In case you missed it: At IMTS 2018, Crystallume had its Demon line of cutting tools, which is designed for extended cuts in difficult materials.
