Muratec USA, a subsidiary of Murata Machinery, offers the MW120GT twin-spindle CNC chucker. The chucker features a twin three-axis gantry-loader construction to increase productivity. Production time for both sides of a processed workpiece is 16 sec. in high-speed, A/B lathe operations, the company says.
 

Designed for complex turning applications, the machine features two automated three-axis gantry loaders and can accommodate chucks measuring 165 or 210 mm (6.496" and 8.268") in diameter. Separating and isolating the machine bed and enclosures from the machine structure is said to eliminate harmonic vibration transfer. A high-speed gantry loader and turret axes reduce cycle time. The machine features automated loading and unloading gantry systems and can integrate into virtually any manufacturing environment.
