Makino showcases new vertical 5 axis MC in Nagoya

August 25, 2017

Makino Milling Machine held “New Products Presentation Meetings” at the Nagoya Branch for two days, August 24 and August 25, 2017. The event was attended by about 300 people, mainly users of dies and molds in Chubu area.

New 5 axis vertical machining center “V80S” was showcased for the first time. Mr. Tomohisa Hagiwara, Nagoya Branch Manager, explained, “there are numerous die mold processing users for automobiles in Nagoya, that made us to decide the first place to show our V80S.” The company aims to sell 50 units a year.

The machine is specialized in machining such as semi-finishing and finishing of resin molding die for automobiles. The compact spindle with tilting and rotary axes enables high speed and high precision machining. In addition, it has adopted a proprietary technology “double slant structure” with the spindle rotating axis and column diagonal. Since the center of gravity can be lower than that of a typical gantry-type five-face milling machine, it allows for higher speed operation. Mr. Hagiwara said, “In plastic die mold processing, V80S achieves both high precision and short delivery time”. V80S was demonstrated at the venue. Many visitors were amazed at the processing speed (photo).
