Other Machine Tools
Fiber Laser Machine”ENSIS-3015AJ (9kW)”
This machine was equipped with Amada’s proprietary beam control technology “ENSIS technology”. By expanding the power of oscillator to 9kW, stable high speed machining is realized in the whole machining area from thin to thick plate.
It also solved the problems of fiber lasers, such as the reduction of dross and bevel angles of cutting surfaces and the improvement of roughness, and realized high-quality cutting even in thick plates. The NC device is equipped with “AMNC 3i” which can be easily operated like smartphone. The machine corresponds to Amada’s IoT “V-factory”.
CBN Crank Shaft Grinding Machine”GF16S”
This machine adopts a light weight grinding wheel table, hydrostatic slide, a linear motor driven wheel head feed mechanism, and machines a small crankshaft with high precision.
In addition, the direct drive was adopted for the wheel spindle, and the weight on the grindstone table was reduced, and the position of the center of gravity was also lowered.
The main equipment was also made compact and space saving was also achieved.
The cycle time can also be shortened, and the productivity per unit area can be greatly increased.
Wire-cut Electrical Discharge Machine”UP6 H.E.A.T.”
This is a wire electric discharge machine pursuing processing accuracy. The accuracy of pitches is 1μm. This machine is optimum for making progressive die which requires strict accuracy.
The workpiece can correspond to 1000 × 800 × 300 mm (width × depth × height), mass up to 1800 kg. The table work surface was 910×730 mm, Makino pursued the workability.
The shortening of machining time and the reduction of running costs were realized, and the economical efficiency was also taken into consideration.
New Fiber Laser Machine with sorting device
Mitsubishi Electric combined an automatic sorting device of ASTES 4 of Switzerland, which had become a wholly owned subsidiary, in a new fiber laser processing machine. The sorting device uses four arms and automatic tool change to sort workpieces flexibly.
The size of the target material is 3050 × 1537 mm, the target size of the minimum sort is 130 × 60 mm. For sorting, an adsorption pad and a magnet are used. The sorting CAM is equipped as standard, and the sorting process can be optimized.
Forming Surface Grinder”SGi-520αS4-Zero3″
This machine is an ultra-precision forming surface grinder for small-sized workpieces. The mechanical structure was optimized as much as possible.
The left and right feedrate is 60 m/min to achieve high speed surface grinding. The machine suitable for processing ultra-precision parts such as small plastic die mold, sealing dies for semiconductors, and connector die mold.
Space saving of 44% was realized compared with the conventional machine.
Precision Surface Grinding Machine”PSG63CA3″
Okamoto machine tool developed its own fully automated surface grinding system using sensing technology.
The machine has self-judgment system of grinding conditions from the operating situation, and realizes grinding automation by grinding AI function.
As a new function, configuration such as steps and pitches can be automatically grinding.
Combinations with industrial robots are also possible and support 24 hour operation.
Die-sinking Electric Discharge Machine”AP30L”
This machine adopts Sodick’s original linear motors and motion controllers, and realizes high responsiveness and high speed machining. The use of new materials has reduced the weight of the machine and increased the rigidity.
In addition, symmetry structures that suppress thermal displacement were adopted. This is the company’s high-end model that equipped with the latest applications using AI technology.
Water Jet Machine”ABRASIVE JET CUTTER NC-５AX”
In this machine, the pump unit, the abrasive supply unit, and the control panel unit were modularized. As a result, a flexible layout is possible, and space saving can be realized.
Numerical Control is equipped with FANUC 31i. The use of a 5 axis control single-point directional nozzle head enables precise cutting of a workpiece of complex configuration.
It can also respond to IoT and remotely monitor operating conditions.
