Marubeni Citizen-Cincom’s Laser System L2000 is incorporated into a Cincom L20EIX Swiss turning center. Now, laser and conventional machining can be combined in a single machine increasing productivity and throughput. With the addition of an auto loading bar feed system, multiple 12-ft. lengths of material can be loaded allowing for continuous laser and conventional machining. The flexible system can be retrofitted to existing machines as well as on new machines.
MCC also displays the Miyano BNE-51MSY fixed headstock-type CNC automatic lathe. The BNE series is renowned for its high rigidity, heavy cutting capability and outstanding precision. The MSY model extends the ability of the BNE series with the adoption of an X3 axis on the back spindle (SP2) and synchronized/superimposed control for three-tool simultaneous machining. Faster cycle times, outstanding ease of use and the ability to machine complex workpieces is the result.
