Murata Machinery introduces two Muratec turning machines, the MW80GT and MW120GTEX, as well as a redesigned version of its ML400 machine, the ML400L.

The 6000-rpm, dual-spindle MW80GT is engineered to produce parts that are 80 mm in diameter and 50 mm long, with a wide gang tool platform for added versatility. X- and Z-axis stroke measures 320 and 22 mm, respectively. The machine features the same gantry speed as the MW50GT.

 The MW120GTEX is an update of the MW120GT twin-spindle CNC chucker. The new turning center features a high-accuracy spindle for tight-tolerance requirements. The Z-axis ballscrew is centered to increase accuracy, while the X-axis box way adds rigidity. The two-piece turret coupling is also designed to increase accuracy, while its twin independent gantries deliver rapid throughput.

The ML400L is a longer version of the ML400, extending to 200 mm in diameter by 570 mm in length. It features upper and lower turrets with roller support, as well as an MT5 tailstock center with a live-tool option for small secondary holes.

Other machines on display include the MD200G, which features 30-hp, 2,400-rpm, dual spindles for effective cutting capability with 250-mm chucks and a 5-hp, 3,000-rpm live tool capability. The centralized FANUC 31 control provides both machine operation and smart, three-axis gantry control.
