Marubeni Citizen-Cincom’s (MCC) Citizen’s M532 VIII and the L12X are Swiss-style lathes with added functionalities for operating convenience and improved productivity, according to the company. The M532 VIII is a Citizen Cincom M series turret-style Swiss turning center with a 32 mm capacity machine that has the capability to increase to 38 mm. Its standard 12 cutting axes includes a B axis for angular drilling and contour milling, while the 10-station turret with half index capability provides 20 positions. The Cincom L212X features the all-axis simultaneous Cincom system M70 Control (Mitsubishi Meldas 70LPC-VU), as well as a 15,000-rpm main spindle. The machine has a Y2 axis on the back spindle which expands the range of usable tools. The maximum spindle speed has been increased to 12,000 rpm to shorten acceleration/deceleration times. The company says that both machines employ a user-friendly editing function which utilizes multiline, multi-axes programming along with superimposed and synchronized control to simplify setup.
