Murata Machinery USA’s MW120II twin-spindle turning center features a high-speed, lightweight gantry loader, which enables rapid traverse speeds in the X, Y and Z axes. The gantry loader is designed to traverse speeds 1.5x faster than those of the traditional gantry loader, according to the company. The machine is said to have reduced idle time by more than 3 seconds per part related to turret clamp/unclamp, chuck clamp/unclamp and faster shutter doors. Like all other machines from this company, the flexible automation enables multiple machines to be combined into a single production cell, use common transfer, turnaround and feeding units to service the machines and provide production solutions.
