MT100 for Complex Parts

"As one of the most efficient turning centers in its MT Series product line, Murata Machinery, USA has recently described the MT100 as `a job shop in a box'," said a Murata spokesperson. "There are many reasons that Murata Machinery uses this phrase to describe the MT100, a CNC turning center that was created to accommodate more complex parts."

"For one, with twin opposing spindles, this machine has many capabilities," continued the spokesperson. "Whereas parallel spindles present certain limitations, the MT100's opposing spindles allow it to be ultra-versatile, and with all live tool stations, this machine is an ideal option for parts that require a variety of cutting tools throughout their turning process."

As a multi-tasking turning center, customers can request two or three turrets per machine. The basic model features a turret above the center line and a turret below. With this design, each turret can serve either spindle at any given time, a benefit that allows machine operators to utilize multiple tools in a single cut for reduced cycle times and greater productivity.

"The MT100 comes equipped with a standard Y-axis on all turrets. This capability gives Murata Machinery customers the advantage to machine the most complex parts. Typically, this style of machine can only utilize a bar feeder, which, though effective, is very limiting in terms of part diameter. The MT100 is ultra-versatile and can utilize either a bar feeder or a gantry loader to load slugs, or both, to better accommodate parts of varying sizes," said the spokesperson.

"At every facet of its design, reliability and uptime are considered, making the MT100 a choice for companies seeking improved productivity on their complex parts. Like all of Murata Machinery's solutions, the MT100 can be engineered to meet unique part specifications," said the spokesperson.
