Flexibility in High Volume Production Work



Kitamura Machinery, a manufacturer of precision horizontal, vertical and 5-axis machining centers, has introduced its latest vertical machining center (VMC), the Mycenter-2XD Sparkchanger. It is designed to be a compact, powerful, all-in-one solution for fast, accurate simultaneous 3-axis machining.

"With a host of value-driven performance features, Kitamura's Mycenter-2XD Sparkchanger is the ideal machine for high production machining," said a company spokesperson. A speedy 2-station automatic pallet changer allows the operator to load/unload parts while machining for optimum productivity. A 40-tool automatic tool changer as a standard feature with high speed rapid feedrates of 48 m/min (1,889 IPM) X and Y, 42 m/min (1,654 IPM) Z on heavy duty 3-block, double roller LM guide ways. "Combined with stiff cast construction, the Mycenter-2XD Sparkchanger offers the benefits and reliability of Kitamura quality features and components throughout - all within a space-saving design," continued the spokesperson.

Mycenter-2XD Sparkchanger Features

Meehanite cast C-frame construction provides rigidity, durability and stability. All contact surfaces are hand scraped for precise alignment, fit and performance to allow high quality and attention to detail in the manufacturing process. Heavy duty 3-block, double roller LM guideways provide high rigidity with long-term smooth motion operation.

Standard is a dual contact, 12,000 RPM, 35 HP AC spindle system. "The high performance, efficient NRG belt drive means highly transmissible torque and power from the motor to the spindle with less vibration and noise. This provides smooth operation, reliability and stiffness to keep the machine up and running," said the spokesperson.

The Mycenter-2XD Sparkchanger offers a standard 40 tool ATC. An increase in tool storage enhances machining capability in order to maximize machining profits. The tool magazine is designed and located up and away from the machining environment with a rear loading station for easy maintenance.

High efficiency chip evacuation is provided with standard base wash system, internal chip augers and a scraper type chip conveyor, keeping the large workspace free of chips and contaminants.

The Mycenter-2XD Sparkchanger is equipped with Kitamura Arumatik-Jr. CNC Controller. "Featuring high speed machining functions, the Arumatik-Jr. offers up to 16x faster processing speeds when compared to today's conventional controls," said the spokesperson. Enhanced standard features included 675 block look-ahead, 1,280 meters memory, USB Memory interface and Ethernet I/F for faster and smoother program transfer. Additional value added features offer increased reliability in more complex part processing to simplify more demanding machining challenges.
