Ultra Compact Footprint HMC for the Automotive Industry



10-station field expandable pallet pool option

Kitamura Machinery, a manufacturer of precision horizontal, vertical and 5-axis machining centers, simplifies automotive machining operations with its fully spec'd, high speed, space saving Mycenter-HX250iG horizontal machining center (HMC).

Manufactured in Japan and featuring high speed rapids of 2,362 IPM, the Mycenter-HX250iG is designed to offer high efficiency with the ability to mill, bore, drill, tap and thread light to heavy duty materials on a single machine.

Meehanite cast construction provides enhanced vibration absorption capabilities for improved surface quality, elevating finish capabilities to a higher level and increasing overall life of cutting tools. "High rigidity combined with a high speed 15,000 RPM (30,000 RPM optional) spindle allows for quick and accurate metal removal," said a company spokesperson.

HX250iG - High Speed, High Production Features

"'World's fastest' standard full 4th axis rotary table is newly designed with an integral drive motor enabling speeds of 300 RPM (108,000 deg/min) rapids, reducing part cycle times, eliminating backlash and providing a firm, rigid machining platform," said the spokesperson. "High resolution, Heidenhain direct rotary encoder scale feedback minimizes displacement, even on the outer edges of the table limit, and offers positioning accuracy of ±2 arc sec."

A 2-station APC is automation ready and field expandable up to 10 pallets, offering true flexible, lean manufacturing capabilities. The ability to add on 5-axis simultaneous machining capacity to not only one but both pallets after installation opens up possibilities to improve and expand a business, reducing manufacturing costs.

With high speed tool changes of 0.9 seconds (T-T), a standard 40-tool fixed pot ATC allows for the addition of up to 52/102 tools in the field for backup/redundant tool storage without adding floor space to the machine.

"Industry leading precision means accurate, smooth surface finishes with fine pitch ball screws and 67 million pulse encoder technology. Positioning accuracy is ±0.002 mm (±0.000079 inch)/full stroke, repeatability ±0.001 mm (±0.0000396 inch)," said the spokesperson.

The horizontal machining configuration of the Mycenter-HX250iG keeps the chips down and out of the way of the part, saving on tooling costs and increasing part quality. A standard scraper type chip conveyor with rolling filter offers enhanced chip management in high production environments.

"Kitamura's advanced Arumatik-Mi control offers easier programming, part set-up and operation right at the operator's fingertips," said the spokesperson. A quick access, completely customizable icon menu simplifies operator-machine tool interaction. Easy access set-up guides, maintenance support functions and video guidance screens allow a user to organize, interface and monitor machine performance and uptime. Easy-to-use support and alert systems guide the user through PM, instructional information and offer G-code assistance as means of operational support. Kitamura's IoT platform partnership, Anywhere-Remote, gives users the opportunity to receive live production data anywhere, anytime by presetting alarms and configuring specific data alerts to instantly connect with the shop floor and boost efficiency.
