Twin Spindle, Front-Facing Turning Center

Murata Machinery USA, Inc. (Muratec) unveiled its new Muratec MWR120G, a multitasking machine with Y-axis functionality, at IMTS, and also featured the upgraded MW35 with iFLiPP technology, an automated loader designed to meet manufacturers' continuing need for reliable, flexible turning machines that solve productivity challenges.

The MWR120G automated horizontal lathe is the next generation of the MW series machines with an integrated robotic gantry loader that blends processing capability in a compact body with front-facing twin spindles, live tooling and Y-axis. The machine's integrated robotic gantry loader enables unmanned workpiece handling for all-in-one processing of complex shapes, from raw to finished parts, for maximizing efficiency without changeovers or the need for secondary operations.

"For manufacturers needing automated turning systems that reduce idle times, optimize efficiencies, increase productivity and alleviate workforce demands, this new machine is the solution," said Jeff Kalmbach, General Manager, Machine Tools Division, Murata Machinery.

Muratec demonstrated its high-speed MW35 twin spindle turning machine with an innovative iFLiPP pick & place loader that automates part feeding. A single operator can quickly load raw materials and keep multiple machines running for continuous operation and mass production. By upgrading the MW35 with the Integrated Fast Loading Pick `n Place (iFLiPP) loader, its automated loading orientation feeds the workpiece into its swing arm-either head leading or head trailing-in 1.9 seconds, eliminating changeovers and machine downtime, delivering more parts at the end of the day.
