Compact, Double-Column Machining Center

Nidec Machine Tool Corporation, a Nidec Group company, announced its latest double-column machining center, the MV12BxII.

"This high-efficiency machine brings the best-in-class speed of a rapid traverse that significantly reduces noncutting time, while achieving the highest productivity among all compact double-column machining centers," said a company spokesperson.

The MV12BxII uses grease to lubricate all of its spindle and feed axes to improve energy efficiency, and features an electric power unit that enables ecofriendly operations. Designed to meet a diverse range of production requirements, it is designed to provide high-precision surface quality in general parts machining, including light cutting to heavy cutting.

The MV12BxII offers high-speed rapid traverse of X-axis 48 m/min. and Y- and Z-axes of 32 m/min. The spindle's maximum rotating speed has been improved to 7,000 RPM and motor output has been increased to 26 kW. Machine installation space is a compact 3.4 m x 5.8 m. It features a maximized range of operation with X-axis stroke of 1.6 m and Y-axis stroke of 1.3 m.

"With the use of an energy-efficient and low-noise electric power unit to operate its pump only when necessary, MV12BxII consumes less power than conventional hydraulic units that are always running," said the spokesperson. "In addition, with the adoption of the tribology technology that Nidec Machine Tool has long developed and perfected, it enables the use of grease to lubricate MV12BxII's spindle and feeding axes, helping the machine to use less air and lubricant agent-reducing running cost and operator workload."

Additionally, MV12BxII has available a variety of user-friendly options that were jointly developed with Nidec OKK Corporation, whose product lineup includes small- and medium-sized machining centers. The options include an automatic operator door, a coolant shower and a selectable chip conveyor to meet various user needs.
