Toyoda Machinery (Arlington Heights, IL) showcases technology from its high-speed linear guide and its boxway vertical machining center lines.
Bystronic Inc. (Hauppauge, NY) offers its Manual Bevel Angle cutting head option for Byjet waterjet cutting systems that cuts up to a 45 deg angle and can be used for weld preparation or the cutting of holes that must be at an angle to the plate.
Wendt GmbH (Wixom, MI) introduces the SPECTRA 820 Laser Machining Center for generating complex, three-dimensional contours in hard materials.
Romi Machine Tools Ltd.(Erlanger, KY) introduces a new low cost lathe, the C420, with three modes of operation depending on operator skill levels.
OMAX (Kent, WA) presents the 55100 JetMachining® Center, one of three large-footprint JetMachining centers produced by OMAX. Designed to machine large parts, the 55100 accommodates sheets of material up to 5 ft x 10 ft and can cut complex flat parts from a wide variety of materials used for components for the oil and gas industry.
The line of “Heavy Metal” CNC machining centers from Mitsui Seiki (Franklin Lakes, NJ) are the result of decades of experience and R&D in titanium and nickel alloy airframe and aerospace engine component manufacturing.
HV machines from Mitsubishi Laser (Wood Dale, IL) make up the advanced hybrid series with an open table that provides excellent operability and easy maintenance.
MAG Cincinnati clears the table and collects all the chips in high-value aluminum machining with the HyperMach H4000, the industry’s highest output 5-axis horizontal machining center for clean, contained cutting of parts up to 2 m x 4 m.
Hardinge Inc. (Elmira, NY) expanded its line of turning centers with the GS 150, GS 200, GS 200/66 and GS 250 machines.
Mitsui Seiki (Franklin Lakes, NJ) has launched the VLD-300, a small, vertical, Nd:YAG laser drilling machine for 12 in cube parts (300 mm x 300 mm x 300 mm in X-, Y-, Z-axes). This machine was developed collaboratively with several aerospace engine component manufacturers who expressed a need for a higher-speed and more accurate laser-drilling machine than what was currently available on the market.
The VMC 6535-40T from MAG Fadal (Chatsworth, CA) is a robust, economical vertical machining center with a work table size of 75 in (1,905 mm) x 35 in (889 mm) that provides broad flexibility in terms of workpiece size and multiple-part setups. The machine delivers high material removal rates and reduced part cycle times while holding ±.0002 in axis positioning accuracy.
OMAX (Kent, WA) presents the FABRICATOR JetCutting Center, a large format abrasive waterjet system that demonstrates how the latest waterjet innovations can benefit those working with tile and stone. The versatile FABRICATOR JetCutting Center supports large format cutting in stone fabrication shops.
