DMG/Mori Seiki Australia unveiled six new machine models to more than 9,000 visitors at the recent 2012 Austech exhibition in Sydney.
The company generated a record number of product orders during Austech – the
largest machine tool exhibition held annually in Australia and NZ.
Orders exceeded the company’s expectations by 25 per cent, said DMG/MORI SEIKI Australia President Stefan Weiwadel.
“This year’s show started really well with several orders generated during the first two days, while the overall order intake increased significantly,” he said.
Also, the number of trade visitors who sought information on trend-setting technologies as well as on industry-focused solutions for the aerospace, automotive, medical and mining sectors, increased sharply over the previous two years.
According to Paul McDermott, National Product/Agent Manager at DMG/Mori Seiki Australia, the Mori Seiki NLX2500 universal turning machine was a crowd puller for applications in the booming mining sector, where large envelope machining is required.
Also on display, the NLX2500SY/700, beyond the standard, provides users with a counter spindle as well as the benefits of an integrated Y-axis.
The turning length here is 705mm, with a diameter of 366mm. Bar loading can be machined at a diameter of 80mm – for traverse paths in X- and Z-axis of 260mm or 795mm respectively.
The first joint development, the Milltap 700 compact efficient machining centre also proved to be a crowd puller.
The machine is suitable for a whole range of applications – from small parts manufacture, electrical components to general engineering
“The Milltap 700 is a highly dynamic machine and ideal for machining that has to be done quite rapidly,” says Mr McDermott.
The high machining speed usual in the field of tapping centres is supported by a high-speed tool changer which achieves a tool change time of 1.1sec and subsequently chip-to-chip times of 1.5sec enabling a highly efficient process.
There is also a special feature: The complete drive of the magazine – it takes 15 or optionally 25 tools – is integrated into the spindle head.
Key features in this context are the impressive dynamic response of up to 1.6g in the linear axes as well as fast axis movements up to 60m/min, which significantly increases productivity.
