Matsuura Machinery Ltd
Matsuura Machinery Ltd are recognised market leaders in the field of unmanned multi-pallet and multi-tasking CNC machine tools and their associated manufacturing process solutions. Our product portfolio spans the whole spectrum of CNC machine tools, supporting a diverse range of UK customers spanning all industrial sectors. Matsuura customers demand and receive unrivalled productivity, high accuracy and reliability from our CNC products along with service, applications and technical support that is second to none in the UK machine tool supply chain.
The Matsuura MAM72-100H has been designed and built for heavy duty machining of large billets, and to process geometrically complex components requiring sustained close tolerance accuracy.
EDGECAM created a special program incorporating 50% 5-axis simultaneous and 50% prismatic machining. Matsuura Applications Engineer Jon Tighe says: “I wanted a program for a part that drove the A-axis from 0 to 90 as one toolpath, demonstrating all 5-axes moving simultaneously. The toolpaths created in EDGECAM for our series of demonstrations to the industry over a three week period, demonstrate the machine moving extremely quickly and extremely accurately. They fully utilise Matsuura’s high speed machining system and Fanuc’s TCPC 5-axis options.”
