Nakamura offers 5-axis simultaneous machining on turning centre

Added to MTDCNC by Engineering Technology Group on 04 July 2015

This robust new machine has been designed with a reduced distance from the tool to the B-axis centre of rotation. This ensures B-axis resists cutting torques and retains stable machining performance that can enhance surface finishes and tool life by minimising vibration.  

Commenting upon the arrival of this new machine in the UK, ETG's Technical Director, Mr Richard Hughes said: 'We are extremely excited about the potential of this machine. It is a high-tech machine that has been developed to fill a gap in the marketplace and provide industry with an innovative new concept. By introducing a turning centre with a full 5-axis milling head, Nakamura has taken out the multi-station tooling turrets to increase flexibility whilst reducing the 'extras' and the associated costs.'

From a machine build perspective, the NTRX-300 features a robust 18.5kW tool spindle offering 8,000rpm  with 12,000rpm as an option. The machine can also be supplied with either a tailstock or twin spindle configuration. In twin spindle configuration, the left and right hand spindles offer 4,500rpm with 15kW motors with high powered motors also available for large bar capacity versions at 22kW.

As expected from Nakamura, the build quality is uncompromising with the machine mounted on a uniquely designed bed that maximises thermal stability, creates uniform loads during slide movement and features a highly rigid spindle.

The machine features Nakamura’s new Smart X control interfacing with the main control based on a Fanuc 31i-B5 5 axis system. It also features a unique in-built load/unload device, a 40 tool Capto C6 ATC as standard (60, 80 and 129 capacities optional) and a standard bar capacity of 65mm with options of 71mm, 80mm and 90mm diameter.  Eight or ten inch chucks can be mounted to either spindle.

The NTRX-300 can now be viewed at the Engineering Technology Group's Southam headquarters where visitors can browse machines in the new 'Permanent Trade Show' and also find out more about the extensive engineering and technical support that is provided throughout the lifetime of the machine.
