AMADA MACHINE TOOLS to participate in INTERMOLD 2015

Posted at: Apr 12


AMADA MACHINE TOOLS CO., LTD. will participate in INTERMOLD 2015, the 26th Japan Metal Stamping Technology Exhibition, which will be held at Tokyo Big Sight from April 15 (Wed.) to April 18 (Sat.), 2015. The company will propose “Process innovation  a total solution from mold making to stamping process”, based on its latest digital, eco-friendly, grinding combined processing and automation technologies.

The multiprocess center GX-350 is a new 5-axis, milling and grinding combined processing machine. It can process workpieces up to φ 350 mm × 250 mm. Due to an independent structure for the tool spindle together with a gantry structure and an independent rotary table, the workpiece mass does not affect dynamic accuracy, which enabled processing to be stable and high precision. The ATC can handle grinding wheel diameters up to φ 150 mm, so grinding combined processing with a wide range of variations can be achieved.

The multiprocess center MX-150 is the optimal multiprocessing machine for making complex-shaped completed parts, as a wide variety of processing functions are combined into this machine. We will show a machine with automation specification with an automatic workpiece changer, which is optimized for high-mix and low-volume production. The multiprocess center MX-150 is also a 5-axis machine combining three processes which are milling, turning and grinding. It provides significantly improved processing accuracy as a result of an independent structure for the tool spindle which prevents the accumulation of positioning errors. Grinding surface finish can be

performed with this machine as well. The digital electric servo stamping press SDE-1522(SF) is equipped with an exclusive servo motor which can generate high torque energy at low speed. The machine has various motion controls, which realize high value-added forming process; high accuracy processing, process shortening, combination processing and forming of materials which are difficult to be processed owing to pulse forming.

The single crank stamping press TP-80FX is the latest model of the general-purpose crank press TP series that has been offered since 1965. This machine can be used flexibly, from a single stamping such as blanking, bending or drawing to automated progressive stamping. A software “APINES,” which allows to visualize the operational status and maintenance information of  machines, will be also exhibited.
