Mitsubishi’s DX Waterjet machines have an independent frame/tank design, which separates the machine frame from the work tank so machining accuracy is unaffected by large or heavy workpieces.
Miro Tool & Mfg. diversifying its product line and service offering with the addition of Mitsubishi a new 510 Suprema Mitsubishi waterjet table, with a 90,000 PSI KMT pump. The Wisconsin shop said the new cutting capability will allow it to expand into new markets, and bring additional process solutions to its customers.
Miro Tool is a tool-and-die shop established in 1988, but now grown into an operation covering more than 40,000 square feet. Its process capabilities include engineering, prototyping, tooling, stamping, fabrication, welding, assembly, and machining.
The DX Waterjet series is constructed with an independent frame/tank design, which separates the machine frame from the work tank so machining accuracy is unaffected by large or heavy workpieces. The gantry-style movement system travels the extra rigid box constructed X-axis bridge on a set of LM guides driven by dual Mitsubishi brushless AC servo motors and high-pitch 32mm double anchored ball screws for unmatched positioning accuracy. Its 20-inch, ‘I’ beam construction provides unmatched frame stability with a machined top surface that mounts the LM guides for the X-axis bridge.
“Miro Tool continues to transform itself from a tool-and-die shop to contract manufacturer with advancements in prototyping and production,” explains president Jeff Brown. “This waterjet will help us be more productive and efficient in prototyping, tooling and production.”
