New Double-Column Machining Center

July 28, 2022
The MVR-Ax series was developed for processing large components, with a 6,000-rpm main axis and a 4,000-rpm gear drive main axis (max. torque of 3,430N m) for deeper cutting.

NIDEC MACHINE TOOL launched the MVR-Ax double-column machining centers, developed as easy-to-use machines for processing large components. MVR-Ax series machines have a main axis that rotates at a standard speed of 6,000 times per minute to machine large workpieces, such as industrial, construction, semiconductor manufacturing, and power-generating equipment, and with a gear drive main axis (opt.) (4,000 rpm, with a maximum torque of 3,430N m) for deeper cutting operations.

Combined with resilient structures of their main unit, which remain completely undamaged from this high torque, the products have sturdy ram main axes that enhance the cutting capability during ram protrusion, while enhancing the performance of the machining of tall components’ lateral sides. Additionally, a large number of attachments enable the machining centers of the MVR-Ax series to machine objects of various shapes, including narrow sections, multifaceted surfaces, slant planes, and adjustable surfaces.

Furthermore, the individual axes’ fast-forwarding speeds are 30 m/min. for the x-axis, 32 m/min. for the y-axis, 20 m/min. for the z-axis, and 5 m/min. for the w-axis. The shortened non-cutting time makes the MVR-Ax series highly productive.

The MVR-Ax series has as standards the “NidecNavi” an operational assistance function, to help the operator make NC programs and perform centering work efficiently; and the “simple collision prevention function,” to prevent tool-work collision.

In addition, with the use of “DIASCOPE” IoT platform, Nidec provides swift, secure, and hassle-free support for the MVR-Ax series.

Other features include an idling stop function for the oil cooler and the hydraulic unit to reduce electricity consumption and serve other energy-conserving purposes.
