Citizen Machinery claimed to have the world's fastest 32mm capacity CNC sliding head automatic lathe, which will be in action during Open Days this October.
Citizen machinery UK will be launching, what it claimed to be the world's fastest 32mm capacity CNC sliding head automatic lathe at its CNC Autumn Productivity Days Open House The Open House will be staged at the Bushey, Watford, showroom.
October 7-9, 2008.
Managing director Citizen machinery UK, Geoff Bryant said that the event will be the first chance to see the production version of the Citizen A32-VII in action.
He commented: "So impressive was the prototype machine shown to visitors at the MACH 2008 exhibition in April at the NEC that six advance orders were placed on the stand at the show".
With deliveries about to commence, the machine will be set to produce sample components using its up to 27 tool capacity and sub-spindle capability.
It will demonstrate high metal removal rates from its heavier construction and 40% increase in spindle torque, coupled with ultra-quick 45 m/min rapid traverse rates.
Also, contributing to the minimisation of non-cutting times, Citizen's 'Streamline Control' software will show the benefits obtained by its ability to co-ordinate axis overlaps with direct C-axis indexing and shorter start up and switching times.
The Open House will provide visitors an opportunity to see how to upgrade their productivity by viewing another seven CNC autmatic lathes in action.
These will include the following.
* The high speed linear driven RO7.
* A mid-range K12 and larger capacity K16.
* The L20 plus.
* The low cost A20 - a highly productive smaller 20mm capacity version of the A32.
* Two top of the range M-Series machines, an M16 and M32, will also be under power.
Supporting companies at the event and showing related CNC sliding head technology products of interest to the small turned parts industry, will include the following.
* Delcam with CAD to CAM.
* Floyd Automatic Tooling.
* Iemca bar feeds.
* Miyano Machinery UK.
* Sandvik Coromant.
Citizen Machinery's high pressure CoolBlaster system will be fitted to several machines and its UK developed CNC Wizard programming software, CNC Program Editor and wireless program transfer will be demonstrated.
