1 min read

As pioneers of automated 5-axis CNC machining, Matsuura Machinery said it continues to lead the way with MACH debuts of the MAM72-52V and the MX-420 PC10 – both machines are the latest additions to the firm's world-renowned MAM and MX series, proudly demonstrated on stand H20-442.

Designed from the ground up and based upon 30+ years of multi-pallet automation innovation and excellence, the Matsuura MAM72-52V is a "factory in one machine" that enables variable-part/variable-volume production and extended unmanned operation. Equipped with 130 tools on a 330 tool magazine base, proven tower pallet system (PC15) for extended lights out manufacturing and chip removal system as standard.

This high-speed, large-capacity 5-axis vertical machining centre delivers Matsuura’s 5 axis performance and sits proudly in a unique capacity position within the MAM72 product range, bridging the gap between MAM72-35V and MAM72-70V.

Suitable for a large array of work in many industries, machining the full spectrum of materials, from exotics, titanium, to aluminium and cast iron to "hard to cut" machining challenges.

Following the remarkable global success of the MX-330 PC10 and responding to customer demand, Matsuura has developed its big brother – the fully automated 5-axis MX-420 PC10, with larger capacity and workload. The MX-420 PC10 is also making its UK debut at MACH.

From the Muratec portfolio Matsuura will be exhibiting an MT Series fully automated lathe, with features including twin spindles, multi-tasking functionality and an intelligent gantry unloader. Happy to process billets or bar, the MT Series are a firm favourite with our UK customers. Muratec CNC machines are a division of Muratec Murata, a large global family of class leading automation solutions.

No strangers to metal and 3D printing, Matsuura are also demonstrating the Desktop Metal Studio System 2, a desktop 3D printer ideal for producing complex, high-performance custom metal parts in a variety of materials. Also on show from Desktop Metal is the Fiber, a composite 3D printing machine with great potential in aerospace, and motorsport.

Roger Howkins, managing director at Matsuura Machinery Ltd commented: “With a buoyant and busy UK manufacturing sector, MACH 2022 is set to be a great show for Matsuura, our wider industry and our growing UK customer base.

"We’ve selected machines to exhibit that continue to lead the field in reliable CNC automation and deliver a great return for our customers and deliver new possibilities into their CNC businesses with our 3D printing products.

"After a hugely successful 2021, our whole team is looking forward to meeting the market again at MACH 2022 – the UK’s premier manufacturing technology show.”
