Matsuura to give Southern Manufacturing debut to the MX-420 PC10

1 min read

Following the global success of the MX-330 PC10, Matsuura introduced the MX-420 PC10 5-axis vertical machining centre configured with 10 pallets and 90 tools.

The MX-420 PC10 was developed following global demand for a larger workpiece envelope on the same winning MX-330 PC10 platform.

Possessing Matsuura’s legendary OEM automation technology, the fully automated MX-420 PC10 provides affordable and reliable unmanned 5-axis production and is making its debut appearance at Southern Manufacturing on stand E260 – machining live throughout the show and demonstrating just how flexible the 10-pallet changer can be during unmanned operation.

Already in operation with numerous UK customers, the MX-420 PC10 has proven itself as an equal to the MX-330 PC10 in terms of OEE, spindle uptime, ROI and reliability.

Following the success of last year’s Southern Manufacturing and the interest from visitors in our additive manufacturing offer, for the first time Matsuura have a separate stand (E270) entirely dedicated to 3D printers, AM software and raw parts post-processing, conveniently located opposite our CNC stand.

As an award-winning reseller of HP 3D printers, we will be demonstrating a wide range of actual customer parts from all industry sectors, including high-quality white parts printed in PA12W on the new industrial mass production MJF 3D printer - the HP 5420W. All UK end users of HP MJF 3D printing technology are Matsuura customers.

There will also be a range of parts from Desktop Metal’s 3D printer portfolio in a vast array of metals.

For the first time at Southern, Matsuura will be showcasing the component manufacturing capabilities of Roboze 3D printers using carbon PEEK, a composite material reinforced with carbon fiber. Offering extraordinary characteristics in terms of mechanical, thermal and chemical resistance, Carbon PEEK is ideal for aerospace and oil and gas industries.

Also, on show on stand E270; components from DyeMansion - the global leader in post-processing solutions for industrial 3D-printing that turn 3D-printed raw parts into high-value products.

Southern Manufacturing takes place from 6-8 February 2024 at the Farnborough International Exhibition Centre. Visit for more.
