Nakamura-Tome Precision Industry Co., Ltd. (CEO Shogo NAKAMURA) announced a new two-turret two-spindle precision CNC multitasking lathe named WY-100V. With the slogan “Faster than the fastest,” many new technologies to reduce cycle time are implemented in the new machine.
In the ever-evolving landscape of manufacturing technology, precision and speed are the cornerstones of innovation. Addressing this demand for higher efficiency and accuracy, Nakamura-Tome has unveiled its latest model, the WY-100V CNC machine. This cutting-edge equipment is poised to revolutionise the industry by offering high levels of speed and precision, surpassing machinery available today.
Cut cycle time by 30%
After a considerable interval of seven years since the release of its predecessor, the WY-100II, Nakamura-Tome has developed the WY-100V, aiming to enhance the value-added multitasking capabilities of the machine. The salient feature of this renewed model lies in its remarkable cycle time reduction technology. To mitigate idle time during operations, they have devised a new technology known as “ChronoCut.” In conjunction with elevated spindle speeds, enhanced milling speeds, and improved torque on the hardware front, they have successfully achieved a 30% reduction in cycle time in an actual machining scenario, as exemplified by the provided sample workpiece. The inclusion of the Y-axis on the upper/lower turret and the incorporation of opposed twin spindles as standard features further contribute to its unparalleled performance. With its augmented processing capabilities and the ability to simultaneously perform left/right and upper/lower machining, rapid production is guaranteed. Notably, substantial software enhancements have been made to minimise idle time, thereby pushing the boundaries of speed like never before.
Experience the fastest machine you’ve ever encountered!
The new WY-100V is a highly versatile machine that offers multitasking capabilities. This is made possible by equipping both turrets with Y-axis functionality, two spindles, and two turrets. These features contribute to faster cycle times, as simultaneous machining can be achieved using the L/R spindles and upper/lower turrets. Additionally, the WY-100V is compatible with the GR-203 High-Speed (optional), further enhancing its efficiency. New hardware and software solutions have been developed to enhance the accuracy and speed of mass production in the context of multi-turret machines. These advancements aim to reduce cycle time, enabling the production of a larger number of workpieces within the same time frame. By doing so, manufacturers can effectively reduce manufacturing costs, particularly in challenging cost-cutting situations, while also addressing concerns related to tight delivery deadlines.
One notable advantage of this machine is its ability to automate the entire process, starting from loading the blank material to unloading a finished part. This automation feature streamlines production and reduces the need for manual intervention. Overall, the WY-100V is a cutting-edge solution that combines advanced functionalities to deliver superior performance in various machining applications.
