Mori Seiki has expanded its X-class machine range by launching the NTX1000, an integrated mill turn centre designed for machining small precision parts for medical equipment and measuring instruments.

The NTX1000, which the company began taking orders for on 14 September 2010, is particularly useful for components that have a complex shape and need high-precision, high-efficiency machining.

Included within the machine are Mori Seiki’s DDM (direct drive motor), ORC (octagonal ram construction) and BMT (built-in motor turret) technologies, which deliver accurate and complete machining of small precision parts.

Fitted with the latest MAPPS IV operating system, the NTX1000 shares the rounded cover design of all the X-class range, as well as an ergonomic slanted keyboard for easier operation.

Its footprint is 40 per cent less than the company’s conventional models, offering improved productivity per unit area.

To combat the effects of thermal displacement, the NTX1000’s Spindle 1 is designed to maintain its centre in the same position, with a headstock structure symmetrical in the X and Y-axis directions.

Slideways for the ORC are located diagonally opposite each other, ensuring heat-related distortion is symmetrical and cancelled out.

The combination of automatic programming software and ESPRIT CAM software, which both come as standard, allows the machine to handle complex programming requirements in line with customer’s needs.

The 3D interference-checking function, included on all machines, checks for collisions between spindles, workpieces, soft jaws, tools, holders and turrets in 3D, stopping the machine in both automatic and manual modes if an interference is detected.

There are eight different NTX models available to meet different machining needs.

All are general purpose but each has the flexibility to handle metal cutting usually performed on special machinery, increasing their range of potential applications.

MORI SEIKI with its head offices in Nagoya, Japan, is a pioneer in machine tool building. Founded in 1948 the company has launched more than one hundred different lathe and machining centre series over the years, all NC / CNC models. In total more than 180.000 machines have been produced.

Products from MORI SEIKI are manufactured on the basis of a solid development policy. As manufacturer of machine tools the company has developed a wide range of CNC lathes, machining centres, and multi-axis lathes. Complete solution is the key phrase, as support throughout the full lifecycle of machines is paramount to MORI SEIKI.

MORI SEIKI machines are produced in Japanese production factories Iga, Nara and Chiba, as well as in its production location at Dixi machines in Le Locle, Switzerland. The French company TOBLER SAS – specialists in precise clamping mandrels and clamping tools – also belongs to the Mori Seiki group.

MORI SEIKI has over 90 sales and service technical centres worldwide.

Recent years have seen the company’s dedication in Europe get off to a good start. Various sites have been set up and further expanded. The European training centre is located in the Stuttgart Technical Centre. Here customers, employees and business partners from all over Europe can be trained in extremely well equipped conditions.

We also have a centralised spare parts department in Europe, which has over 23.290 parts in stock, ensuring quicker and more efficient spare parts delivery.

Precision, performance and productivity: that is PURE TECHNOLOGY from MORI SEIKI.
