At the end of the day, machine tools are meant to help people make things. In today’s challenging economic climate many of us are looking to make things quicker, with less energy, and hurdles. Accomplishing this means moving away from a “disconnected” manufacturing floor. Machine tools with integrated auxiliary equipment will not only simplify your machine process, but improve accuracy, reduce human error, and more.

Having a machine that is capable of seamlessly integrating your auxiliary equipment doesn’t have to mean added complexity. Shibaura Machine has designed our CNC machine tools with the option to integrate auxiliary equipment to accomplish just the opposite. With a thoughtful approach to the design, our engineers recognized the auxiliary equipment into an embedded subassembly that is built into the machine tool. This allows our customers a truly integrated, multitasking machine approach versus a series of separate isolated subassemblies.

The Importance of Integrated Auxiliary Equipment

Auxiliary equipment providers not only help manufacturers solve problems, but also explore new productivity ideas to keep your machine tool running as efficiently as possible. 

Operational Performance

The demand for high-performance, precise, flexible machine tools continues to grow. Auxiliary equipment integration allows your manufacturing operations to keep up with customer requirements whether it is in the semiconductor, energy, gas & oil, aerospace, and automobile industries. With our approach to integrated auxiliary equipment as embedded subassemblies, you have the ability to quickly address complex machining challenges.

Subassembly Connectivity

Shibaura Machine started with a foundation of a repeatable CNC machining process and then integrated secondary equipment to increase productivity and flexibility. This type of subassembly connectivity means true integration, not various pieces of auxiliary equipment running disparate. This connectivity gives increased visibility into your operations, improving production.

Operational Safety

Integrating auxiliary equipment offers improved machine power and reduced manpower. Users are able to work directly with the Shibaura’s machine tool controller to see that all auxiliaries are connected to the machine and are correctly configured to run the job. This allows a safer, more accurate, and error-proof method.

Our CNC machine tools offer manufacturers a complete solution. Contact our experts to learn more about the connectivity capabilities offered in our CNC machine tools.
