Embracing the Future: Shibaura Machine's Product Innovation in Multi-Tasking Equipment

  • Machine Tools

ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL, August 8, 2023 - 

As manufacturers seek to optimize efficiency and expand capabilities, multi-tasking machining centers have emerged as major innovations in the industry. These advanced machines integrate various machining operations into a single platform, streamlining processes and enhancing productivity. This technology saves time, money, and resources, while improving quality control and accuracy, transforming manufacturers' approach to complex projects.

Transforming Manufacturing with Multitasking Machining Centers

Multi-tasking machine tools are becoming increasingly popular in the manufacturing industry and are expected to be the standard in the future. As industry demands grow more sophisticated, these machines provide the much-needed versatility to navigate challenges with ease. Below are examples of the latest innovations manufacturers can expect with multi-tasking machines and how Shibaura Machine is developing equipment designed to meet modern industry needs.

Integrated Automation for Seamless Operations

One of the key product innovations in Shibaura Machine's multi-tasking machining centers is their integration of advanced automation features. These machines come equipped with pallet loading and unloading systems, and tool changers. Automation ensures continuous unmanned operation, reduces manual labor, and significantly enhances production efficiency. Manufacturers can run their machines around the clock, boosting throughput and productivity.

High Throughput Machining for Faster Cycle Times

With cutting-edge spindle technology, optimized cutting tools, and precision control systems, these machines achieve faster cutting speeds, resulting in reduced cycle times and increased output. For example, Shibaura Machine's MP-2620 (U) mill-turn machining center delivers high throughput machining capabilities whether it's milling, turning, or drilling. The throughput machining feature ensures efficient manufacturing without compromising quality.

Multi-Tasking Machining for Complex Geometries

Another notable product innovation is the MPJ-M double column type machines that can be used as 5-axis machining centers. For example, these multitasking centers incorporate attachments along with the automatic attachment changer to enable simultaneous and complex machining of intricate geometries. As a result, manufacturers can achieve high-precision parts with minimal setup, reducing production time and costs significantly.

User-Friendly Interfaces for Enhanced Efficiency

Understanding the importance of ease-of-use, Shibaura Machine has developed user-friendly interfaces for their multitasking machining centers with both TOSNUC or FANUC CNC controllers; machinists can program and control the machines effortlessly, simplifying complex processes and minimizing the learning curve. The intuitive interface ensures operators can optimize productivity without wasting valuable time on complex setups.

Simplify Modern Manufacturing

Multi-tasking machining centers have the ability to transform manufacturers' approach to complex projects. As industry demands continue to evolve, Shibaura Machine's commitment to innovation ensures that their multitasking machining centers remain at the forefront of cutting-edge technology, providing manufacturers with the tools they need to excel in a competitive global market.
