Original press release:
Murata Machinery USA launches the first hybrid fiber laser machine at FABTECH 2021.
Unparalleled multi-function automation combines value-added processing for light-less production
Charlotte, NC – (September 23, 2021) – Murata Machinery USA, Inc. (Muratec) showcased their latest innovation and unveiled their new, integrated, value-added approach to industrial automation at FABTECH 2021 in Chicago. Showcasing what it means to humanize automation, attendees watched live demonstrations of how Muratec systems can fit together, helping customers build, move, store, and service them in their homes. intralogistics and manufacturing supply chains. Muratec showcased a world-class manufacturing, turning and material handling automation line, launching another Muratec manufacturing machine, the first of its kind, the Advanced Hybrid Fiber Laser (LS3015HL).
Leveraging the high-speed precision of fiber laser cutting and the precise forming and tapping performance synonymous with Muratec’s punching technology, the new LS3015HL is the first and only combination machine available with laser today. fiber in its heart. Its integrated flywheel optical system for fiber laser cutting and upper and lower servo motors for forming maximize laser and forming capabilities, moving from raw material to finished products in fewer steps. With a repeat accuracy of Â± 0.001 “and a fast travel speed of 6,692.9 ipm, it is ideal for prototypes, large series, short-term stamping, sample part production and geometries Its all-in-one design maximizes floor space, minimizes materials in process (WIP), eliminates the need for secondary processes and dramatically increases throughput.
âWith labor shortages in the manufacturing sector and industrial environments requiring more automation to meet new customer demands, Muratec has long been the industry benchmark for innovation, integration and customization, âsaid Jeff Kalmbach, general manager of machine tools for Muratec. âWe are pushing the boundaries of automation in manufacturing and material handling, expanding production capacity for unlit manufacturing so our customers can take more. “
Designed to provide ultimate precision on complex parts with a single machine, Muratec also introduced its MT series CNC double spindle lathe and integrated gantry loader. This high productivity “job-shop-in-a box” series was designed for multitasking to increase throughput while maintaining superior process quality without sacrificing flexibility. Turning and milling capabilities are combined into one, and the integrated Y axis and dynamic tools are standard on every turret, providing ultimate flexibility.
Cooperation between Automated Storage and Retrieval (AS / RS) and Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) increases productivity and extinguishing capabilities by safely automating manual, repetitive handling and transportation processes. Muratec showcased its next generation of intelligent AGVs and AS / RS options, helping customers realize the added value of transporting and storing raw materials between manufacturing and turning processes, and within processes.
âHelping our customers focus on long-term system performance and flexibility is essential,â said Scott Matlock, general manager of logistics and automation at Muratec. âSpeed ââmeans nothing without reliability, keeping the system running as long and as late as necessary is essential for our customers to gain operational peace of mind through high product quality and reliable service. “
Muratec has reinforced how automated solutions with advanced integration can bring productivity and efficiency to manufacturing and machine shops or OEM facilities. Systems are designed around their requirements, defining how parts and materials are manufactured, moved and stored to streamline the production process, increasing speed, consistency and productivity.
