Methods Machine Tools has introduced the Nakamura-Tome JX-250 multitasking turning center for milling and turning of complex parts.
With a large work area, the twin lower turret configuration adds to the machine's flexibility for complex part manufacturing. The machine features an automatic tool changer and the 12,000-rpm NT Smart Cube tool spindle -- the world's smallest tool spindle. The small spindle allows for maximum part length on the left and right turning spindles, even when the horizontal tool spindle and lower turrets are in the cut.
The 55,000-lb horizontal bed's low center of gravity and vertical column structure promote high machining accuracy. The NT Thermo Navigator AI controls thermal growth during machining and compensates for temperature changes.
The JX-250 has a maximum turning diameter of 12.6" (320 mm) and a maximum turning length of 65" (1,650mm).
A SmartX PC-based high-resolution color touch screen works in conjunction with the FANUC 31i-B5 control for programming and control functionality.
