New Matsuura 5-Axis Milling Machine

Date: 09 Jul 18

With a view to improving cycle times, efficiencies and overall quality of our milled parts, Techno Group have purchased a Matsuura MX-330 PC10 5 axis vertical machining centre with a 10 pallet carousel system. The addition of a 5th axis to our existing fleet of 4 axis machines means that we are able to machine complex components from start to finish in a minimal number of operations. To ability to machine using 5 axis simultaneously in combination with the powerful Edgecam CAD/CAM software means that we are opening up the door to a whole new range of products where we otherwise would have been too expensive or would struggle to machine using a conventional 3 or 4 axis machine.

We see this as an investment which will solidify our future as a subcontract machine shop and help our customers come up with a complete engineering solution with our in-house engineers and highly experienced staff.

The MX-300 is scheduled to be installed at Technoturn in October 2018 and will include the opportunity to train a number of our members of staff in both machine application and Edgecam CAD/CAM. This is a new beginning for us, and we want to bring the group up-to-date with modern technology and methods of manufacture. We are all very excited about our future and look forward to seeing this machine in action.
