Kitamura Machinery Of USA Inc. featured a variety of its products and machining centers at EMO 2017 in Hannover, Germany.

At the show, Kitamura introduced its new IoT platform partnership, Anywhere-Remote, across its Arumatik-Mi series control protocol. Anywhere Remote includes email status updates and machine monitoring software suites that range from basic plug and play packages to those that are customized to suit each individual customer’s application. Anywhere-Remote also includes the MTConnect ready Adaptor (basic), which harnesses real-time, big data to boost shop floor efficiency. Anywhere-Remote email status update technology enables the user to automatically receive live machine production data anywhere, anytime via email to desktop, smartphones and mobile devices based on preset variables. The basic version of the Anywhere-Remote machine monitoring software suite includes configurable dashboard displays that show a variety of information in real time, providing visual manufacturing material to the shop floor and to manufacturing management, maintenance and quality departments. The Anywhere-Remote MTConnect Ready Adaptor (Basic) enables end users to readily and easily adapt machines to the in-house machine monitoring software protocols that the end users already own.

In addition to the Anywhere-Remote platform, Kitamura displayed two horizontal and two vertical machining centers at EMO. Of the horizontal machining centers, Kitamura featured its Mycenter-HX250iG and the Mycenter-HX500iG#50. The Mycenter-HX250iG is compact and has a high speed of 30,000 rpm spindle and a fifth axis (table on table). This particular center can also come with a standard 15,000 rpm spindle, an optional 10-station pallet pool and 102T magazine. This variation offers flexible, lean manufacturing capabilities.

The Mycenter-HX500iG#50 has features like Kitamura’s in-house induction-hardened solid box way construction, 12,000 rpm four-step geared, dual contact spindle, patented twin ballscrew design, rapids of 60 m/min (2,362 ipm) and quick integral drive, fourth axis technology. A 500-mm performance package assembled with craftsmanship in hand-scraping from the ground up. It offers accuracy and rigidity for the toughest and most difficult-to-machine materials.

Again, Kitamura showcased two vertical machining centers at EMO as well. The company demonstrated the versatility and high-precision capabilities for high-quality surface finishes of the full, five-axis Mytrunnion-4G. It was designed for the machining of small to medium sized complex parts in a single set-up. The Mytrunnion-4G vertical machining center has a positioning accuracy of ±0.002 mm (0.000079")/full stroke, and a repeatability of ±0.001 mm (0.000039"). This particular product was designed to machine parts for the medical, aerospace and general machining industries.

At the show, Kitamura highlighted the generous work envelope, integrated trunnion style table, powerful 35HP spindle and high-performance 40 tool ATC of the Mycenter-3XT 4+1 five-axis vertical machining center. Kitamura demonstrated the Mycenter-3XT’s ability to machine with high precision.
