Three new key machines from Citizen Machinery UK will be available at its September Open House for preview prior to their European EMO exhibition launch. The new machines will be amongst a total of 12 machines running demonstrations and 17 complementary exhibitors from leading UK equipment, tooling and accessory suppliers.
The event is set to create an open house scenario that will provide a timely opportunity for visitors to further reduce their effective ‘cost-per-part’ and create a more competitive edge to production demands.
The turn-mill machines being previewed at Citizen Machinery’s UK headquarters in Bushey, Watford, between 22 and 24 September would normally still be under wraps ahead of the EMO exhibition in Milan during October and feature models from Citizen’s Cincom sliding head and Miyano fixed head stables.
These include three of the latest Citizen Cincom L-series variants, the Citizen L32-VIII, L20-X and L20-XII. The new L-series machines are part of the new range pitched as an ‘icon-reinvented’ due to the previous generation series’ record of installation successes around the world.
The new Miyano BNJ-51SY6 fixed head, twin turret, turn-mill centre will be seen in Europe for the first time and is the sixth generation of this highly successful and popular machine renowned for ease of set-up, consistent and stable production while enabling excellent tool life to be maintained. The latest version now features a new second ‘half-moon’ turret with live tool capability and should prove to be a ‘winner’ in reducing cost-per-part with sub-contractors and OEMs.
Other machines in the Citizen Machinery line up include the GN3200, a single spindle two-axis high precision chucking lathe with integrated loading; GN 3200W, a two spindle, cymbalta order online canada four-axis duplex spindle arrangement; and the two-axis GN4200 with extended slide strokes and gantry loading. In addition, the highly successful five-axis Citizen L12, and ever popular B-series, which has expanded capacity to 16 mm in the 16E, will be shown alongside the top-of-the-range 10-axis M32-VIII.
From Citizen-Miyano’s fixed headstock range, in addition to the new BNJ, a seven-axis BNE-51MSY with two 12 station turrets and an eight-axis BNA-42GTY with eight station turret plus a gang tool post with the ability to carry up to 45 tools will also be producing sample components.
Central to the newly developed Citizen L32 is its modular design and extra wide, easy access, rising operator door and additional rear access for setting and the capability to enable the machine to be configured from a package of ‘function modules’ to meet their needs. It is delivered in guide bush and non-guide bush formats as standard and bar capacities of 32 mm as standard and 35+ mm as an option. The new series of three models span from a five-axis machine with 30 tool capacity to a highly flexible seven-axis version having 40 tools plus a B-axis, and Y2-axis to the back tool post.
The event opens its doors between 0900 and 1700 on Tuesday and Thursday with lunch provided, but also running into Wednesday evening to 2130 when the now, highly sociable tradition of Citizen Machinery’s Curry Evening will be staged.
