Yesterday, we received at our facilities in Puçol, Valencia, the new Nakamura-Tome WY150 compact loader. A CNC multitasking lathe with two (2) Y axes (±45mm and ±35mm) and opposite spindle, which allows us to cut simultaneously with 2 tools, a feature that guarantees more balanced processes and faster process times.
Thanks to the incorporation of this technology, we will be able to expand our industrial capacity to manufacture parts up to 515 mm. in length and 190 mm. in diameter. The lathe has 2 turrets with capacity for 48 tools and also, one of its main features is the incorporation of a loader/feeder integrated in the machine. With it, we further reduce the cycle time of those parts that require loading/unloading of preforms or cut-to-length blanks, eliminating the placement task performed by the person operating the CNC.
A new investment that contributes to our efficiency and growth, covering short term needs and having more capacity available for new projects in the turning area.
