    Title:[New Machine] JX-200 | ATC Multitasking Machine with World’s Shortest Tool Spindle

    Youku for viewers in mainland China: 优酷网:https://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XNTg2ODEyOTMyOA==.html

    The JX-200 is an ATC multitasking machine equipped with the world’s shortest tool spindle “NT Smart Cube”.

    The compact tool spindle enables a wider range of workpiece applications such as boring and drilling to the workpiece end face. The existence of a lower turret makes possible to shorten the cycle time by simultaneous machining with the upper and lower tools. It also enables to support a workpiece with a turret center-support. Those flexible machining methods help to expand a range of applications.

    Stylish appearance with a LED light strip and body design characterized by a smooth form with beautiful curves symbolize not only the reinforcement of functions but also the evolution in all aspects of the new machine.

    The detailed information regarding functions and performance will be disclosed in late May.
    Please stay tune for the further update.

  • 【Press Release】3D Smart Pro AI Updated! New Shapes to be Processed.

    HAKUSAN, ISHIKAWA – Nakamura-Tome Precision Industry Co., Ltd. (CEO Shogo NAKAMURA) updated a programming software named “3D Smart Pro AI”.
    From this update, previously unsupported shapes such as a pocket shape and a groove shape both with fillets at the bottom can be processed.

    Outline of 3D Smart Pro AI
    This is a programming support software to generate a CNC program automatically by analyzing the shape of a workpiece, process path, cutting tools, cutting conditions and machining process from a 3D CAD model. AI is utilized in a part of the function and the machining processes, which rquires experrience, can be created automatically, thus this software enables anyone to program easily, quickly and properly.

    ■Contribute to the Improvement of Setup and Production Efficiency
    Auto-programming will be completed within one minute and drastically cut man-hour which used to be taken hours when operators made a program manually.
    In fact, in the example of an entry-leveled engineer, he took 420 minutes to create a program in the past, but succeeded to reduce the work time to 20 minutes by using 3D Smart Pro AI.

  • 【Press Release】Automation of geometry offset by a tool setter enables anyone to measure the geometry quickly and accurately!

    HAKUSAN, ISHIKAWA – Nakamura-Tome Precision Industry Co., Ltd (President Ken’ichi NAKAMURA) developed a tool-setting support function “Geometry Navigator”. This function automates a part of the conventional method to measure the tool geometry and enables any operators to set up the geometry offset easily.

    Geometry Navigator image


    ■ Outline of the Geometry Navigator
    The Geometry Navigator is a function to support operators by showing the guidance of a whole process to set the geometry offset by a tool setter, and automates all tool setup motion except for approaching at the beginning. Anyone is able to set tools easily and quickly because what the operators need to do is to operate a NC panel according to the guidance.
    Therefore, not only skilled operators but also unexperienced operators who are not used to work on the tool setting can work securely. Our study from trial runs by an unexperienced operator shows that this function achieved to reduce the setting time by about 45% when comparing the tool setting with and without the Geometry Navigator.

    ■ Comment from COO Shogo Nakamura
    When we use a machine tool, we have to set up tools and in this tool setting, the most requested function from customers to improve the efficiency of work is the process to measure and input geometry offsets.
    This process has been proceeded manually by touching a tool to a tool setter, but there are some problems that operators forget to measure some tool geometries or unexperienced operators take much more time to measure the tool.
    The Geometry Navigator aims to have anyone complete the setup quickly, easily and accurately by partially automating the work of measuring the tool geometry that is conventionally done by using a manual tool setter.
    I would like many people to use the Geometry Navigator to ease the tool setup occurring on a daily basis.

    ■ Consultation with Nakamura-Tome
    Nakamura-Tome welcomes any inquiries from customers not only about the Geometry Navigator but also about our products and machining. Please feel free to contact us via the link below.

  • 【Press Release】A new function “Drop Converter” eases multi-turret programming!

    HAKUSAN, ISHIKAWA – Nakamura-Tome Precision Industry Co., Ltd (President Ken’ichi NAKAMURA) developed a new function “Drop Converter”. This function enables to shift each process from one turret to other turrets easily and contributes to reduce operator’s workloads and to create a program shortly.

    Drop Converter image


    ■ Outline of the Drop Converter
    The Drop Converter is a function to copy and drop each process of a programing created for one-turret two-spindle machining to multiple-turret machining. When it transfers a process, the Drop Converter automatically converts Z-axis direction, M-code and G-code responding to the original turret and program. Therefore, this function achieves to expand one-turret two-spindle program to multi-turret program more simply at once.

    ■ Background of the development
    Ordinary, when operators copy and drop a process from one turret program to multiple turret programs, they need to modify the program manually. It requires operators to recognize the difference of the turrets to transfer sub programs included in the process or invert Z-axis direction correctly. We developed this function to reduce the complexity and enables anyone to create a multiple turret program easily.

    ■ Comment from COO Shogo Nakamura
    Multifunctional multitasking machines equipped with multiple turrets are showing up increasingly in the market in these days. This situation enhances the level of productivity and many types of manufacturing becomes possible.
    On the other hand, many customers suggest insecure feelings whether they are able to create a program for multiple turrets, or express they would like to make the program more easily. Then, the Drop Converter was developed.
    The most attractive point is this function can create all program if you create a one-turret program to machine on the both of the L-side and R-side spindles. I hope many people use the Drop Converter and create a program even with a multi-turret machine.

  • The New Video of SC-100X2 is Released.

    HAKUSAN, ISHIKAWA, September 22, 2021– Nakamura-Tome Precision Industry Co., Ltd. (President Ken’ichi NAKAMURA) released the new video of SC-100X2 on Tuesday, September 21, 2021 at 10:00 PM (JST).

    YouTube https://youtu.be/6_5BAqXvfx0

    【Introduction of SC-100X2

    The biggest point of this machine development is the X-axis on the right spindle, and the challenge in this project was to add the X-axis to the right spindle, secure machining capability and develop the technologies to shorten the cycle time at the same time.

    Superimposed machining is a breakthrough technology that enables simultaneous cutting with one turret, and SC-100X2 can create a superimposed machining program just by selecting the process to be machined together.

    By using the lower turret, you can also machine left and right at the same time using two tools. The lower turret has also an unload gripper as standard, making possible to quickly unload the part when finished.

    Please refer to the following webpage for the detailed specifications.

  • Stunning Promotion Video of an Existing Machine in Nakamura-Tome Lineups will Go Public.
