■Development background
The reduction of cycle time is one of the challenges constantly faced by the machine tool industry. As a machine tool manufacturer, addressing this challenge of cycle time reduction head-on was a major theme in the development process. In addition, in this development, we have proceeded with the idea of contributing to cycle time reduction without causing any burden to our customers. How can we ensure that customers can continue using their existing machining programs without any modifications? We considered various perspectives and implemented numerous features, with a focus on reducing idle time, which will ultimately shorten the cycle time. With ChronoCut, let’s experience the cycle time reduction.

■Comment from Shogo Nakamura/CEO
We’re excited to announce that ChronoCut is now standard in many Nakamura-Tome models. This development was inspired by the requests of our global customers, and we’re delighted to have made your ideas a reality. As a prevalent challenge in today’s manufacturing industry, many operations find themselves constantly racing against the clock. Consequently, it can be challenging to fully focus on the tasks that truly matter. ChronoCut is a feature that, when installed, speeds up your processing jobs. By eliminating idle time, there’s no need to compromise the quality of your work. By incorporating this innovative feature, we aim to create time together with our customers and want to cut the burden of manufacturing.
