Automating a Matsuura machine

Matsuura is a Japanese manufacturer of various milling machines. Considering automating your Matsuura with a loading robot? If so, Cellro’s Xcelerate is the right solution for you. Whether the machine involved is new or an existing machine, Cellro can automate 3-, 4-, and 5-axis Matsuura milling machines, allowing you to achieve more spindle hours and generate more output.

Which Matsuura machines can Cellro automate?

Cellro has the most experience in automating machines from the Matsuura MX series. Matsuura MX series machines load from the front. Xcelerate can be combined with all sorts of Matsuura machines to process small to medium-sized batches unmanned. Current Xcelerate users commend the loading robot’s user-friendliness and flexibility. Cellro also previously automated a Matsuura machine using Skid for MCM Liessel.

The machines operate together seamlessly thanks to close collaboration between Matsuura and Cellro. Matsuura uses the Fanuc control system on all their machines. For Cellro, it’s a simple matter to link a loading robot to a CNC machine with Fanuc control. This makes the decision to automate a Matsuura even more attractive. With Cellro’s robot loading system, the Matsuura machine can keep working day and night.

High precision with an automated Matsuura

Matsuura normally removes the table on their 5-axis milling machines. The table is usually grooved to allow for mounting and machining of specific parts at various places on the table. When a CNC machine is automated, a pallet is placed in the machine and the items to be milled are positioned on this pallet.

This combination of a table, a zero-point clamping system, a clamp and a workpiece wastes a lot of space. Matsuura therefore omits the table, mounting the zero-point clamping system directly on the fifth axis. This improves accuracy and provides a larger machining workspace.

G.A.B. Metaal is based in Bergeijk and focuses on the production of both series work and single pieces and prototypes. G.A.B. Metaal specialises in the manufacture of complex products for the aviation, medical and energy industries, among others. In 2011 they started automating to gain experience first. G.A.B. Metaal now has several machining centres, two of which are operated by Xcelerates.

Automating a highly repetitive production cycle 24/7 is relatively straightforward. But when there are many different products and an unpredictable need, automation is a big challenge. This was also the case with the Dutch machining company MCM. MCM previously had two Cellro Round systems in use and had reached the full 24/7 capacity of both systems. In order to grow further, it decided to invest in a third, fully automated production platform. This time, MCM opted for a powerful combination of a Cellro Ultimate and a Matsuura MX850 5-axis machine, collectively known as the Dominator.

Xcelerate is designed to load workpieces into a single machine. From lathes to milling machines and from bench grinders to measuring benches, Xcelerate enables automatic finishing of production series. The automatic loading system can be linked to both new and existing CNC machines. This enables unmanned production for a wide range of machines, so you can focus on more complicated tasks in the workplace. Moreover, Xcelerate can continue operating automatically after closing time.
