Takumi USA to Debut 5-Axis Machining Centers at IMTS 2018

INDIANAPOLIS – Takumi USA will debut its new line of 5-axis machining centers at IMTS 2018. The new Takumi line includes the U600 (XYZ/AC Travels: 24.4″ x 39.4″ x 19.7″/ +30°-110° x 360°) and U800 (XYZ/AC Travels: 31.5″ x 39.3″ x 29.5″/±120° x 360°). Both machines utilize a trunnion style, 2-axis table and the Heidenhain TNC 640 control. The U800 is a high speed gantry machining center over the high torque table (800 mm platter) that features an 80 RPM twin torque motor A axis and a 100 RPM single torque motor C axis. The U series by Takumi was developed to achieve world-class performance for die & mold, aerospace and other high speed applications that require tighter tolerances.

The U800 will be featured at Takumi USA’s booth during IMTS with a 5-axis simultaneous cutting demonstration of a 20″ tall replica of the famous Venus De Milo sculpture. The reproduction will be produced in 4140 steel – showcasing the rigid machine construction, speed and superior part surface finish. Programming of the Venus De Milo will be provided in partnership with Cimquest Inc using Mastercam 5-axis toolpaths.

“We decided on the Venus De Milo sculpture for the demo on the new U800 because the Takumi tagline is The Art of Productivity, which is a rough translation of the word Takumi. And 5-Axis illustrates the art of productivity perfectly,” said Maggie Smith, Marketing Manager.

Additional booth events include a hybrid manufacturing process demonstration using a Takumi H12 in partnership with 3D Hybrid Solutions; and visitors will also learn how to “make more chips” with the Takumi Fanuc H control on the heavy-duty high-torque Takumi V11 machining center in a partnership with Greenleaf Corporation.

Visit Takumi USA at booth #338420 in the South Building (Level 3 – Metal Cutting) at McCormick Place for a demonstration schedule and to learn more about Takumi’s art of productivity.
