The Matsuura MX-330 is a compact five axis vertical machining centre for small part machining available from Canadian distributor Elliott Matsuura Canada.

This model is built in a compact frame but ensures a sufficient machining area for machining a maximum workpiece size of D420 mm x H320 mm [D16.53 x H12.59 in.]. In addition to the fundamental concept of the MX series, the MX-330 has introduced a new concept: simple automation.

In general, the smaller the workpiece size, the shorter the machining time becomes; consequently, an extended unmanned production system is required to improve productivity. Such a system tends to be complex and expensive. However, the MX-330 offers a package option, consisting of a PC10 (floor pallet system) and 90-tool magazine, at a reasonable price. In addition, the machine is optionally equipped with a robot interface, which is compatible with a universal robot. The MX-330 is the optimal machine for those considering 5-axis machining with automation.

The highly capable spindle of 15,000 min-1 is provided as standard. According to the workpiece type to be machined, a powerful type of 15,000 min-1 (119.3 Nm) and a high-speed type of 20,000 min-1 are also optionally available.

In parallel with the MX-330 development, the 3-axis vertical machining centre, V.Plus-550, has undergone a full model change. Both MX-330 and V.Plus-550 have a compact footprint and can be installed within a space equivalent to that of an existing machine of the same class.
