JTEKT Toyoda Americas Corp. and Ace Micromatic Group have formed a strategic alliance, signing a long-term agreement to offer the complete range of ACE high-speed production machines to the North American market.
Immediately, Toyoda will be introducing several new specific machine classes to its product range. Among these machines is the Gemini XL Twin Spindle vertical machining center. The twin spindles, combined with fast linear guideways and traverse rates of 1,968 ipm (50 m/min), makes the Gemini XL series best suited for industries with high-volume production such as automotive, aerospace, and medical.
The MCV450XL vertical machining center is equipped with an integrated rotary pallet changer with factory integrated overhead hydraulics, a 12,000 RPM direct drive spindle, and FANUC fine mold package with 400 block look ahead. Linear pallet changers are also available as an option with this machine and across the entire VMC lineup.
Another machine that will be available is the DTC-400 XL high-speed drill tap machining center. This compact, powerful machine is loaded with high-speed spindle options, up to 24 tools, and rapid feedrates up to 2,362 ipm (60 m/min).
