From an expanded set of spindle and automation options to new innovations for ATC shutters, tool magazines and pallet-changer doors – improvements throughout the machine help save time on every cycle.

Greater tool length and moment, new AI-powered software and larger Y-axis LM guides all contribute to a level of performance that enables shops to manufacture more parts of even higher quality.

Here are some highligts:

Standard 10,000 rpm spindle and newly developed optional high-torque and high-speed spindles.

Reduced next-tool wait times.

Available with standard 43-tool drum-type magazine and optional 60-tool drum-type or 80, 120 or 160-tool chain-type magazines.

Optional high-torque direct-drive motor table yields best-in-class indexing time with high-accuracy rotary scale positioning.

Integrates with a wide range of optional automation systems, from integrated 2-pallet changer to PALLETECH, for lights-out operations.

Faster, more accurate thermal displacement minimization with machine learning using Ai Thermal Shield.

Nd:YAG or fiber laser for micro welding?

Choosing the best option for your application

By Geoff Shannon, Amada Miyachi America

Four lasers can be used for micro welding: pulsed neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet (Nd:YAG), continuous wave (CW) fiber, quasi continuous wave (QCW) fiber, and nanosecond fiber. Each laser type offers unique features that work best for specific applications. Here is a comparison of the pulsed Nd:YAG laser with the three fiber laser options, and a discussion of why and when one might be chosen over the other. In some cases, several options may work; in that case, cost of ownership and serviceability can tip the scales.
