Live 3D Printing & Live 5 Axis Machining At Southern Manufacturing 2020
At the forthcoming Southern Manufacturing 2020 exhibition, Stand E260, Matsuura Machinery Ltd will be exhibiting the MX-520 5 axis CNC machine tool and HP Jet Fusion 580 3D colour printer, working in harmony to demonstrate the real-world benefits of current production strategies being supplied to UK manufacturers from Matsuura.
Exclusively for the show, Matsuura will be machining live on the MX-520, utilising fixtures and work-holding printed on the HP Multi-Jet Fusion 4200 3D printer, demonstrating the incredible time and cost savings generated by “printing” work-holding in hours rather than waiting weeks, sometimes months, for conventional metal solutions to be supplied.
The MX-520 is Matsuura’s best-selling single table 5-axis CNC machine tool, aimed primarily at companies making the transition from 3 to 5 axis operations, although many of Matsuura’s established SME customers utilising the multi-pallet MAM72 series of 5 axis machines are also significant investors.
Visitors to stand E260, can also see live 3D colour printing on the HP Jet Fusion 580 and discuss the capabilities of this printer with the Matsuura team of 3D experts. Roger Howkins, Managing Director at Matsuura Machinery Ltd commented: “As the UK’s premier applications and engineering led reseller of HP Multi-Jet Fusion 3D Printers in the UK, our strength and depth of engineering knowledge in both additive and subtractive disciplines, and the real world benefits for metal cutting
Companies to diversify into 3D printing, will be clearly demonstrated at Southern Manufacturing 2020.”
“The two machines we have selected to bring to next year’s exhibition perfectly highlight our commitment to providing quality, innovative and tailored solutions to enhance our customers production facilities. Our team of application engineers are busy creating new and exclusive demo’s, work-holdings and fixtures which we’re excited to unveil in February.”
