Nidec Machine Tool Corporation is expanding its large machine tool business as a core business. The MVR-Cx series were the first in a series that has been introduced at the “New Product Preview” from Tuesday, October 12 to Friday, October 15, and from Monday, October 18 to Wednesday, October 20 at the newly built large machine tool showroom at the main plant, after which the machine will be available in the market.

The MVR-Cx series is a simple, easy-to-use machine that efficiently performs single-item and high-mix low-volume production in machining general large parts such as can structures. The newly developed “Nidec Navi” operation support function, which reduces the production time from receiving a job to shipping a product, comes as a standard feature. A wide variety of original screens are available to simplify initial machining settings, such as program creation, debugging, and centering of the workpiece before machining, which used to be time-consuming in one-product and high-mix low-volume productions. In addition to the guidance to make the program easy to operate, a simple collision prevention function (opt.) is also available, making it easy to work with for those new to machine operation. Furthermore, 3D visual guidance is projected on the operation screen to support each operation until recovery when machine trouble occurs. This allows the company's support center to remotely access the machine at the customer's factory to monitor the machine status and provide prompt support based on the monitored information.

The maximum spindle speeds are 4000 rpm and 6000 rpm (Opt.), and the standard specification is a cylindrical attachment that can fit inside a can manufacturing structure. Grease is used as lubricant for the main spindle and attachments, cutting energy costs by reducing air supply.

Moreover, the assembly structure that can be installed in small or large locations and can be carried in by a 15-ton truck or installed in a narrow space.
