Mori Seiki's Original Technologies
I want to do high-precision machining. I want to shorten machining times. I want more efficient production. For customers involved in cutting, these are never-ending problems. The demands for high precision, high speed and high efficiency are also increasing without limits. In response to our customers' concerns, which are evolving every day, we want to continue our tireless technological investigations. This is how Mori Seiki thinks. Technologies which are rewriting the long history of machine tools - that's Mori Seiki's "original technology."
【Driven at the Center of Gravity】
Technology to minimize vibration
When a structural component of the machine moves, rotation vibration proportional to the distance between the driving point and the center of gravity is generated. By driving structural components at their center of gravity, DCG (Driven at the Center of Gravity) technology minimizes vibration, and optimizes the quality of machined surfaces, accuracy, machining time, and tool life. Only Mori Seiki has Driven at the Center of Gravity machines.
【Direct Drive Motor】
The world's fastest rotary axis drive system
Because the drive power is transmitted directly, without going through gears, these motors enable highly effi cient drive, and there is no backlash either. And because there are fewer parts to wear out, there is less maintenance and longer product life. Transmission effi ciency is dramatically improved compared with conventional worm gear systems, allowing highspeed feed. And at Mori Seiki we manufacture these motors 100% in-house, for even higher quality and reliability.
【Built-in Motor Turret】
A revolution in turret milling
In the milling structure of conventional lathes, the power from the motor was transmitted through many parts such as gears and belts, causing heat and vibration over a wide area. Mori Seiki has placed the motor inside the turret for the world's fi rst "built-in" structure. This revolutionary design minimizes heat generation and vibration while eliminating transmission losses. The new design increases both machining accuracy and cutting performance.
【Octagonal Ram Construction】
Octagonal shape for a revolutionary feed
Mori Seiki has developed the ORC (Octagonal Ram Construction), a revolutionary feed structure with an octagonal shaped ram. The ORC preserves the advantage of conventional square guides, their superior damping characteristics, while overcoming their disadvantage, the sliding resistance caused by high-speed travel. The heatsymmetrical structure minimizes thermal displacement. The center of the moving part stays in the same position, allowing high-precision machining during high-speed travel.
【A New High-Performance Operating System】
Unmatched performance and outstanding operability
MAPPS Ⅳ has many user-friendly features including the ESPRIT® CAM software which helps to minimize programming time, a large 19-inch display and PC-type keyboard which allow more intuitive operation, and enhanced maintenance functions. MAPPS IV, which has been developed with a focus on the operator's perspective, provides strong support for our customers throughout the world.
High-speed, high-accuracy, and high-resolution scales
Magnescale is a magnetic scale suitable for positioning control on a machine tool. The scale can be used under various environments, including dew condensation and oily environments, which are too harsh for optical scales that detect an array of dark and bright lines. Since the scale has the same linear expansion coeffi cient with that of cast iron used for machine tool structures, it exhibits the same behavior as the machine even in environments where temperature changes. This scale contributes to high-precision and stable machining.
【High-speed in-machine coordinate measuring system】
The fusion of the machine tool and measuring system
S-Quad (Smart Scan Sensing System) is a measuring system that combines a machine tool with a non-contact laser sensor. S-Quad offers high-speed scanning of free forms and curved surfaces with a small curvature which are diffi cult to measure by probing. The scanned data can be displayed in 3D or used to compare with CAD data. Based on the measured shape data, the S-Quad instantly generates optimal tool paths and performs inprocess measurement, which contributes to reducing air-cutting. The collaboration between machining and measurement allows machines to become more intelligent and to measure workpieces that are too large to measure with a coordinate measuring machine.
