New to the Melbourne showroom and ready for immediate delivery is the Nakamura-Tome AS-200LMYS with twin spindles.

The AS-200LMYS sports three new features to the controller, which increases the machine’s safety features. The machine will not crash at the slightest collision as other machines do.



The new features to the controller include: 

NT Work Navigator.

Machining parts with non-round shapes, such as forgings or castings requires that the raw part Coordinates to be recognised by the CNC control. In order to achieve this without requiring extra cost or additional options, the NT Navigator is used.

It works just by touching the part with a simple inexpensive probe (mostly round bar mounted on a tool holder) and using the torque control feature of the Servo motor, which is to record required coordinates in the CNC. The NT Navigator is a cost cutting feature
in multitasking machines, eliminating the need for positioning fixtures and special clamping devices.

NT Airbag.

When unavoidable human error results in machine collision, there is no reason to panic. All Nakamura-Tome machines are equipped with a safety feature called “airbag” (overload detection), which will greatly reduce the impact force and prevent heavy damage to the machine.

NT Nurse 2.

NT Nurse is software that provides the operator with user-friendly support for operation, programming and production on the machine. Among vital features are phase recognition (a must for multitasking), direct chucking to prevent positioning error during transfer, and perfect synchronisation of the left and right-hand spindles. Other features included, are the load monitor for detecting tool wear and tool breakage, tool life management, operation condition monitoring.
