ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, IL (February 10, 2020) – JTEKT Toyoda Americas Corporation and Ace Micromatic Group have formed a strategic alliance to offer a complete range of high-speed production machines to their customers. JTEKT Toyoda Americas has signed a long-term agreement to be the exclusive importer of the entire Ace Micromatic machining line.
Immediately, Toyoda will be introducing several new specific machine classes to its production product range. Among these machines is the Gemini XL Twin Spindle vertical machining center. The twin spindles, combined with fast linear guideways and traverse rates of 1,968 ipm (50 m/min), makes the Gemini XL series best suited for industries with high-volume production such as automotive, aerospace, and medical.
The MCV450XL vertical machining center is another machine from the production line series – equipped with an integrated rotary pallet changer with factory integrated overhead hydraulics, a 12,000 RPM direct drive spindle, and FANUC fine mold package with 400 block look ahead. Linear pallet changers are also available as an option with this machine and across the entire VMC lineup.
Another exciting machine that will be available is the DTC-400 XL high-speed drill tap machining center. This compact, powerful machine is loaded with high-speed spindle options, up to 24 tools, and rapid feedrates up to 2,362 ipm (60 m/min).
“We are thrilled to provide our customers with these new solutions for high production manufacturing.” says Graham Roeder, Toyoda National Product Manager. “The partnership is a strong strategic fit, leveraging both companies’ respective strengths in production machining. We believe Toyoda’s standard of excellence is mirrored with these products, further strengthening our company’s ability to serve the needs in any production line manufacturing.”
These production-type machine tools will be offered across the US and Canadian markets. Toyoda will stock machines as well as parts inventory for this new strategic partnership. Some machine models are available for immediate delivery. Sales and support are provided by JTEKT Toyoda Americas Corporation in Arlington Heights, Illinois.
