For MCM Machining Centres Manufacturing SpA, 2015 was the best of the last decade and as forecasted, turnover of MCM from Viglozone in the province of Piacenza surpassed 60 million Euros.
For Farnborough 2016, at Stand A90 in Hall 3, MCM will showcase the best of its product range. The base products of MCM’s integrated offer are its multi-process machining centres that combine turning, milling, grinding, and cutting operations in one single machine. Around the machine, the integration of the process is ensured by the use of elements of flexible automation, standard or customized. The management and optimization of the production process is completed by control and supervision software jFMX, specially developed over the course of 30 years by MCE, the software and computer architecture division of MCM.
Exemplifying the underlying concept of MCM’s integrated offer are the machines and solutions that the company had at EMO: a 5-axis tilting head i.Tank machining centre, a 4-axis Clock Dynamic 700 machining centre, and a robotized deburring island as testimony of MCM’s capacity to integrate different operations into complete solutions (machines of different sizes and performance and a special robotized application).
At EMO 2015, the Siemens stand (Hall 3, Stand E06-F03) was an MCM Clock Dynamic 5-axis Multitasking machining centre equipped with a Siemens 840 Solution Line CNC system and multitasking features: milling, drilling, turning, grinding, and power skiving, all operations with high technological parameters. By realizing the entire program with Siemens CNC software – without the help of special CAD/CAM systems, done by workers who are technologically expert but without any specific training as programmers – MCM shows how, by using the right technologies and designs and working with competent partners, one can find solutions to fully achieve all the objectives of multitasking.
During EMO, the company offered its clients the opportunity to see first-hand the two aerospace plants, currently installed and being tested at the Vigolzone facility.
The first plant is for the production of wheels and brake systems. In this case, MCM has created a flexible system intended for the turning, milling, and drilling of wheels and hydraulic and electric crowns, consisting of two i.Tank 1600 Multitasking machining centres with a horizontal axis turning spindle, installed within an FMS line, and a third machine currently being built.
The second plant is for the production of discs in nickel super-alloy for aircraft engines. Again, the solution fully represents MCM’s design and technological capabilities. This is an FMS system made up of two i.Tank 1300 Multitasking machining centres for milling and turning operations on a horizontal axis, equipped with a splitter group and a series of options that significantly customize configuration and performance. The plant will incorporate another four machines in 2016, and an important programmed extension in 2017.
MCM are proud to have Stocdon Limited, Cheltenham, UK as their partners. Contacts for Stocdon:
