Have You Considered Your Machine Tool DNA from Mother Machines to Nano Machines?
ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL, April 26, 2021
A machine to make other machines possible. Any guesses on what that machine might be?
From machining components for the largest airplanes, ships, trains, and even the largest earth moving equipment in the world, the machine tool used to create these modern marvels needs to have extreme accuracy and a level of precision that is not easily attainable. Enter the “Mother Machine” from Shibaura Machine, which is responsible for producing the machine tools that manufacture these critical components that make up these products.
These Mother Machine tool solutions include double column machines, vertical turning lathes, horizontal boring mills, 5 axis machining centers. What makes up all of these precise machining solutions is the same foundation for all Shibaura Machines.
Machine Tool DNA
The relationship between a Mother Machine and Nano Machine Technology is similar to that of a mother and child in that they share the same basic DNA. Shibaura Machine uses the same foundation when developing and designing all of these machine tools to ensure accuracy and reliability is achieved not just when the machine is new, but down the road 10, 20, even 30+ years from now.
The DNA on all machines from Shibaura Machine consists of the same four critical components:
- Accuracy: Each machine maintains the same basic building blocks in design to ensure precision alignment and geometry relationships.
- Dependability: The machines are capable of accommodating complex workpieces and with proper maintenance will continually achieve excellence.
- Flexibility: Being able to scale major and minor machine components and having the power to handle a variety of materials with the appropriate spindle configurations.
- Quality: Through purpose built machining solutions, the quality of components and the CNC control system is unmatched.
This core-DNA allows customers peace-of-mind no matter what machine you purchase. Customers can rest assured the same level of quality exists in our entire family of machine tools.
