EMO 2017: Mikron Machining presents digital innovations

Agno, September 2017 – Mikron Machining presented some digital innovations at EMO 2017 in Hanover – including its new control software. Mikron made interesting contacts and received numerous enquiries at the world's largest metalworking trade fair.

At the EMO 2017 trade fair in Hanover, Mikron Machining presented the new control software "Joblist" for the Mikron Multistep XT-200 machining system, as well as other innovations. This software allows various parts to be processed at the same time on the same system, which involves several CNC programs and clamping devices. Joblist enables maximum flexibility and efficiency for even the smallest batch sizes. In addition to the Mikron Multistep XT-200, Mikron Machining also presented a live demonstration of the world's fastest and most productive rotary transfer machine: the Mikron Multistar LX-24. In a single-cycle operation it can produce up to 150 parts a minute, and in a four-cycle operation up to 600 parts.
