  Mitsubishi Electric to Launch Highly Operable & Accurate New CNC Series –


Business Wire

TOKYO -- October 30, 2012

Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (TOKYO: 6503) announced today the launch of a
new line of computerized numerical controllers (CNC), the MITSUBISHI CNC E70
Series, which extends the company’s tradition of extra-operable and accurate
high-end CNCs for industrial production. Sales will begin on December 3, 2012
and prices will be available by quotation. The company expects to produce
3,000 units per month.

The E70 Series, which offers world-class ease of use, high speed and accuracy,
and reduced takt time, will be showcased at the 26th Japan International
Machine Tool Fair (JIMTOF 2012) at Tokyo Big Sight in Japan from November 1–6.

Precise mass production of automobiles and electronics requires machine tools
that achieve exceptional accuracy and productivity, including through the
incorporation of highly operable CNCs capable of high-capacity operation. The
rising use of factory automation, particularly in China, Korea, Taiwan and
emerging countries such as Brazil and India, has triggered increased demand
for CNC machine tools.

Main Features

Simple operability for stress-free operations

- Employs the same simplified screen configuration employed popularly in the
M700V and M70V series

- Wide array of support tools, including parameter editor tool to reduce
initial setup time

- Features attachment and wiring of higher-end models for simplified machine
design and assembly

- Ethernet interface enables connection with PCs for data input/output

High-accuracy, nanometer-increment position interpolation

- Achieves exceptionally smooth cutting surfaces thanks to position
interpolation in 1nm increments

- Analog output enables use of inverters for spindles
