MHI to Exhibit Machine Tools at "EASTPO 2013" in Shanghai, Targe

MHI to Exhibit Machine Tools at "EASTPO 2013" in Shanghai, Targeting Sales
Expansion in East China Region 
- Demonstration of Gear Machining by Dry-cut Gear Shaping Machine - 
Tokyo, July 1, 2013 - (JCN Newswire) -  Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI)
will exhibit its machine tools at "EASTPO 2013," the 15th Shanghai
International Machine Tool Fair to be held in Shanghai, China, for four days
from July 2 through 5. The MHI exhibit will feature a live demonstration of
gear machining by a fully "dry-cut" gear shaping machine that the
company began to manufacture at its local machine tool plant in Changshu,
Jiangsu Province, this spring. As dry-cut machines do not require the use of
any cutting oil, they help to facilitate cleaner working environments and are
also energy-saving. This will be the first occasion for MHI to introduce its
locally produced gear shaping machine at an EASTPO event. 
MHI Exhibit: 
- Live machining demonstration of the "SE25A" dry-cut gear shaping
machine
- Panel presentation of the "MVR Series" double-column, 5-face
milling machines, together with actual mold samples machined
- Display of cutting tools for gear machining and machined sample workpieces 
SE25A Gear Shaping Machine 
The SE25A is capable of high-speed, high-precision machining of up to 250
millimeter diameter gear workpieces of complex shape, such as stepped gears, by
reciprocal motion of the cutters. Its dry-cut machining system, which MHI was
first in the world to develop (in 1997), results in the SE25A producing no oil
mist or waste oil in the machining process. Dry-cut machining thus helps to
improve the working environment and also boosts ease of machine maintenance,
and it further enables significant energy savings and enhanced economic
performance. When combined with modularized peripheral equipment and a material
transfer system, even higher productivity is achievable through production line
automation. 
Aims of MHI's EASTPO Exhibits 
Through its exhibits at EASTPO events, MHI aims to demonstrate its capability
to provide high-speed, high-performance, technologically advanced machines of
top quality - systems that simultaneously enhance environmental and economic
performance - as expeditiously, and with the same business conditions, as local
companies, by producing at its plant in Changshu. This year's exhibit is
to focus on the company's SE25A gear shaping machine; last year a gear
hobbing machine produced at the plant was shown. At EASTPO, MHI primarily
targets manufacturers in eastern China - especially Shanghai and Jiangsu and
Zhejiang Provinces - in a quest to expand sales. In addition to demonstrating
its SE25A gear shaping machine, the company will also present its capability to
provide solutions through its comprehensive lineup of machine tools meeting
diverse customer needs, not only in the area of gear machining but also in the
production of workpieces of all varieties. 
"EASTPO 2013": the 15th Shanghai International Machine Tool Fair 
EASTPO, which has taken place annually since 1999, is the second-largest
machine tool fair in China after the China International Machine Tool Show
(CIMT), an event held every second year since the first fair in Beijing in
1989. EASTPO typically attracts numerous visitors from the automobile,
construction machinery and industrial machinery industries, which are clustered
in eastern China. This year's EASTPO will take place at the Shanghai New
International Expo Center (SNIEC). 
General Background 
China is the world's largest machine tool market, and in tandem with the
country's strong economic growth robust capital investment is expected to
continue going forward. Eastern China is a core market for MHI's machine
tools as local manufacturers today are keenly interested in high-efficiency
production of gears and machine parts, including production automation, due to
increasing labor costs and other factors. MHI launched its machine tool plant
in Changshu and began local production of gear hobbing machines in the spring
of 2011. The company has subsequently expanded its production portfolio at the
plant to include double-column, 5-face milling machines and gear shaping
machines.
