Nidec Machine Tool Announces New Models Enhancing MV-BxII Series with Exceptional Productivity


Nidec Machine Tool Corporation has recently introduced two cutting-edge models, MV16BxII and MV12BxII, to its MV-BxII series of double-column machining centers. These innovative additions, available for purchase starting December 1, 2023, promise to deliver superior productivity and eco-friendly operations.

Founded in 1973 in Kyoto, Japan, Nidec Corporation, under the leadership of Chairman Shigenobu Nagamori, made history in 1979 by being the first company globally to successfully bring to market a direct drive spindle motor for Hard Disk Drives (HDDs) based on a brushless DC motor. Over the years, Nidec has transformed into a leading worldwide motor manufacturer with a robust presence, boasting over 300 subsidiaries, a workforce exceeding 100,000 individuals, and an impressive annual sales figure surpassing $13 billion. Nidec’s extensive range of motors, drives, generators, and associated products play pivotal roles in diverse applications such as computers, smartphones, home appliances, automobiles, manufacturing plants, and robotics.

Key Features of MV16BxII and MV12BxII:

  1. Compact Design and Enhanced Efficiency:
    • MV16BxII: A compact unit with dimensions of 1.7 x 2.2m, featuring a 400mm wider y-axis movement compared to its predecessor, MV12BxII.
    • MV12BxII: A machine measuring 1.3 x 3.0m, offering a 1,400mm wider x-axis movement, providing versatility for various machining needs.
  2. High-Speed Machining:
    • Both models achieve a best-in-class fast-forwarding axis speed of 32m/min, significantly reducing non-machining time.
    • MV16BxII is equipped with a No. 50 main axis boasting a maximum rotating speed of 7,000min-1, ensuring efficient cutting operations.
  3. Enhanced Load Capacity:
    • MV16BxII supports a maximum loading mass of 8t, making it suitable for handling heavy workpieces.
    • MV12BxII, with a 3,000mm-long table and a maximum loading mass of 5t, excels in managing log workpieces.
  4. High Rigidity and Stability:
    • MV16BxII features a high-rigidity structure with three lines of linear guides on its X axis, minimizing deflection during high-speed operations.
    • Double-anchor mechanism in both models ensures high-speed movements and superior rigidity for stable machining.
  5. Eco-Friendly Operations:
    • Adopting ECO operation technology, both models reduce power consumption and running costs.
    • Electric power units and grease lubricant agent contribute to lower electric consumption and decreased workloads during maintenance.
