The technical center is designed to provide a showroom for MCC’s to demonstrate equipment, including ones equipped with the company’s Laser System L2000. In addition to machines permanently on display, the facility will also be used to perform customer test cutting and complete process development requirements.

According to the company, its CINCOM L12 is a state-of-the-art Swiss CNC automatic lathe manufactured by Citizen Machinery Co. The user-friendly editing function, which utilizes multi-line multi-axes programming, along with superimposed and synchronized control, make setting up the most complex jobs easy. The L12 also has a detachable guide bushing that allows for effective machining of both long and short workpieces. In addition, the new Type X features a modular tooling system and a Y2 axis on the back spindle, which expands the range of usable tools.

The new 12 mm laser-cutting and welding machine employs the MCC L2000 laser system. The L2000 is completely interfaced to the L12 control with the cutting path and offsets fully managed and edited in the control. According to the company, this allows for program control of all laser settings, adjustments, shapes, and machining functions from a single program.

MCC is headquartered in Allendale, NJ, with additional sales-service offices in California, Massachusetts, and Illinois. The Massachusetts facility also houses MCC’s research and development.
