The exhibition included the display of Mitsubishi Electric- M80V, the evolution in smart manufacturing, which provides high productivity and easy operability, Mitsubishi Electric- Drive Units MDS-E Series, MDS-EM Series, MDS-EJ Series as high-gain servo/spindle drives, and with capability of fully enhancing drive system performance, Mitsubishi Electric- Servo Motor Units HG Series as Nano-control compatible servo motor, that boosts smooth rotation and outstanding acceleration capabilities, well suited to various types of machines, Mitsubishi Electric- Spindle Motors equipped with high speed and high efficiency. Latest product introduced by Mitsubishi Electric- CNC that is, M80V & M800V and its variants were exhibited to experience the application and robust working of this recently launched product.
In IoT segment, Mitsubishi Electric presented the concept “Remote4U” etc. as the solution to support new-age manufacturing in the country. The concept was used to show the remote diagnosis which enables machine engineers to operate remotely with a tablet connected. It allows improved work efficiency for the machine tool operators and frees them from the constraints of time & space and also enables them to work remotely.
As a milestone for IMTEX-2023, Mitsubishi Electric CNC launched ME-connect which is a mobile based application for its Customers and end users. The mobile application will help the Customers to see the status of their Repair requests and Service/Maintenance personnel who will be able to use this technology to remotely keep a track of their machine’s information at all times. Prototype of an Educational machine called TEACH-T has also been launched in this exhibition to encourage skill development. This simple Turning machine is designed as an aid to strengthen the educational institutions in India. It is equipped with E80 Computerized Numeric Controller which can provide state-of-the-art education facilities for the technical students with the required skills in the metal cutting industry which can contribute and support the Skill India Mission.
