I am looking into buying a Mori Seiki MV-Junior and a Nakamura Tome TMC 15. These would be my first mill and lathe and i was wondering if anyone could tell me how these machines are the pros and cons of them. Also i was wanting to know if these machines can send and receive programs from a CAM program. Any help would be great
the shop I work at has an MV-jr appromx 1985 vintage that just keeps plugging away making money!.....kinda low tech nowadays but really a workhorse. Ours has rs-232 comm port and we keep all our programs on the network. I don't think you can go wrong buying a used Mori....just make sure you see it running before you buy!
I have a Mori Seiki Frontier M1 1995 yr and its a great machine we run it every day and have been since it was new in 95. This machine and a mv-jr are the same machine the frontier cost less but not much different. This machine is slower than my other mori's but just as good.
