Handling manipulator for ring rolling mill automatic line developed. (2015)

Mitsubishi Nagasaki Machinery, as the forging press and ring rolling mill manufacturer, had developed the world’s first “handling manipulator”.
By the combination of the linkage mechanism and the hydraulic servo, the automatic inserting of the hot material to the ring rolling mill can be made at high speed with high accuracy. This developed machine has the manipulating capacity of maximum weight 500 kg and maximum outer diameter 600 mm. Also, by the intercommunication via wireless LAN between the ring rolling mill and the handling manipulator, the latest operating specification using a tablet terminal is realized. This makes it possible that the ring rolling mill automatic line can be provided as a package. We are certain that this could be helpful for the user’s productivity improvement.

Completed delivery of our next generation manipulator . (2015)
MRB-3000 Ring mill

This Mitsubishi Nagasaki Machinery’s next generation 50tm manipulator greatly improves productivity and is capable of handling products large and small, making excellent use of its detachable “long arm”. Compared to our conventional type, acceleration has increased by 35% and rotational torque has been improved by 25%. In addition to this, the stopping precision has also increased. This results in shorter forging time and reduction of number of heats. In other words, better efficiency and reduced process time. The weight reduction of the manipulator and the smaller motor leads to a power usage reduction of approximately 23%.

Started joint research on sewage sludge energy conversion and volume reduction. (2008)

Together with the Japan Institute of Wastewater Engineering Technology and the Kajima Corporation, the cooperation of the city of Nagasaki (Mayor: Tomihisa Taue) and the support of The Eighteenth Bank, Ltd. (President, Representative Executive Officer and Director: Masatoshi Miyawaki), Mitsubishi Nagasaki Machinery has set up a demonstration plant for the “joint research on sewage sludge energy conversion and volume reduction” at the West Nagasaki Sewage Treatment plant. This plant converts sludge from the sewage treatment plant, which cleans wastewater discharged from households, into biogas and reduces industrial waste discharge or processing cost of sludge with 60 ~ 80%. Our company intends to spread this system to Sewage treatment plants across the nation.
