Toyoda to Host Oil & Gas Industry Symposium

TOYOTECH 2017 will cover trends and innovations in the oil and gas market.

JTEKT Toyoda Americas Corporation recently announced the details of TOYOTECH 2017: Oil, Gas & Valve Symposium.

The event will explore sophisticated machining practices and tools for manufacturers serving and influenced by the energy industry. Toyoda Americas and its industry partners will demonstrate innovative technologies and discuss trending solutions to optimize process specification needs in anticipation of this year’s increased capital investment.

Attendees will have the opportunity to experience live demonstrations of Toyoda’s latest cutting techniques and machines fitted with oil & gas specific tooling.


Featured Machine Tools at TOYOTECH

  • FH1250SW Horizontal Machining Center | The SW machine’s quill spindle offers conventional machining and boring capabilities in a single setup. During TOYOTECH, the FH1250SW will feature contour boring of a quintuplex fluid end’s tapered internal chamber using a mechanically actuated U-axis head. 
  • FH630SX-i Horizontal Machining Center | Designed for the highest 630mm-class material removal rate in the industry of 4140 material utilizing Toyoda’s proprietary high-torque spindle and latest HMI control system.
  • SB316YM Bridge Machining Center | This double column bridge mill will use internal synchronization cutting parameters for roughing of a 50 Rockwell chrome alloy quintuplex fluid end.
  • FH500J Horizontal Machining Center |Featuring oil & gas specific tooling from SECO, the 50 taper, 15,000 RPM horizontal machining center uses a grinding wheel to machine bearing race channels inside a swivel joint in one setup and half the cycle time of a conventional lathe process.

  • Takisawa VTL750M Vertical Turning Center| The 50HP machine will be cutting a bottom bonnet using its own ZF GearBox and Sandvik Prime cutting technology.
  • VTC1616 Vertical Turning Center | Turning, drilling and tapping on a 25,000 lbs. 4140 oil & gas component.
  • GL5 Cylindrical Grinding Machine |Made for dedicated processes in a high-production environment, the cylindrical machine featuring a hydrostatic wheelhead will demonstrate a plunger being ground.
  • GS300H Multitasking Horizontal Machining | This multi-purpose HMC can replace 5 different dedicated machine tools in the production of a limited slip differential side gear using less than 20 percent of the original floor space, through gear skiving, turning and milling.
