New Mira-7L at the University of  Toronto

The NS CNC Team

August 28, 2020

Earlier, we wrote about Professor Andre Simpson’s Research Group at the University of Toronto and their use of the Mira-6 for manufacturing of copper coil sensors https://nscnc.com/news/customer-success-stories/u-of-t/

Even though the project was an incredible success there was room for improvement in certain areas of the process. And Professor Simpson had asked the team at NSCNC to create a new machine, equipped with a powerful laser, which would be able to cut at diameters much smaller than what was possible before. And we are pleased to announce that as of August 2020 we have delivered and launched this brand new machine at the University of Toronto at the Scarborough campus.

With the correct lens, the laser can be focused to less than a micron and the machine was developed with 0.1 micron (1/10,000th of a mm) precision. As the is in the deep UV range, it cuts without generating heat. With these capabilities, Professor Simpson and his research group will develop novel sensors to look inside individual cells and understand the chemistry behind growth and toxicity.

JUNWEX Jewelry Show in Moscow

The NS CNC Team

October 08, 2019

UNWEX is the largest jewelry show in Russia. It takes place at the VDNKh (Exhibition of Achievements of National Economy). This is a huge exhibition complex, built in Moscow back in the last century, in the 1930’s. It is famous for its golden fountains, sculptures and magnificent palaces. This show is open to the public. Unlike American shows, all participants in the show in Moscow can sell their products directly to the show.

All of the major Russian jewelry manufacturers participate in the show. In addition, there are many companies that make amber products. The show is very popular with Chinese buyers and re-sellers. It was amazing to see a Chinese re-seller walking with a cellphone and showing products on the counter to his customer in China. There were many different types of traditional Russian silver tableware, including hand-painted trays.

Our machines were shown in the equipment pavilion at the exposition of our Russian dealer Company, JMO. NS CNC has been selling machines in the Russian market for many years now. NS CNC is well known there and there is constant and growing interest in our company and its products. There were a lot of meetings with machine users at the show. As always, we received many orders for new machines.

New Mira Bit

The NS CNC Team

September 15, 2019

In September of 2019, NS CNC released a new version of our famous Mira Bit. This milling bit was developed by the company back in 2013. Since then, the bit design has been repeatedly improved. It is indispensable for 5-axis milling, as it has a maximum milling depth of 1″ (26 mm) and has a spherical tip with a diameter of 0.1 mm. This new model has a significantly improved flute geometry.

This achieves much better removal of wax chips and increases milling efficiency. Before releasing our new milling bit, the company subjected the mill to many months of testing under various conditions. The results of these tests exceeded all of our expectations. We hope that our users will try the new bit and be as pleased with its performance as we are.

JCK Las Vegas Show

The NS CNC Team

June 15, 2019

This year, JCK Las Vegas moved to another exhibition complex, which is the Sands Expo Convention Center. The center is smaller in size than Mandalay Bay, but it’s located in the heart of Las Vegas and is positioned closer to all the central hotels. But this central position has created significant difficulties with transportation.

The place to stop the cars in front of the main entrance was very small, and there were so many cars and taxis that the exhibitors preferred to leave their cars several blocks away and continue on foot. The format of the show also changed a bit. There was no change in the location and the exhibit displays of major US jewelry companies.

The show takes place in Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York during March 10 – 12, 2019. Javits Center is a giant all-glass building of unique design on the banks of the Hudson River.

The show is quite small. It is several times smaller than the show in Las Vegas, in all only a few thousand visitors. But it is very important and very effective for promoting equipment and tools in the jewelry market of New York, and especially for 47th Street.

This is the Diamond District and the center of the entire jewelry and diamond industry in the world. It is here that prices for
