Process: Horizontal


The HCN-12500Q Horizontal Machining Center with quill head (Q) performs the operations of both a horizontal machining center and a traditional boring machine to boost part-processing flexibility and reduce setups for overall higher throughput.

For stability, reliability and accuracy, the HCN-12500Q’s double-column design centers the quill head to eliminate overhang or imbalance. The double column design also features a twin ball screw-driven Y axis that ensures fast, precise and smooth axis stroke extension and retraction.

When part of an automated Mazak PALLETECH cell, the HCN-12500Q further increases the cell’s overall versatility with DONE IN ONE® processing through the addition of deep boring and U-axis machining capabilities.


  • Quill-head features built-in motor, high-torque, direct-drive spindle for accurate machining for large workpieces
  • Linear drive guides
  • Angular contact bearings support Z-axis thrust for heavy-duty boring and drilling operations
  • Roller-type bearings provide stability during face milling and heavy roughing operations
  • Automatic tool changer available to further boost uninterrupted operation
  • Optional head changer and special operation attachments such as angled heads, U-axis boring tools and facing heads, U-axis OD turning heads and snout heads increase part processing flexibility
  • 2 pallet changer system
  • Automation ready for Mazak's PALLETECH System
