MACHINE DESCRIPTION:

The MEGA TURN 500M Vertical Turning Center brings unmatched speed, torque and accuracy to large part production. Especially beneficial in automotive manufacturing applications, the small-footprint machine is easily automated within a minimal amount of floor space.

Designed and built in the Mazak Kentucky manufacturing plant, the MEGA TURN 500M has a powerful integral spindle/motor headstock that minimizes vibration and generates high-torque for big part machining. The machine’s vertical orientation works with gravity for easier loading and unloading and assists in chip evacuation.

As an M configuration, the machine has a rotary tool spindle that allows it to perform secondary machining operations such as milling and drilling. As a result, shops can process parts in a single machine cycle for an overall boost in productivity and workpiece accuracy.

MACHINE CHARACTERISTICS:

  • High-torque integral spindle/motor for heavy-duty machining
  • Rigid 12-position drum turret for rapid tool indexing
  • Rotary tool milling capabilities improve overall productivity
  • Accurate C-axis indexing
  • Optional automatic tool changer adds flexibility for all static tooling
  • Linear roller guides provide rigidity and positioning accuracy
  • Efficient chip disposal prevents heat from affecting the machine bed
  • Vertical design allows for easy workpiece loading/unloading
  • Available in mirrored left/right configurations for easy workpiece transfer
