VARIAXIS i-500

Process: 5-Axis, Vertical

MACHINE DESCRIPTION:

The VARIAXIS i-500 is a highly versatile full, simultaneous 5-axis Vertical Machining Center that performs multiple and complex curved surface machining on small complex workpieces with high-precision requirements in single setups.

The machine falls within Mazak's DONE IN ONE® concept by incorporating all processes from raw material input through final machining in just one machine. As such, the machine reduces production lead times, improves machining accuracy and lowers operating expenses.

The machine also offers high levels of productivity via extremely fast, high-rigidity spindles that can handle a wide variety of applications, from heavy-duty cutting to high-speed cutting of aluminum and other nonferrous material.

Optional two-pallet changer provides continuous machine operation and integration within a PALLETECH Manufacturing System for automated manufacturing.

MACHINE CHARACTERISTICS:

  • DONE IN ONE capability
  • Wide range of spindle speeds available for exceptional versatility
  • Reliable cam-driven tool changer offers higher productivity
  • Tool storage capacities up to 120 tools
  • High-rigidity table with roller gear cams eliminate backlash to ensure accuracy
