Machine Description

The next generation of VARIAXIS performance, the VARIAXIS i-800 NEO Vertical Machining Center delivers advanced multiple-surface simultaneous machining capability in a faster, more compact machine. In addition to the series’ standard tilting/rotary table with roller gear cam technology and its high-rigidity construction, the NEO configuration offers a greater range of automation and spindle options as well as numerous improvements throughout the machine. These features – along with the new MAZATROL SmoothAi CNC and its range of AI-powered SMOOTH TECHNOLOGY solutions – make this the most flexible VARIAXIS machine yet.


With a high-performance standard spindle and a complete range of optional configurations, the VARIAXIS i-800 NEO can cover a wide range of material and application requirements.

The VARIAXIS i Series’ 5-axis machining capability reduces cycle time with effective process integration – and with expanded axis strokes, faster rapid traverse rates, longer maximum tool length and shorter tool-to-tool loading times, among other improvements, the new NEO configuration makes it possible to produce an even greater variety of workpieces efficiently.


  • Handles parts up to 39.37" in diameter and 19.69" high (up to 28.74" in diameter with 2-pallet changer).
  • 50-taper spindle with compact nose design increases Z-axis stroke.
  • Expanded axis strokes and rapid traverse rates for greater production efficiency.
  • Tool storage capacities from 30 to 120 tools offer high flexibility.
  • Wait times for the next tool reduced to 4.3 seconds from chip to chip.
  • Integrates with a wider range of optional automation systems, from integrated 2-pallet changing to PALLETECH, for lights-out operations.
  • Next-generation MAZATROL SmoothAi CNC for the highest level of programming and production efficiency.
