Mazak Features VCN-570C at DISCOVER 2021

FLORENCE, Ky., November 1, 2021 – At DISCOVER 2021, Mazak demonstrated its Kentucky-built VCN-570C Vertical Machining Center. Designed to process large or multiple small workpieces in single machine setups, the VCN-570C brings advanced technology, performance and value to an expansive range of metalworking applications.

To ensure fast, accurate hole threading, the VCN-570C demonstrated Mazak’s Smooth Synchronous Tapping Software as part of its MAZATROL SmoothG control. With the software, the machine generates faster acceleration/deceleration with maximum spindle torque utilization. It eliminates overshooting at the bottom of a hole, and a faster time constant reduces overall tapping cycle times.

Mazak’s MAZATROL SmoothG CNC offers the flexibility of both EIA/ISO programming as well as MAZATROL conversational programming that makes it fast and easy to generate programs for quick changeover or handle high-production part applications. The control features advanced hardware and software functions such as INTELLIGENT POCKET MILLING software, which enables faster metal removal rates in recessed pockets along with High-Gain Feed Forward Control, VARIABLE ACCELERATION CONTROL and SMOOTH Machining Configuration (SMC) for high-speed machining applications.

During the event, Smooth Engraving Software was demonstrated to show the simplicity of engraving letters, numbers and symbols on a workpiece without the need of a CAM system to generate the part program off line.

At the event, the VCN-570C featured a 15,000-rpm, 30-hp spindle. For extended operation, the machine was equipped with a servo-driven automatic tool changer (ATC) and tool magazine storage capacity of 30 tools. Mazak also offers a 48 and 60-tool capacity as optional.

The VCN-570C’s 22.440" (570-mm) Y-axis stroke and 51.2" (1300 mm) operator door opening further increases part size, ease of part loading and processing versatility. Additionally, the machine comes equipped with a standard crane access door to allow loading of large heavy parts more efficiently. Also contributing to the 3-axis machine’s productivity are a fast rapid traverse rate of 1,654 ipm in the X, Y and Z axes.
