WHAT TO EXPECT
Visit Mazak at the 2018 Montréal Manufacturing Technology Show (MMTS) to check out our innovative automation and machine tool solutions in action to learn how you can improve your productivity with highly accurate and cost-effective full 5-axis machining. We will be colocated with distributor A.W. Miller in booth #136 for the event, Quebéc’s premier manufacturing event.
The booth will feature the Kentucky-built VC-500A/5X, which comes standard equipped with a robust, high-performance 12,000-rpm spindle that delivers exceptional metal removal capabilities in all common materials, including steel, aluminum and cast iron. Optional spindle speeds of 15,000 and 20,000 rpm and tool magazine capacities of up to 60 tools are available to address a variety of part-production requirements, while its trunnion-style rotary/tilt table allows for highly accurate and cost-effective full 5-axis machining. For MMTS 2018, Mazak will show off the power and flexibility of the VC-500A/5X when equipped with the 15,000-rpm spindle and 60-tool magazine.
We also plan to demonstrate articulated robot solutions on a simulated Mazak lathe. Primarily a customized type of product, articulated robots can handle part transfers and peripheral operations in addition to simplifying the challenges associated with heavy or awkwardly shaped parts. Whether a manufacturer needs a simple two-joint robot or a complex seven-joint robot, Mazak strives to offer a range of options to ensure customers can obtain increased throughput and better part quality no matter their production needs.
