MACHINES IN ACTION
Mazak will showcase several machining solutions that enable shops to cost effectively achieve huge gains in productivity. The company will feature its new QUICK TURN PRIMOS 100, QTU-200MSY and VC-500A/5X machine models, each with a different level of CNC control technology and able to easily process wide varieties of parts.
QUICK TURN PRIMOS
The QUICK TURN PRIMOS 100 is a compact turning center that requires just 55" x 49" of floor space. A 12-hp / 5,000-rpm turning spindle and 6" chuck. The machine’s upper drum-style turret holds eight tools and offers high-speed, non-lift turret indexing.
At the show, the machine will feature a GL01 Gantry Robot part delivery system equipped with a 10-pallet work stocker and dual parallel 3-jaw grippers with capacity for parts up to 2.95” in diameter and 2.54” long. With a compact design and rapid rates of 4,572 ipm B-axis and 3,556 ipm A-axis motion, the GL01 delivers extraordinarily efficient handling for high-volume, small-part production.
For optimum efficiency, accuracy and value, the QTU-200MSY Multi-Tasking is perfect for high-volume small parts production. The machine employs a 20-hp 6,000-rpm main spindle and a 10-hp 6,000-rpm second spindle for complete DONE IN ONE® performance. Mazak’s latest MAZATROL SmoothC control technology with new and improved features further enhances the machine’s cutting capabilities and makes it easy for operators to generate programs in EIA or MAZATROL conversational for basic turning, milling, drilling and tapping operations.
The full 5-axis VC-500A/5X Vertical Machining Center equipped with a trunnion-style rotary/tilt table allows for the accurate, cost-effective processing of small complex parts. The machine’s table tilts +110 degrees / -110 degrees in the B-axis and rotates 360 degrees in the C-axis and can accommodate workpiece weights up to 440 lbs.
The machine comes standard equipped with a 30-tool capacity tool magazine and a robust, high-performance CAT-40, 12,000-rpm spindle for exceptional metal removal capabilities in all common materials, including steel, aluminum and cast iron. With a MAZATROL SmoothX CNC, the machine provides fast and easy programming in either EIA or MAZATROL conversational for overall shorter part cycle times.
