JOIN MAZAK IN THE ACCELERATION OF 3D MANUFACTURING
As a featured sponsor of this year’s RAPID + TCT Event, Mazak will conduct a presentation on its HYBRID Multi-Tasking Machine technology that combines both additive and subtractive part processes within the same machine platform. The company will also feature one of the models – the VC 500AM – from its HYBRID Multi-Tasking Series of machines.
Designed and manufactured in Florence, Kentucky, the Mazak VC-500 AM HYBRID Multi-Tasking machine combines full 5-axis capability and additive technology to revolutionize product design, reduce time to market and cut R&D costs.
The machine brings together Mazak’s considerable expertise in building Multi-Tasking machines, experience with fiber laser technology and extensive additive knowledge. Ideal for manufacturers who require optimum part finish and high accuracy, the VC-500 AM builds part features to near net shape up to ten times faster than other comparable systems quickly and easily without wasting expensive material and losing time by subtracting large amounts of metal from a solid material using normal Multi-Tasking machining technology.
