FLORENCE, Ky., April 5, 2023 – During the Precision Machining Technology Show (PMTS) 2023, Mazak will showcase several models from its new SYNCREX Series of Swiss-style machines in booth 3053. Among them will be the SYNCREX 38/9 that accommodates bar stock up to 1.5” (38mm), and incorporates a removable guide bushing adapter that allows operators to preset guide bushings outside of the machine. The SYNCREX 38/9 is also convertible and can be quickly changed over to run in chucker mode for added part processing flexibility.
Mazak’s SYNCREX Swiss-style Series encompasses models featuring seven, eight and nine-axis configurations and are optimized for precision high-production of small parts. SYNCREX “9X” models deliver added part processing flexibility as they are capable of full 5-axis contouring while using the B-axis tool post.
Like all models in the series, the SYNCREX 38/9 is a sliding headstock machine constructed on the Mazak High Damping Composite Casting (HDCC). This unique high rigidity base provides greater vibration damping characteristics, less thermal growth and greater part surface capabilities when compared to a cast iron base machine.
Mazak's SYNCREX machines accommodate a maximum of 36 tools in a standard configuration: 20 static and 16 live. Mazak offers a full catalog of modular tool holders allowing their customers the tooling flexibility to meet their part requirements.
Additionally, Mazak offers an optional MT Tablet which creates a twin-screen system. The MT Tablet will allow the operator to work with offline programming systems (ESPRIT or AutoDesk-PartMaker) at the machine to help reduce set-up time and increase production.
Mazak SYNCREX machines sport the new MAZATROL SmoothSt and MAZATROL SmoothSt5 controls. Both controls feature the optional Mazak Swiss Setup Assist (MSSA) for fast and easy job setups along with the optional Mazak Dynamic Chip Control (MDCC) functionality. With Mazak’s intuitive and user friendly screens, the customer can quickly and easily touch off tools and prepare the machine for automatic cycle. Spending less time setting up the machine and more time in production.
Like all Mazak machine tools, SYNCREX machines are backed by Mazak's comprehensive 2-year warranty, industry-leading MPower complete customer care service and support program, and lifetime parts availability.
