3D/Additive/Alternative Machining Centers Turning/Milling

More than 30 manufacturing systems ranging from cost-efficient turning and milling solutions to state-of-the-art hybrid technologies will be on display at Mazak’s Discover 2019 education and technology event enabling manufacturers to reimagine part-production operations.

Horizontal milling
The HCN-5000 delivers performance, precision, reliability and production value to the high-volume production of large, heavy parts. In addition to a range of optional spindle types and power options, the machine is available with Mazak’s Multi-Pallet Pool (MPP) system. Additional horizontal milling centers on display will include the HC-5000 and the HCN-6800.

Vertical milling
The complete range of vertical milling solutions will be shown, including the VCN-570C with a 30hp, 15,000rpm standard spindle. The machine will be demonstrated alongside a RoboJob part-loading system, highlighting reduced setup time with high repeatability and accuracy.

Other vertical milling solutions will include the FJV-35/80, VC-300A, VC-500C/2PC, VCN-575C and VTC-200C vertical machining centers (VMC).

A QTU-350 HP with RoboJob will highlight turning automation at an affordable price point, offering advanced technology, productivity advantages, and cost effectiveness for shops of all sizes, featuring a high-performance, 30hp, 3,500rpm spindle.

Other turning centers shown with RoboJob will be the Mega Turn 900M and Quick Turn 450.

The VC-500A/5X Kentucky-built VMC with trunnion-style rotary/tilt table allows precise, cost-effective processing of small complex parts via full 5-axis machining. It comes standard with a high-performance spindle for exceptional metal removal capabilities in all common materials; optional spindle speeds are available.

Several additional 5-axis machining centers will be at the event, including the HCR-5000, UD-400/5X, Variaxis i-800 and VTC-800/30 SR 5-axis machining centers.

The Integrex Series will be represented by several advanced models featuring the latest technology, including an Integrex I-300ST with the new Spindle Health Monitor and the Integrex i-400S with Mazak’s Mazatrol SmoothAI CNC. Machines will also include automation solutions, such as the GR100 gantry loader paired with the Quick Turn 250MSY.

Other multi-tasking machines on display include the HQR-250MSY, Integrex i-100 Bartac-S, Integrex i-300ST with Spindle Health Monitor, Integrex i-400S with SmoothAI CNC, Integrex i-400ST, Integrex i-500W, Multiplex W-200Y, Quick Turn 200MSY, Quick Turn 250MSY with GR100, Quick Turn 550MY, and SQR 250.

Hybrid multi-tasking
Each Hybrid multi-tasking machine at DISCOVER 2019 will have an example of a cutting-edge manufacturing technique paired with Mazak machines and its subtractive capabilities. Auto Gear (AG), which leverages advanced manufacturing technology and the Smooth gear cutting software suite for unsurpassed gear hobbing, skiving, and milling ease, will appear on the Integrex i-200ST AG.

For additive manufacturing (AM) capabilities, Mazak will display both versions of its VC-500A/5X AM. The first includes multi-laser metal deposition technology made for complex part interiors, cladding operations, and other fine AM work while the VC-500A/5X AM HWD will demonstrate the hot wire deposition (HWD) system that uses arc welding technology in combination with laser heating to maximize metal deposition for fast AM processes. Mazak will also demonstrate the friction stir welding (FSW) capabilities of its VTC-300C FSW.

Discover 2019 takes place at Mazak’s North American manufacturing headquarters in Florence, Kentucky, November 5-7 and 12-13.
