PRODUCT SHOWCASE: Mazak to Demonstrate Products at IMTS 2012

Mazak with demonstrate its manufacturing systems and solutions for part production challenges at it the IMTS show in Chicago at booth S-8300.

The booth will also feature kiosks dedicated to specific industries where attendees can consult with expert Mazak applications engineers to gain valuable manufacturing insight and ideas for improving turning, milling, five-axis and multi-tasking processes as well as learn how automation can further boost productivity.

Advanced simultaneous five-axis machining technology is critical in the production of large, extremely complex aerospace components. Mazak is continuously developing new technologies for this industry segment, and at IMTS will demonstrate its INTEGREX i-630V Multi-Tasking Machine, which is one of many Mazak machines well suited for the aerospace and other large component manufacturing sectors. This Multi-Tasking Machine performs turning and milling and provides B-axis and C-axis capabilities. Its turning and milling spindles allow for powerful and accurate full simultaneous five-axis machining.

At the show, the INTEGREX i-630V will operate in a fully automated manufacturing system that showcases the company’s unique Multi-Tasking Automation Technology. The system will incorporate the INTEGREX i-630V and a Mazak ORBITEC 20 Large Part Machining Center linked together with a PALLETECH Manufacturing System, showing manufacturers how they can combine different types of machining operations for Done-In-One production. The INTEGREX i-630V and the ORBITEC 20 both utilize a common pallet size, allowing parts to undergo various turning operations on the ORBITEC 20 then transfer over to the INTEGREX i-630V for completion without re-fixturing.
