Mazak Showcases QUICK TURN NEXUS 450-II MY/LBB at IMTS
September 06, 2012
Mazak announces that it will showcase its QUICK TURN NEXUS 450-II MY/LBB (Long Boring Bar) turning center at IMTS.
The machine features an optional 40” long boring bar for rigid and precise deep-hole boring to depths of 31.5”, and because the machine brings unmatched productivity and reduced cycle times across a wide range of long, large-diameter shaft-type part applications, it is well suited for the energy, heavy equipment and other large component industries. The machine’s rigid construction also provides high-precision machining over long periods of time.
For improving part processing operations for virtually any industry, including contract machining, Mazak will present its INTEGREX i-200S Multi-Tasking machine for efficiently and accurately processing mid-size complex components using twin spindles and a milling spindle that generates as much power as spindles often found on vertical machining centers. Fitting into most facilities with its space-saving footprint of 157.1” x 110.2”, the INTEGREX i-200S turns, drills, taps and mills, while offering off-centerline and full simultaneous 5-axis contouring. The machine provides Done-In-One capability as it incorporates all processes from raw material input through final machining in a single setup. As such, the INTEGREX i-200S reduces production lead times, improves machining accuracy and lowers operating expenses.
Many of the machining systems at the Mazak booth also feature the company’s new MAZATROL MATRIX 2 CNC control designed specifically for optimized five-axis machining. For IMTS attendees interested in learning how to better tailor Mazak machines to specific manufacturing applications, Mazak unveils its 3-4-5 guide that helps identify the best level of technology for specific operations. In addition, attendees can learn about MTConnect, a royalty free open standard for communication with all types of factory equipment over an Ethernet network, and how that can simplify production system management.
