Headlining the category of horizontal mills is the HCN-5000, which brings performance, precision, reliability and production value to the high-volume production of large, heavy parts. In addition to the HCN-5000 with MPP, horizontal milling centers on display at the show will include the HC-5000 and the HCN-6800.
The company’s complete range of vertical milling solutions will be represented, including the VCN-570C, a vertical machining center that brings advanced technology, performance and value to an expansive variety of metal cutting applications. The machine will be demonstrated alongside a RoboJob part-loading system. In addition to the VCN-570C with RoboJob loader, vertical milling solutions at the show will include the FJV-35/80, VC-300A, VC-500C/2PC, VCN-575C and VTC-200C Vertical Machining Centers.
The QTU-350 HP turning machine will be presented with RoboJob. This machine offers advanced technology, productivity advantages and cost effectiveness for shops of all sizes. For greater levels of process versatility, the machine also features a powerful high-performance spindle package. Joining the QTU-350 HP with RoboJob will be the Mega Turn 900M and Quick Turn 450.
The company will demonstrate several five-axis machining centers, including the VC-500A/5X, a vertical machining center with a trunnion-style rotary/tilt table enables accurate, cost-effective processing of small complex parts via full five-axis machining. In addition, it will showcase the HCR-5000, UD-400/5X, VARIAXIS i-800 and VTC-800/30 SR five-axis machining centers.
The company will include several multi-tasking machines in the demonstrations, including the Integrex series, which will be represented by several advanced models sporting the latest technology. Machines will also include numerous automation solutions.
Each of the Hybrid Multi-Tasking machines will have an example of a cutting-edge manufacturing technique paired with Mazak machines and their subtractive capabilities. Auto Gear, which leverages advanced manufacturing technology and the Smooth Gear Cutting software suite for gear hobbing, skiving and milling ease, will appear on the Integrex i-200ST AG. Mazak will also demonstrate the friction stir welding capabilities of its VTC-300C FSW, and for additive manufacturing capabilities, the company will spotlight both versions of its VC-500A/5X AM.
