One size does not fit all when it comes to shops and their machine tool needs. That’s why Mazak offers such a diverse line of technology, including those machining systems that are extremely cost effective without sacrificing performance. But how is this accomplished? The designs and features of Mazak’s simple but innovative QTU series of CNC Turning Centers and the VCU series of Vertical Machining Centers offer the answer to that question.
1. COMMON COMPONENTS
Engineers design machines with as much commonality as possible. For instance, some machines use the same base castings, spindles, turrets, and tool changers. Common components optimize the efficiency of Mazak’s production. And when Mazak makes machines more efficiently, that’s an added value for customers.
2. ADVANCED CONTROL TECHNOLOGY
Many of Mazak’s most cost-effective technologies, like QTU and VCU machines, run on the newest control system – MAZATROL SmoothC. It incorporates a wide variety of advanced programming functions for complete ease of use and high-speed, high-accuracy machining performance in all axes. Through such advanced control technology, the high-value MAZATROL SmoothC system applies across a broader range of machines and for more complex applications than previous controls.
3. THE RIGHT HARDWARE FOR THE JOB
Simple yet innovative machines excel across the broad range of demands in general machining applications. They are a perfect fit for job shops working predominately in steel and aluminum as well as high-volume automotive manufacturers that need a machine to execute simple cuts quickly. Mazak reassessed electronic systems across the board and fit its machines with the most cost-effective solutions.
4. STAND-OUT QUALITY AND SUPPORT
Mazak guarantees the quality of every machine it produces – from any of its machine series. Reliability is paramount to the productivity and cost-effectiveness of your operation. You can be sure your Mazak will work just as hard as you do.
