Yamazaki Mazak Corporation has announced the start of domestic sales of the OPTIPLEX 3015 DDL which is a new laser cutting machine equipped with state of the art laser technology – the Direct Diode Laser.
At WMTS 2017, Mazak Canada will demonstrate how the QTN 450M turning center with Multi-Tasking DONE IN ONE® capabilities boosts productivity and reduces cycle times for large-diameter, shaft-type part manufacturing in industries such as oil and gas. The company will also run simulations of its MAZATROL SmoothX CNC, the industry’s fastest most progressive machine tool control, in booth 213 during the show that takes place June 6-8 in Edmonton, Alberta.
At PMTS 2017, taking place April 25 – 27 in Columbus, Ohio, Mazak will showcase several machining solutions that enable shops to cost effectively achieve huge gains in productivity. In booth 349, the company will feature its new QUICK TURN PRIMOS 100, QUICK TURN UNIVERSAL (QTU) 200MSY and VC-500A5X machine models, each with a different level of CNC control technology and able to easily process wide varieties of parts.
Most shops today have some level of Multi-Tasking capabilities, one machining center that combines several cutting processes to reduce job setup time, increase capacity, improve machining accuracy and conserve valuable shop floor space. But is it always best to use a Multi-Tasking machine, or are there times when using a milling machine and/or separate turning machine is a better option?
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.
Mazak continues to fortify its industry leadership in HYBRID Multi-Tasking machine technology with the introduction of its new INTEGREX i-200S AM (Additive Manufacturing). With an innovative multi-laser deposition system, the machine provides both additive and subtractive capabilities. Shops can not only turn, mill and drill, but also build part features and perform laser marking all on the same machine and in single setups for DONE IN ONE® production.
The new SUPER TURBO-X 3015 Fiber series is the latest generation of Mazak’s highly popular SUPER TURBO-X lasers, which have sold more than 4,000 machines in Europe since 1990. Until now, the SUPER TURBO-X has always been a CO2 laser, but the latest machine utilises fibre laser technology to deliver faster cutting times and lower running costs.
