Recently the demand for automation systems for small, complex workpieces, such as those found in the medical equipment and aerospace industries, for the production of a wide variety of parts in small lot sizes is increasing. Yamazaki Mazak has developed the VARIAXIS i-300 AWC in response to this increasing demand based on MAZAK FMS production expertise accumulated over many years.
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.
Made in Kentucky, the VC-500A/5X Vertical Machining Center has a trunnion-style rotary/tilt table that allows for the accurate, cost-effective processing of small complex parts via full 5-axis machining. The machine also features the MAZATROL SmoothX CNC that allows for easier programming and faster part cycle times, in either EIA or MAZATROL conversational.
