Mazak Corporation will spotlight highly advanced multitasking solutions that bring increased accuracy, efficiency and productivity to the gear manufacturing process. In Booth 111, attendees will watch the Quick Turn Nexus 250-II MSY multitasking turning center and Integrex i-300ST multitasking machine in action as they perform Done-In-One machining to produce a variety of gears. When a machine offers Done-In-One, it handles all processes from raw material input through final machining. Additionally, Mazak application experts will be available to advise attendees on how to properly implement the latest multitasking technologies and processes in gear manufacturing, as well as provide valuable insight into achieving improved part quality, shortened lead times and the lowest cost of ownership.
The Quick Turn Nexus 250-II MSY multitasking turning center, with a maximum machining diameter of 13.78", efficiently and productively processes medium- to largesized gears. As an “MSY” configuration, it features milling and Y-axis capability as well as main and second turning spindles for Done-In-One processing. Such capabilities put
the Quick Turn Nexus 250-II MSY in Level 2 of Mazakʼs 5 Levels of multitasking.
The highly versatile Integrex i-300ST multitasking machine combines the capabilities of a high-powered turning center and full-function machining center to produce medium- to large-sized gears in single setups. As an “ST” configuration, it features a second turning spindle (S) for Done-In-One machining and a lower turret (T), eliminating multiple setups and non-cut time. Furthermore, with full 5-axis capability, the Integrex i-300ST easily processes round parts with secondary operations, fully prismatic parts from solid or casting (chucked or bar fed work), or sculptured parts. Because of its full simultaneous 5-axis capability, the Integrex i-300ST is a Level 4 machine in Mazakʼs 5 Levels of Multitasking. With 91 Multitasking configurations from which to choose, Mazak developed its 5 Levels of Multi-Tasking as an effective way for manufacturers to determine the best multi-tasking technology for meeting their specific application and process needs.
