Machining Value and Productivity

Mazak Corporation will feature its QUICK TURN 250MSY multi-tasking machine, QT-PRIMOS 100 turning center with GR100 gantry loader and the VCN-570C vertical machining center (VMC). In booth #1709, Mazak, in partnership with Premier Engineering LLC, will give visitors the opportunity to experience the machines under full power and running real-world parts.

The QUICK TURN 250MSY offers several productivity-enhancing features including a direct-drive turret design, high-torque main spindle, a powerful milling spindle and Mazak's MAZATROL SmoothG CNC control. The Kentucky-built machine has two turning spindles, a rotary tool milling spindle and Y-axis capabilities for single set-up DONE IN ONE precision part processing operations. The machine's 12-position, direct-drive turret eliminates the use of belts for improved part surface finishes and reduced maintenance. It accepts both VDI and bolt-on tooling.

As a space-saving machine that requires only 55" x 49" of floor space, Mazak's QTPRIMOS 100, when paired with the GR100, provides shops with fully automated part loading/unloading for high production efficiency. Mazak pre-engineered the GR100 for easy integration with the QT-PRIMOS machine platform, which means it requires no special robot/machine interface and is easy to program. For application flexibility, two GR100 workpiece table configurations are available, as is end-of-arm tooling with three-jaw grippers.

All GR100 robots come equipped with a simple-to-configure D3 two-sided, three-jaw gripping hand with a part range up to 7" in diameter, 6" in length and total weight of 44 lbs. The field-proven D3 hand design allows shops to load/unload a wide variety of chuck work. To reduce machine idle time, Mazak complements the GR100 with a fast, servo-driven automatic door that allows the robot entry into the machine envelope at a 3,937 IPM rapid rate on the robot's A-axis and 7,087 IPM rapid rate on its B-axis.

Featuring a rigid, box-shaped bed design, the QT-PRIMOS 100 has a maximum swing of 17.48" and can accommodate parts up to 7.09" in diameter and 7.87" long. Axis travels for the machine are 4.33" in X and 9.45" in Z, with low-friction linear guides providing high-speed positioning for these axes. A tailstock enables the machine to process shaft-type workpieces.

For SOUTH-TEC attendees who want to process large parts or multiple small workpieces in single machine set-ups, Mazak's Kentucky-built VCN-570C offers advanced technology, performance and value for an expansive variety of metalcutting applications. A wide range of spindle options allows shops to achieve an effective balance of speed and torque for their particular machining needs and workpiece materials.

Contributing to the machine's productivity is a fast traverse rate of 1,654 IPM in the X, Y and Z axes. A servo-driven automatic tool changer can be combined with an optional 60-tool magazine to bring even more part-processing versatility through reduced tool set-ups for more spindle uptime and more productivity.
