High-Output Machining Technology

At this year's Precision Machining Technology Show (PMTS) being held August 10-12 in Cleveland, OH, Mazak will highlight its Kentucky-built Ez Series of machines and CNC designed for medium- to high-volume small-part applications.

Mazak technology in action will include the QT-Ez 12MSY Horizontal Turning Machine, the VC-Ez 20 Vertical Machining Center, the HQR-200MSY Multi-Tasking Machine and the company's new MAZATROL SmoothEz CNC. Ez Series machines are designed to give job shops and other manufacturers affordable access to Mazak technology and engineering expertise.

The QT-Ez 12MSY is a turning center with milling and Y-axis off-centerline capabilities paired with a second turning spindle for complete DONE IN ONE part processing. A range of automation solutions is available, from a bar feeder and parts catcher to full cooperative robot systems. The QT-Ez 12MSY features a 20" bed length. With a larger A2-8 spindle nose, the machine delivers 3,300 RPM, 30 HP and 285 ft-lbs. of torque and features a 3" bar capacity. Its milling spindle puts out 6,000 RPM with 10 HP and 32.5 ft-lbs. of torque. The second turning spindle delivers 6,000 RPM, with a 6" chuck offered with an optional through-hole package for shaft transfer applications.

Mazak's 3-axis VC-Ez 20 features a standard 12,000 RPM, 25 HP spindle and offers an optional 15,000 RPM, 29.5 HP spindle. To keep spindles in the cut, the machine's auto tool changer accommodates 30 tools, with 50 as an option. The machine features a C-frame design with X- and Y-axis motion via moving table and saddle. For repeatable part precision, guideway systems incorporate Mazak's high-rigidity MX linear roller guides, while pre-tensioned ball screws offer precise axis movement. Auger-type chip removal systems provide economical operation, with the option of a hinge-type chip conveyor that ships affixed to the machine to eliminate the cost of a second shipping pallet.

Mazak will feature its HQR-200MSY Multi-Tasking Machine equipped with highly productive twin spindles and twin turrets for increased part processing and high throughput. The machine makes easy work of complex workpieces, processing them complete from raw material to finished part in single set-up DONE IN ONE operation. Offering equal Y-axis off-center capability in both its upper and lower turrets, the HQR-200MSY shortens part cycle times through balanced cutting and simultaneous 1st and 2nd-op processing. The machine also integrates easily with a bar feeder or robot loader/unloader for lights-out production.

Mazak's new MAZATROL SmoothEz control provides an efficient, user-friendly interface that is easy to learn, especially for new operators. The 15" capacitive touchscreen display accommodates a full-width on-screen keyboard or up to 60 lines of code. The NC system operates on two 800 MHz CPUs with an expanded 512 MB of DDR3-SDRAM memory. In addition to its redesigned LAUNCHER screen, the new control also offers an expanded range of software features, including SMOOTH Machining Configuration, QUICK MAZATROL and MAZATROL TWINS. Like all Mazak controls, the MAZATROL SmoothEz CNC offers operators access to both EIA/ISO and MAZATROL conversational programming modes. In addition to standard G-codes, the control can use conversationally presented questions to gather information and generate a part program automatically. Enhanced MAZATROL features, including new end mill pecking cycles for point machining and support for more precise chamfering, further improve the programming mode's usability.
