Mazak machines for small-to-medium subcontractors

Mazak has introduced the low-cost Integrex J series of multi-tasking machines for small- to medium-sized subcontracting companies.

Done-in-one machining technology is now accessible for any company, irrespective of size, and they can start manufacturing parts faster, more efficiently and more profitably,’ said Tony Saunders, Yamazaki Mazak’s sales director.

The Integrex machines economically produce small batch sizes, adding flexibility to any machine shop.

Integrex J series machines enable customers to reduce the time to machine the first-off component by 64 per cent, when compared with using CNC turning and machining centres to machine the same part.

To achieve this, Integrex J series machines feature a B-axis milling/turning spindle and tool carousel with 20 tools as standard (36/72 as an option).

Integrex J also makes use of the Mazatrol Matrix control system, which simplifies the complex programming tasks through use of the Mazatrol conversational programming techniques.

When compared with ISO programming, the Mazatrol system typically reduces the number of lines of code by 89 per cent.

The Integrex J-200 is being shown at Mach 2010.

This particular machine features a milling (B-axis) 12,000rev/min (7.5kW/49Nm) spindle with a main 5,000rev/min (11kW and 161Nm) spindle; feed rates of 40m/min; an X-axis stroke of 450mm with 50mm of that below the centreline; and a Y-axis stroke of 200mm, giving +/-100 either side of the centreline (Z-axis movement is 550mm).

The B axis fitted to Integrex J series machines has 220deg of movement in 5deg increments, facing the chuck it can position at 30deg above the machine’s central axis and facing away from the chuck it can achieve at 10deg.

With a 200mm chuck and a 500mm maximum machining diameter, the Integrex J-200 has a machining capacity that contradicts the fact that the floorspace requirement is 3 x 2.43m, which, when compared with using conventional turning and machining centres;to produce the same work, is a reduction of 56 per cent, according to Mazak.
