Designed for complex, mid-sized components, the Mazak Integrex i-200ST multitasking machine features a compact design, twin spindles, a lower turret and milling spindle for done-in-one productivity. The machine turns, drills, taps and mills while offering off-centerline and full simultaneous five-axis contouring.
Both turning spindles provide equal performance with speeds ranging to 5,000 rpm and C-axis turning control. Both spindles also have a bore capacity measuring 3" (76 mm) in diameter. For C-axis contouring versatility at either turning spindle, the multitasking machine’s vertically mounted milling spindle provides 30 hp (22 kW), 12,000 rpm and a rotating B-axis range of -30 degrees to +240 degrees. The company’s roller cam drive for the B axis ensures increased accuracy and rigidity, while providing zero backlash, the company says. A 36-tool (72-tool optional) magazine enables fast tool changes and provides tooling for continuous part processing.
The lower turret is equipped with nine turning tools. To reduce cycle times, the lower turret works in combination with the milling spindle that can be applied to either side of the headstock.
The MX Hybrid roller-guide system is incorporated to increase durability and repeatability. According to the company, it damps vibration, extends tool life, handles higher load capacities, accelerates and decelerates quickly, consumes less oil, and lasts longer with less required maintenance.
