Mazak’s Integrex i-630V multitasking machine performs heavy-duty five-axis cutting via high-torque turning and milling spindles, including B- and C-axis capabilities. X-, Y- and Z-axis travels measure 58" × 41.3" × 41.3" (1,475 × 2,047 × 2,047 mm) and rapid traverse rates are 2,047 ipm (52 m/min.).
The machine features Mazak’s Matrix 2 CNC for optimized five-axis machining. A five-axis spline interpolation function included in the control’s software provides smooth toolpaths from long block-by-block programs, tool vector control and improved surface finishes.
Three milling spindles are available for different material requirements: a 50-taper 10,000-rpm spindle, a 5,000-rpm spindle with 387 foot-pounds of torque and a 15,000-rpm high-speed spindle. Square and round pallet shapes are available for the two-pallet changer to handle workpieces ranging to 41.5" (1,050 mm) in diameter and 39.3" (1,000 mm) in height. Square pallets measure 24.8" × 24.8" (630 × 630 mm), while round pallets are 31.5" (800 mm) in diameter.
The machine can operate in a fully automated manufacturing system paired with Mazak’s Orbitech 20 large-part machining center linked together with the Palletech manufacturing system. Parts can undergo turning operations on the Orbitech 20 and then transfer to the Integrex i-630V for completion without refixturing.
Robot-Fed Multitasking Lathe with Conveyor
This machine can run for a long time without any operator intervention, and users can machine finished parts from slug stock or cast blanks while achieving the same high productivity as if they were machining from barstock, the company says.
