Multitasking VMC Processes Long Workpieces in Single Setup
The Variaxis i-700 from Mazak is a simultaneous five-axis, multitasking VMC.
Rapid traverse rates are 2,362 ipm (60 m/min.) in the X and Y axes and 2,205 ipm (56 m/min.) in the Z axis. The MX Hybrid roller guide system incorporated on the X, Y and Z axes is designed to be durable and reliable to provide long-term accuracy. It increases vibration damping to extend tool life, handles higher load capacities, quickly accelerates and decelerates to shorten cycle times, and uses oil efficiently, the company says.
