The Nexus VCN 510C /50 machine from Mazak Corp. is the first of the Nexus family to have a 50-taper spindle for increased metal-removal capabilities. The VMC offers 30 hp, 6,000 rpm, and 206 foot-pounds of torque, with a 1:2 fixed-gear reducer.  A 30-hp, 4,000-rpm, 310 foot-pound spindle with a 1:3 fixed gear reducer is also available to meet heavier cutting requirements.


A rapid traverse rate of 1,417 ipm at 0.5 G acceleration and a 2.0-second chip-to-chip time further reduces non-cutting time in favor of increased production, says the company. The machine is equipped with a 24-tool capacity ATC for extra tool storage. Other features include XYZ axes travel of 41", 20" and 23" respectively; a table size of 51" × 21"; and a maximum work weight of 2,640 lbs.

  • Composites Machining for the F-35

    Lockheed Martin’s precision machining of composite skin sections for the F-35 provides part of the reason why this plane saves money for U.S. taxpayers. That machining makes the plane compelling in ways that have led other countries to take up some of the cost. Here is a look at a high-value, highly engineered machining process for the Joint Strike Fighter aircraft.
