Mazak’s VTC-300 FSW Hybrid multitasking vertical machining center features friction stir welding (FSW) capabilities. FSW is said to produce a pure, clean weld that improves on the strength, quality and durability of MIG welding and other options, eliminating the problems of weakened material properties at the point of welds, according to the company.

The company will also be displaying its VC-300A/5X vertical machining center with five-axis rotary/tilt table and technology for high-precision small-parts processing. It will be producing a medical industry bone plate.

  • Drilling Deep Holes On A VMC

    The recipe for best results is simple: Start with a rigid machine, add a high pressure through-the-spindle coolant system, then combine these with the right drill geometry plus the right speeds and feeds.

  • Milling with Air

    ... not to mention grinding with air. Thanks to high speed spindles powered by shop air, this job shop expands the work its VMCs can do.

  • How One Shop Machines Advanced Ceramics

    Years of trial and error combined with the appropriate machining technology allow this company to produce custom parts made of alumina, zirconia, boron nitride and other advanced ceramic materials. One example of key machining technology is a five-axis machining center used exclusively to produce the complex, tightly toleranced geometry that fire-hardened workpieces require.
