Mazak Corporation (www.mazakusa.com) says its new Integrex 200-IV ST performs turning, milling, drilling, boring, tapping and other operations on multiple axes in the same setup, and that it is designed to perform many operations from barfed turning to full, 5-axis machining.
The machine is equipped with dual opposed 5,000-rpm spindles for turning and C-axis control and a 25-hp, 12,000-rpm milling spindle. The Integrex 200IV-ST can machine parts to completion by exchanging them between spindles for front-andback processing. Users also can machine on each spindle simultaneously and turn with the upper and lower turning tools concurrently. The ST model can accommodate a 40tool upper turret and a 9-tool secondary lower turret for fixed tooling. This permits simultaneous machining on a single part or on two chucked parts.
The machine's new Mazatrol Matrix CNC has increased internal computing speed to support 16 million pulse encoders on each linear axis for sub-micron resolution and new servo control technology that minimizes vibration. The controller is powered by a new 64-bit twin-engine CPU that produces feedrates for machining complex surfaces two times faster than the previous controller. A special Voice Advisor verbally informs operators of machine alarms and switch settings in manual operation. Enhanced visual 3D simulations aid the operator in identifying and correcting any interference conditions and running part program simulations while the machine is operating.
