The Florence, Ky., plant has been expanded and extensively updated over the past decade, and already is a primary example of Mazak’s iSMART Factory concept.
HCN 6800 horizontal machines
The HCN-6800 horizontal machining center features 10,000-rpm CAT 50 spindle that delivers 50 hp of metal removal power in a variety of materials, from steels to nonferrous metals. The machine travels are 41.34 x 35.43 x 38.58 in. (X-Y-Z), with rapid traverse at 2,362 ipm per axis at 0.8G acceleration.
The standard index table on the HCN-6800 rotates 90 degrees in 1.9 seconds. Optional NC positioning and NC rotary table are available to further increase positioning accuracy to 0.001 and 0.0001, degrees respectively.
HCN 8800 horizontal machines
The HCN-8800 horizontal machining center has 10,000-rpm CAT 50, with machine travels of 55.12 x 47.24 x 52.1 in. (X-Y-Z), and rapid traverse at 2,362 ipm per axis.
INTEGREX e-1250V multi-tasking machines
Mazak’s Integrex e-1250V/8 AG incorporates the Auto Gear package, thus combining gear processing with full 5-axis machining, and heavy-duty turning operations, plus pallet-changing capabilities for processing large, highly complex parts in titanium, aluminum, and steel. The two-pallet changer adds the possibility of unattended operations and off-cycle part set-up.
The Mazatec Smart Manufacturing System (SMS) offers manufacturers a range of configurations and options to achieve fully automated processes in any facility. Integrated with a plant’s manufacturing execution system (MES), the system uses Smooth PMC to simplify production management. A high-speed stocker crane for maximum stocker height of 39.4 ft, is integrated with the SMS.
MAZATROL SmoothG control technology
Mazak’s Smooth Technology platform is a production process control concept for manufacturing cells performing complex sequences and exchanging data on product design, machine performance, and system analytics, consistent with the emerging vision for the Industrial Internet of Things.
