The Mazak Integrex j-400 provides multitasking capabilities for processing large and complex components. It performs four-axis simultaneous machining with five-axis tool tip positioning, providing significant advantages in productivity, accuracy and flexibility. 

Unlike multitasking machines with drum-style turrets, the machine comes standard with a 20-tool magazine (36- and 72-tool magazines, optional) for increasing versatility in part production. The machine’s main turning spindle with C-axis control features a 12” chuck mounted on a 30-hp (22-kW), 3,300-rpm integral spindle that generates high levels of torque for even the most demanding jobs.
 
The machine also includes a 30-hp (22-kW), 12,000-rpm milling spindle that can be indexed in 5-degree (or optional 1-degree) increments from –30 degrees to 190 degrees, making it possible to perform OD machining, as well as turning, facing, grooving and threading with the same flash tool. It also makes it easy to perform incline machining and all other conventional machining processes. Additionally, the milling spindle can be radially indexed and clamped, enabling the same tool to be used for turning in both forward and reverse directions. 
 
Though the machine is compact with a footprint measuring 166.93” x 106.50” (4,240 mm × 2,705 mm), it offers a maximum machining diameter of 19.7” (500 mm) and maximum length of 24.76” (629 mm) with minimum tool interference for large workpieces. Its long axis strokes allow face milling, end milling and drilling to take place above and below the centerline without C-axis indexing. In addition, the machine’s true Y-axis design allows for a larger machine envelope and tool reach, reduced interference and excellent chip evacuation when compared with conventional machines. 
 
Constructed for high rigidity and featuring new high response servomotors, the multitasking delivers high repeatability of tool tip positioning. Additionally, the machine incorporates the company’s MX hybrid roller guide system that delivers levels of durability and reliability that result in long-term accuracy. The system increases vibration dampening to extend tool life, handles higher load capacities, accelerates and decelerates quicker to shorten cycle times, consumes less oil for “Greener” operations, and lasts longer with less required maintenance.
