Mazak Corp. has enhanced its VTC-200C vertical machining center with the addition of the Mazatrol SmoothG CNC. The control complements the VTC-200C’s full traveling-column design, automatic tool changer and 40-taper spindle.

Job shops and major manufacturers will benefit from the CNC and its innovative programming, performance and monitoring functions, as well as the ability to use both EIA/ISO and conversational programming to bring optimum speed and accuracy to complex part production, the company says. Advanced hardware—including a pivoting CNC panel and intuitive, 19" multi-touch LCD control screen—allows for complete ease of use, while a CFast memory card stores up to 32 GB of program data.

The VTC-200C machine platform delivers a standard 15,000 rpm, 30-hp spindle capable of handling a variety of metalcutting applications. Additionally, the machine rapid traverses in all axes at a rate of 1,574 ipm, while its standard integration of Intelligent Thermal Shield (ITS) software helps maintain machine accuracy in a range of factory environments.

The machine's fixed 78.74" by 20" table provides process flexibility for a range of applications, and its optional center partition can divide the work envelope into two separate work areas to allow the machine to be in cycle in one area while operators load, unload or set up a part in the other. The machine’s axis travels measure 65.35" in X, 20" in Y and 20" in Z.
