The All Axes Live event highlighted the newest technology from Mazak and enabled the more than 400 attendees to access 16 video on-demand demos for different featured machine tools.
The AF160 can process gears with an outside diameter of up to 60 mm and a length of 250 mm. The machining length is between 110 and 180 mm.
The machines can be combined into processing cells that enable efficient drilling, reaming and rifling as many as 20,000 small-caliber firearm barrels a month.
Switching back and forth from subtractive machining to additive manufacturing is as simple as making a tool change.
System includes a RoboDrill D21SiBadv Vertical Machining Center Series, which has several different pre-engineered end-of-arm and infeed/outfeed options for a range of part and capacity requirements for medium-volume applications.
Machine accommodates multiple infeed and outfeed options for a range of part and capacity requirements.
An optional HEPA filter kit uses recyclable E11 filter media for even greater results.
VMC combines strength with speed for optimum productivity.
Machine is well-suited for die/mold, aerospace and other high-speed applications.
The part load/unload mechanism is equipped with twin arms for efficient part handling and zero idle time.
Easy-to-use CNC machine pairs with intuitive software to enable product designers, educators and engineers to make, prototype and build right out of the box.
New feed-rate-optimization technology can enable CAM programmers to reduce cycle times and increase tool life for milling and turning operations.
These VMCs absorb vibration to allow consistent production of highly precise parts.
Many factors, such as price, part size and material come into play when deciding whether 3D printing or CNC milling is the best method for making a prototype.
Chrion's new Precision Factory was designed for production and assembly of its new 16 and 25 series of machine tools.
The Mazak GR100 integrates into any of the Quick Turn 200/250 series machine models.
This Vermont shop focuses solely on machining plastics — some filled with abrasive glass — for a range of industries. That makes it stand apart from others, but means it also faces challenges that metal machining shops often don’t encounter.
