New 5-axis machining center provides maximum versatility, single setups, and increased capacity.
Brookfield, WI (March 25, 2020) – Trace-A-Matic Corp. announced today the installation of a new Mazak Integrex i-400 5-axis machining center in Plant 1 at their Brookfield, WI location. This addition brings the Integrex i-400 count to three for the plant. The turn-mill bed center features a 12.0" chuck, y-axis 10.2" max swing over carriage maximum, 25.90" max swing over ways maximum, with a 60" center to center maximum. The new machine will primarily serve the aerospace and military industries, extending the machining capacity of the 45,000 square foot facility.
"Multi-axis machining allows us to more efficiently machine complex parts with extreme accuracy," Ed Graunke, President of Trace-A-Matic, said in a statement. "The ability to combine multiple setups into a single operation reduces part handling, numerous clamping phases, and non-cut time. We're also able to use shorter cutting tools with less vibration and deflection, which results in more precise machining."
