Original Press Release:

Achieve Outstanding Horizontal Performance and Automation with the New Horizontal Center Nexus 6000 with Robot

The manufacturing industry's most outstanding value in heavy-duty, high-performance horizontal machining is now available in an untended manufacturing configuration with the new Horizontal Center Nexus 6000 from Mazak with a FANUC Robotics robot.

Designed as a general-purpose horizontal machining center for contract machine shops up to manufacturing industry applications, the standard specifications, performance productivity, and compact size of the HCN 6000 far surpass other machines on the market and provide exceptional customer value.

It features a high-speed, 50-taper, 50-HP, 10,000-rpm spindle with 388 ft-lbs torque as standard equipment. The 500-mm pallet is the foundation for a generous work size of 39.3 inches high and 35.4 inches diameter. And, at 111 inches wide, the HCN 6000 is space-efficient, with the lowest machine width in its class.

The HCN 6000 has many more outstanding, high-performance characteristics. Rapid-traverse rates in X, Y, and Z are 2362 ipm, and acceleration is 0.7G. A 43-tool magazine with automatic tool changer is standard, as is the precise and efficient 2-pallet changer, driven by a roller-gear cam with no hydraulics or sensors. The pallet will index 90 degrees in 1.9 seconds and change pallets in nine seconds.

The HCN 6000 is designed for ease of maintenance and environmental consideration. Standby power requirements are cut by 20%, and air consumption is reduced 36%. Sealed grease lubrication in all axes instead of way lube greatly reduces oil consumption and extends coolant life due to no tramp oils in the system. All machine units requiring daily maintenance are centrally located with excellent operator access.
