Mazak to Spotlight Accurate, Affordable Milling and Turning Solutions at TECMA

FLORENCE, Ky. – At TECMA 2015, taking place March 3 - 6 in Mexico City, Mazak will spotlight accurate, affordable machine tools in Stand 430 that will forever change how machine shops process small and medium-sized workpieces for a variety of industries.

During the show, Mazak will run part cutting demonstrations on the VERTICAL CENTER UNIVERSAL 400A 5X, VERTICAL CENTER NEXUS 510 5X and QUICK TURN SMART 100. These machines feature proven technologies that bring precision, productivity and value to small-batch part production. Mazak applications experts will also be available to discuss ways in which attendees can optimize their operations using these machines.

The simple but innovative VERTICAL CENTER UNIVERSAL (VCU) 400A 5X vertical machining center features a 5-axis trunnion-style rotary/tilt table with durable, highspeed roller gear cam technology so that shops can cost-effectively produce complex parts up to 400 mm in diameter and 305 mm high. And because every shop has unique machining requirements, the VCU 400A 5X comes with a CAT-40 taper spindle in a variety of maximum speeds and tool storage capacities.

Also an incredible value, the VERTICAL CENTER NEXUS (VCN) 510 5X vertical machining center takes milling performance to an even higher level. It features an advanced rotary/tilt trunnion table with high-speed roller gear cam technology that offers full simultaneous 5-axis machining capabilities. The machine’s high-rigidity spindle offers an effective and productive balance of speed and torque for fulfilling virtually any workpiece material machining requirement.

Designed for reliable, cost-efficient part production, the QUICK TURN SMART (QTS) 100 turning center is perfect for shops looking to replace their manual lathes with more productive CNC solutions. The QTS 100 delivers fast axis feed rates and features an extremely user-friendly SMART CNC so that even the most novice operator can easily develop machining programs and achieve fast job set up.
