Roller Guide System dampens vibrations.

Press Release Summary:

Designed for integration with Mazak machines, MX Hybrid Roller Guide System features X-Design, which distributes load in 4 directions - radial clockwise and counterclockwise, reverse radial, and lateral. X-Design also minimizes reversal errors for optimal cornering. In addition to consuming minimal amounts of oil for Greener operation, system provides vibration dampening capability, which extends tool life.

Mazak Unveils Next Generation of Integrated Machine Guide Technology

Florence, Kentucky, - Mazak Corporation has unveiled its MX Hybrid Roller Guide System, which has been uniquely developed by Mazak for integration with its machines. Mazak will publicly debut this new technology on all its machines exhibited at IMTS 2010 Booth #S-8300.

As Mazak's Next Generation of Integrated Machine Guide Technology, the MX Hybrid Roller Guide System delivers levels of durability and reliability that result in long-term accuracy. By year end of 2010, all Mazak machine tools will ride on MX Hybrid Roller Guide technology.

The MX Hybrid Roller Guide System incorporates a special "X-Design" that efficiently distributes load in four directions - radial (clockwise and counterclockwise), reverse radial and lateral. For the best combination of consistent performance, accuracy and rigidity, the X-Design reduces reversal errors for unmatched cornering and provides more surface contact than balls, yet with less friction than slides.

Durability of the MX Hybrid Roller Guide System comes from the fact that it offers an unparalleled level of vibration dampening capability, resulting in extended tool life. The system also handles heavy load capacities because there is less elastic deformation with rollers, consumes minimal amounts of oil for "Greener" operation and allows better coolant life. It also extends machine life considerably and is practically maintenance free.
