The Integrex i-100HS multitasking machine combines the abilities of a full-function machining center and a high-powered turning center to produce small and medium-sized workpieces in single setups.
Mazak says its Integrex i-100HS multitasking machine offers a small footprint and simultaneous 5-axis capabilities along with maximum versatility, high precision and throughput for complex part applications. The machine is said to combine the abilities of a full-function machining center and a high-powered turning center to produce small and medium-sized workpieces in single setups.
The machine employs a main and second spindle headstock with a 203mm chuck and 61mm diameter bore mounted on a 11kW, 6 000rpm integrated spindle motor for handling a range of applications, from heavy-duty cutting at low speed to high-speed cutting of nonferrous materials. It also offers an optional 74-tool automatic tool-change magazine.
A vertically mounted milling spindle provides 24kW, 12 000rpm and a rotating B-axis range of -30 degrees to +240-degrees. A roller cam drive for the B axis is said to ensure higher accuracy and rigidity, while providing zero backlash. A 36-tool (72-tool optional) magazine enables for fast tool changes and provides ample tooling for continuous part processing.
The machine also provides a Y-axis travel of 210mm and vertical X-axis travel of 450mm. The machine accommodates parts up to 500mm in diameter with a maximum machining length of 854mm.
It also uses the Mazatrol SmoothAi, which is said to offer productivity advantages to the most demanding machining operations. The company says the Integrex i-100HS ensures the shortest possible machining cycle times, especially in fine-increment programmes for simultaneous 5-axis operations and free-form, die-mould machining. The control incorporates a variety of advanced programming functions said to make it easy to use and ensure high-speed, high-accuracy machining performance.
