Mazak Horizontal Machining Centers

The new generation Mazak Horizontal Machining Centers combine advanced technology, productivity, and value. A variety of pallet sizes - from 400 mm x 400 mm (15.74” x 15.74”) to 800 mm x 800 mm (31.50” x 31.50”) - are available to meet your production requirements.

What is Horizontal Machining?

Horizontal Machining, also known as milling, relies on rotary cutters to remove metal from a workpiece. Horizontal machining occurs on a horizontal machining center (HMC), which employs a spindle that is parallel to the ground floor. With a horizontally oriented spindle, tools stick out of the side of the tool holder and cut across the side of a workpiece, encouraging chips to fall away from the table. Horizontal machining centers also allow for two-pallet changer integration to facilitate unattended operation and reduce part cycle times.
