Mazak HCN-4000 NEO machining demonstration

The Mazak HCN-4000 NEO features a spacious work envelope and pallet size as well as a fast rapid traverse speed and rigid, reliable spindles.

Application: EV transmission cover   |   Material: JIS A5052   |   Size: 400 x 240 x 300 mm


The next-generation Mazak HCN-4000 NEO horizontal machining center achieves maximum productivity with virtually any type of material.

The Mazak HCN-4000 NEO offers five spindle choices from standard and high torque to high speed and high output, and allows users to match spindle performance to specific machining requirements with the proper speeds and power. The machine is automation ready for use with an optional 5-pallet changer, MPP and external robot system.

Updated design features enhance every aspect of machine performance, from the three-point leveling bed for easy installation to linear roller guides for high accuracy and heavy-duty machining. The integral spindle/motor design minimizes vibration for exceptional surface finishes and optimal tool life, even at high machining speeds. Temperature-controlled cooling oil circulates around the spindle bearings and headstock to minimize any thermal change to the spindle. The machine performs continuous machining from a cold start for stable precision.

With unsurpassed performance, precision, reliability and production value for high-volume operations, the Mazak HCN-4000 NEO uses a backlash-free rotary gear cam to ensure high accuracy as well as long service life. The table and pallet are clamped on four taper cones for stable heavy-duty operation. For efficient high-speed operation, direct transmission of driving power to the rotary table axis eliminates power transmission components such as the worm shaft and the worm gear. Sustainability features reduce power consumption, extend coolant service life, limit coolant changes and simplify maintenance.
