Innovative Mazak delivers more productivity for Alford Hydraulics

Dubbo based manufacturer of high quality hydraulic cylinders, Alford Hydraulics & Engineering have just taken delivery of their new Mazak Multiplex W-200Y, an innovative machine designed for higher productivity.

Mazak Multiplex W 200Y for Alford Hydraulics

The Mazak Multiplex W-200Y Multi-Tasking CNC turning center is the second new Mazak for Alford Hydraulics in less than 6 months.

The Multiplex W-200Y is designed for single-setup, mid to high volume production and continuous operations, incorporating dual spindles and dual turrets with milling tools and Y-axis capability.

Since both spindles offer identical performance, part-processing flexibility is greatly increased, and full 360-degree circumferential clamping units are incorporated into the integral spindles to further increase C-axis indexing accuracy.

The machine features continuous/simultaneous machining by both spindles thanks to automatic workpiece transfer from one spindle to the other.

The Mazak Multiplex W-200Y is the industry’s fastest in terms of DONE IN ONE part processing capabilities. To shorten part loading/unloading time by about 20 percent and to shorten chip-to-chip times, the Multiplex W-200Y is equipped with a rack-and-pinion type gantry loader as opposed to a belt-driven one.

The machine is equipped with a MAZATROL SmoothG CNC system, designed for unsurpassed ease of operation.
