QMN’s manufacturing gets DONE IN ONE

QMN Manufacturing has taken delivery of a Mazak Multiplex W-300Y with the optional Mazak GL200 gantry loader system.

QMNs Mazak Multiplex W 300Y

The Mazak Multiplex W-300Y is considered to be the industry’s most productive in terms of DONE IN ONE part processing capabilities.

Designed for single-setup, mid to high volume production and  continuous operations, the Mazak Multiplex W-300Y incorporates dual spindles and dual turrets with milling tools along with Y-axis capability. Since both spindles offer identical performance, part-processing flexibility is greatly increased, and full 360-degree clamping units are incorporated into the integral spindles to further increase C-axis indexing accuracy.

Both of the Mazak’s main and second spindles accommodate 10" chucks and deliver 4,000 rpm and 26 kw of machining speed and power. With a combined 24-tool capacity, the left and right turrets feature 4,000-rpm rotary tool spindles.

For expanded part size versatility, the maximum swing and maximum machining diameter of the Mazak Multiplex W-300Y both measure 430mm, while maximum bar capacity is 80mm. A center partition also allows the Mazak Multiplex W-300Y to be utilized as two separate machining envelopes should the application require it.

The factory-supplied Mazak GL200 gantry loader provides fast workpiece load/unload times thanks to the new rack-and-pinion gantry design that allows for simultaneous motion of doors, chuck confirmations and linear rail motion to reduce overall tack times. In addition, the new 2-pallet gantry table design allows for uninterrupted production throughout the day.

The Mazatrol SmoothG CNC makes it easy to generate CNC programs for processing complex parts on the Mazak Multiplex W-300Y.

The control incorporates a wide variety of advanced CNC programming functions that allow it to offer complete ease of use and ensure high-speed, high-accuracy CNC machining performance.
