Yamazaki Mazak has launched a multi-tasking machine tool that has been specifically designed and built for the safe, efficient and accurate machining of large workpieces.

The new Integrex e-670H, part of the Integrex e-H II series of machines, combines both machining centre and turning centre, with the main turning spindle and the milling spindle each delivering a 50hp machining capability.

The machine has a part-machining capacity of 1,070mm in diameter by up to 6,000mm in length between centres.

In addition to the large working envelope, the e-670H can be equipped with NC programmable steady rest and a tailstock that provide an enhanced large-parts capacity.

Applications requiring long bores to be machined can be accommodated with 3bar up to 1.4m in length, capable of being stored in the integrated automatic tool changer.

The new Integrex is also equipped with a U-axis and the ability to hold long milling tools for special-purpose applications.

A spindle through-bore of 260mm, in conjunction with the capability to perform gear cutting, deep-hole drilling, milling and turning, makes the machine ideal for applications found in the aerospace, oil and gas and power generation industries.

The enhanced axis performance achieved through the integration of linear roller guideways means that the e-670H is also effective for smaller, intricate applications.

The e-670H also features a range of design and ergonomic factors.

The machine guarding incorporates the latest Mazak design, providing enhanced visibility and accessibility to the working area, delivering an excellent machine and user interface and an efficient part-loading and unloading capability, according to the company.

It is also equipped with a number of environmental features that reduce energy consumption and therefore the through-life cost of operation, including LED lighting, a personnel sensor, an intelligent chip conveyor, NC display-off and a power consumption meter.

The Integrex e-670H is equipped with the latest Mazatrol Matrix CNC, enabling the efficient programming of complex components.

Yamazaki Mazak Ltd

Yamazaki Mazak is the world’s largest manufacturer of computer controlled (CNC) metal-cutting machines. With over 260 different models, the Mazak product range includes CNC lathes, machining centres, multi-tasking machines and flexible manufacturing systems as well as laser processing machines.

Machine tools are called “Mother Machine” because they relate to the manufacturing of almost every product around us and are very important in supporting the base of “world manufacturing.” Our mission as a machine tool maker is to enrich people’s lives and contribute to society by developing and providing high performance machine tools that can produce high accuracy work in a short time.

We were among the first to start foreign production as a Japanese machine tool maker. Following the establishment of Mazak Corporation in the USA, we expanded our production base worldwide to include the UK, Singapore and China, as well as further expanding our Japanese manufacturing operations. We are the only machine tool maker to have established a global production system. With these local plants, we have been able to provide high quality service and have built strong relationships based on mutual trust with customers from all over the world.

True to the Yamazaki principle of supporting the customer locally, Mazak’s European Manufacturing plant, in Worcester UK, opened in June 1987 and was immediately recognised as the most advanced machine tool manufacturing plant in Europe. The factory has expanded three times since then and now offers over 29,000m2

This is a complete machine tool manufacturing plant. Mazak machines the components that go to make its spindles, turrets, tool magazines and Mazak even manufactures its own sheet metal covers. As with all Mazak manufacturing plants, the most rigorous practices and Kaizen programmes ensure continuous improvement.

Serving all of Europe’s markets, more than 80% of the machine tools built in Worcester are exported from the UK into Europe. More than 17,000 Mazak machines have been manufactured here so far and this number continues to grow every day.

Mazak European Manufacturing Plant is recognised for its factory automation, technology and overall management practices. Selected as one of the “Top Ten Companies in the World” by the Swedish Royal Academy of Science and Technology underscores this worldwide reputation.

As with all Mazak factories, this facility comprises a variety of flexible manufacturing systems, consisting of machining centres, multi-tasking CNC lathes, and a sheet metal FMS – all designed for unmanned operation.

The plant benefits from highly skilled employees who are committed to continuous improvement through the 25 “Kaizen” teams in operation.
