The VARIAXIS i-500 is a highly versatile full, simultaneous 5-axis Vertical Machining Center that performs multiple and complex curved surface machining on large, heavy workpieces in single setups with a table size of Ø19.69" x 15.75".
The machine falls within Mazak's Done-In-One® concept by incorporating all processes from raw material input through final machining in just one machine. As such, the machine reduces production lead times, improves machining accuracy and lowers operating expenses.
The machine also offers high levels of productivity via extremely fast, high-rigidity spindles that can handle a wide variety of applications, from heavy-duty cutting to high-speed cutting of aluminum and other nonferrous material.
Optional two-pallet changer provides continuous machine operation and integration within a PALLETECH Manufacturing System for automated manufacturing.
