Mazak Brings SYNCREX Swiss-Style Machines to PMTS 2023

FLORENCE, Ky., April 5, 2023 – During the Precision Machining Technology Show (PMTS) 2023, Mazak will showcase several models from its new SYNCREX Series of Swiss-style machines in booth 3053. Among them will be the SYNCREX 38/9 that accommodates bar stock up to 1.5” (38mm), and incorporates a removable guide bushing adapter that allows operators to preset guide bushings outside of the machine.  The SYNCREX 38/9 is also convertible and can be quickly changed over to run in chucker mode for added part processing flexibility.

Mazak’s SYNCREX Swiss-style Series encompasses models featuring seven, eight and nine-axis configurations and are optimized for precision high-production of small parts. SYNCREX “9X” models deliver added part processing flexibility as they are capable of full 5-axis contouring while using the B-axis tool post.

Like all models in the series, the SYNCREX 38/9 is a sliding headstock machine constructed on the Mazak High Damping Composite Casting (HDCC). This unique high rigidity base provides greater vibration damping characteristics, less thermal growth and greater part surface capabilities when compared to a cast iron base machine.

Mazak’s SYNCREX machines accommodate a maximum of 36 tools in a standard configuration: 20 static and 16 live. Mazak offers a full catalog of modular tool holders allowing their customers the tooling flexibility to meet their part requirements.
