FLORENCE, Ky., December 4, 2020 – Mazak Corporation has announced the introduction of a new series of Kentucky-designed and built CNC turning machines, the QT-Ez Series. Designed to give job shops and other manufacturers affordable access to Mazak technology and engineering expertise, the QT-Ez Series offers a wide range of turning centers, including those with Multi-Tasking and DONE IN ONE® functionality. With the addition of the new MAZATROL SmoothEz control and automation systems such as Mazak’s new Cobot Cell (CC) Series, these high-value, versatile solutions ensure ease of operation along with high productivity.
Models within the new turning machine series include the QT-Ez 8, QT-Ez 10 and QTEz 12 each offered in 2-axis, M, MY and MSY versions. M versions include milling capability, MY machines feature milling and Y-axis off-centerline capability and MSY machines are a combination of both milling and Y axis capability paired with second turning spindles for complete DONE IN ONE® part processing. For further increased productivity and unmanned operations, the machines seamlessly integrate with bar feeders and robots.
Each QT-Ez model number indicates the standard chuck size, but Mazak also offers a smaller size optional chuck for each machine to provide greater maximum rpm capability. These include a 6” chuck option for the QT-Ez 8, an 8” for the QT-Ez 10 and 10” for the QT-Ez 12. Each model is available in a 20” bed length and an optional 40” bed length for the QT-Ez 12 model. Available machine turrets include 2-axis drum style, with a bolt-on or BMT55 turret for rotary tool applications, and tailstocks are offered with either manual positioning with hydraulic quill or servo positioning capability.
