FLORENCE, Ky., May 7, 2021 – At this year’s Precision Machining Technology Show (PMTS) August 10-12 in Cleveland, Mazak will highlight some of its latest high-output, cost-effective and space-saving machine tool technology in Booth #3083. In particular, the company will spotlight its Kentucky-built Ez Series of machines and CNC – all touted as game changers for medium to high-volume small-part applications.
At the show, Mazak technology in action will include the QT-Ez 12MSY Horizontal Turning Machine, the VC-Ez 20 Vertical Machining Center, the HQR-200MSY Multi-Tasking Machine and the company’s new MAZATROL SmoothEz CNC. Ez Series machines are designed to give job shops and other manufacturers affordable access to Mazak technology and engineering expertise.
For maximum efficiency, reliability and value in precision part production, the QT-Ez 12MSY is a turning center with milling and Y-axis off-centerline capabilities paired with a second turning spindle for complete DONE IN ONE® part processing. Productivity and unmanned operations are further enhanced when shops seamlessly integrate the machine with a range of automation solutions, from a bar feeder and parts catcher to full cooperative robot systems.
The QT-Ez 12MSY features a 20″ bed length. With a larger A2-8 spindle nose, the machine delivers 3,300 rpm, 30 hp and 285 ft-lbs of torque and features a 3″ bar capacity. Its milling spindle puts out 6,000 rpm with 10 hp and 32.5 ft-lbs of torque. Likewise, the second turning spindle also delivers 6,000 rpm, with a 6″ chuck offered with an optional through-hole package for shaft transfer applications.
