FLORENCE, Ky., September 20, 2022 – Mazak highlighted the versatile benefits of its next-generation HCN-5000 NEO Horizontal Machining Center at IMTS 2022 in Booth 338300. The machine combines advanced technology and outstanding value with high-performance productivity to produce large, heavy parts from virtually any type of material. Its highly rigid construction and compensation ensure extended periods of precise machining.
Redesigned for greater efficiency, productivity and sustainable performance, the HCN-5000 NEO features a standard NC rotary table for reduced non-cut time, while an optional direct-drive motor rotary table with scale increases high-speed operation efficiency. A wide variety of additional options includes high-rigidity spindles for heavy-duty machining, multiple tool magazine sizes for greater capacity and automation systems to increase convenience. The machine helps shops boost output and precision while its enhanced energy efficiency improves environmental performance and a three-point leveling bed simplifies machine installation.
The HCN-5000 NEO excels with parts up to 31.5″ x 39.37″ (800 mm x 1000 mm) thanks to its spacious work envelope and 19.69″ (500 mm) standard pallet size, as well as a fast rapid traverse speed and rigid, reliable spindles. Low ground-to-pallet-surface setup provides enhanced accessibility for easy setup, with 90° setup station indexing for easy workpiece loading and unloading.
A wide variety of high-speed and high-torque integral motor/spindle types ensures that shops can match spindle performance to specific materials, including everything from steels to nonferrous metals. The machine’s ample axis travels measure 28.74″ (730 mm) in both X and Y and 31.5″ (800 mm) in Z.
