Like other INTEGREX i-H Series machines, the INTEGREX i-200H ST features a new design that increases flexibility and enhances machine performance for significantly easier automation integration, allowing shops to boost the output of their existing workforces with the utmost in cost efficiency.
Mazak designed its new INTEGREX i-H Series machines with the flexibility necessary to process a practically endless variety of part types without additional capital expenses. The new machines allow shops to add a multitude of automation options – some of which are retrofittable in the field – as production levels dictate long after the initial purchase of the machine, ensuring easy access to continuous improvement.
The machines within the i-H Series sport new, ergonomic enclosures with compact footprints that require less floor space.
