Mazak to unveil new multi-tasking milling machine

Mazak, with a US manufacturing plant in Florence, Kentucky, will unveil its new VARIAXIS i-800T Multi-Tasking Machine at the IMTS 2016 (International Manufacturing Technology Show) in Illinois in September. The machine has been developed specifically to enhance milling operations and significantly boost productivity – especially for those manufacturers in the aerospace industry. With full 5-axis milling and turning capabilities along with integrated liquid nitrogen cryogenics technology, the machine not only delivers high processing efficiency for complex aerospace components, but also prevents the detrimental white layers typically generated when machining those parts from tough materials such as titanium, nickel, Invar and other exotics.

Along with the VARIAXIS i-800T, Mazak will showcase a host of new high-level developments in full digital factory integration, smart technology and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) connectivity as well as other new machining and automation systems.
