Complete Automated Production Machining



"Mazak has introduced its MULTIPLEX W200Y Multitasking CNC Turning Center engineered to be the industry's fastest in terms of Done In One part processing capabilities," said a company spokesperson. "The machine loads/unloads parts quicker, provides shorter chip-to-chip times and sports the new MAZATROL SmoothG CNC with higher processing speeds for faster overall machine feedrates."

Designed for single-setup, mid to high volume production and continuous operations, the MULTIPLEX W200Y incorporates dual spindles, dual turrets with milling tools and Y-axis capability. The twin integral spindles on the MULTIPLEX W200Y each offer an 8" (203 mm) chuck size and a bore size of 2.4" (61 mm) in diameter, and each delivers 30 HP (22 kW) and maximum speeds of 5,000 RPM. Since both spindles offer identical performance, part-processing flexibility is greatly increased, and Mazak has incorporated full 360° circumferential clamping units into the integral spindles to further increase C-axis indexing accuracy.

The twin VDI-type turrets on the MULTIPLEX W200Y hold 12 tools each and rotary tools can be mounted in any position. Y-axis travels of +/- 2" (+/- 50 mm) along with the 5,000 RPM (10,000 optional) milling spindles of the turrets further increase the machine's single set-up part processing power.

With the MAZATROL SmoothG control, the MULTIPLEX W200Y's axes feed at speeds 14% to 50% faster than previously. The control makes it easy to generate programs for processing complex parts through off-centerline machining as well as angled drilling, milling and tapping.

The MAZATROL SmoothG incorporates a wide variety of advanced programming functions including High Gain Feed Forward Control, Fast Rotary Axis Speeds, Variable Acceleration Control and Intelligent Pocket Milling.

To shorten part loading/unloading time by about 20%, Mazak equipped the MULTIPLEX W200Y with a rack-and-pinion type gantry loader as opposed to a belt-driven one. The company also synchronized the motion of all the machine's doors and partitions so that they open precisely as the gantry approaches.

As an automation option, a two-pallet changing conveyor system allows users to continuously feed parts into it without having to stop the gantry or the machine itself. And via part program macro, users can select when and which parts will exit the conveyor system for inspection.

New turrets that feature clutch-less milling units help to shorten chip-to-chip time on the MULTIPLEX W200Y. The turret design is a two-motor type - one motor for indexing and the other for direct drive milling. Immediately after a turret indexes, the mill drive is instantaneously engaged to slash chip-to-chip time by over 50% in most instances.

"The identical twin spindles and identical twin turrets with Y-axis travel allow for unique part machining on the MULTIPLEX W200Y," said the spokesperson. Long shaft parts can be held using both spindles and machined with synchronized spindle rotation. Or the first operations of parts can be done with the No. 1 spindle/turret, and then parts transfer to the No. 2 spindle/turret for completing remaining operations. Or, two parts can be completed simultaneously and independently at both spindles/ turrets and using the machine's center partition.

Both left and right machine spindles can be equipped with a Mazak Tool Eye unit. When tool tips are brought into contact with these units, the Tool Eye data management system automatically registers tool position information to the machine's CNC. The system can also be used for tool measurement and tool breakage inspection.

The MULTIPLEX W200Y handles bar work diameters up to 2" (50 mm), shaft work lengths to 21" (533 mm) and chucked workpiece lengths to 7" (178 mm). It provides a standard machining diameter of 10.24" (260 mm) and a maximum swing of 12.6" (320 mm) in diameter.
