Three new Yamazaki Mazak
machining tools are being given their UK debuts at the company’s EMO Encore
Open House next month, including the much-anticipated VCE-600 and VCN-700 vertical machining centres.
The Open House
, which is being held at Mazak’s European Technology Centre in Worcester from 2 to 5 November, will highlight how customers can deliver more productive, profitable and environmentally-aware manufacturing operations. At total of 18 machines will be on display, including 12 previously showcased at EMO 2021
Taking pride of place will be Mazak’s new VCE-600 and VCN-700 machines, following their much-anticipated world debut at EMO
The VCN-700 is a new vertical machining centre that ‘delivers a step-change in performance’ through dynamic milling techniques, combining high-efficiency CAD/CAM toolpaths and the latest tools to enable constant load milling.
Mazak’s new VCE-600 has been similarly designed to maximise productivity following demand from sub-contractors and job shops for a high-specification entry-level machining centre with a large Y-axis stroke.
Also making its UK debut at EMO Encore
will be the latest generation of Mazak’s highly successful QTE Series, the QTE-300 MSY SG, which is equipped with SmoothEz, the company’s new easy-to-use Mazatrol CNC developed during the programming language’s 40th anniversary this year.
Automation will be a key theme of the event, with over half the machines on display featuring one of seven different integrated automation systems. This includes the latest multi-tasking machine tool in the company’s Integrex i-H series — the Integrex i-250H ST — which has been specifically designed to provide greater accessibility for site automation.
Mazak’s market-leading laser processing machine, the OPtiplex 3015 FIBER III, will also be featured at the event, alongside the Integrex i-200 ST AG, a model developed with gear cutting applications in mind.
Alan Mucklow, managing director UK, Eire and national distributors at Yamazaki Mazak UK Ltd, said: “EMO Encore
is traditionally our opportunity to bring back the best of Milan for a UK audience, and is especially welcome this year with Covid-19 still affecting travel in some capacity.
“Three outstanding machines will be making their UK debuts at the event, so I would encourage all UK machine users to put the 2 to 5 November in their calendar.”
