Mazak's new SYNCREX Swiss-style machinesClick image to enlarge

Mazak has expanded its machine tool technology portfolio with the debut of an all-new line of SYNCREX Swiss-style machines.

The machines were unveiled at Mazak’s DISCOVER 2021 event, which is taking place this week at Mazak’s North American headquarters campus in Florence, KY.

The new models offer seven-, eight- and nine-axis configurations and are optimized for high production of small parts.

The new Swiss-type machines use a collet plus single-motor ball spline drive for improved accuracy and reduced waste, plus a 10,000 rpm spindle and a variable vibrating system.

"Now shops can count on Mazak quality to expand their productivity into new areas and applications," said Dan Janka, president of Mazak Corp. "We are excited to showcase this new technology at DISCOVER 2021 and give our customers new reasons to choose Mazak. We are also extremely proud to produce the new series in Kentucky and are in the process of adding a new building to our Florence campus specifically for that production."

The SYNCREX machines accommodate a maximum of 35 tools in a standard configuration: 22 static and 13 live. An exclusively designed automated tool setter checks, measures and sets up tools to optimize the process, allowing shops to reduce setup times from days to hours and regain valuable cut time.

A unique high-rigidity base casting creates greater stability, reduced vibration and thermal distortion for increased tool life, enhanced part quality and better surface finishes. A twin-screen system with built-in AutoDesk software helps further speed part setups and production.

Mazak SYNCREX machines sport the new MAZATROL SmoothSt CNC that features Mazak’s Swiss Setup Assist (MSSA) to simplify job setups, along with Mazak Turning Chip Control (MTCC) functionality. The control’s soft key PLC functions include those for tool touch off, part cut off, retract point and start position. MAZATROL SmoothSt also allows for synchronous control, rigid tapping with all spindles and cross and front simultaneous machining.
