Turning centre has new turret design, increased spindle power, new control

December 29, 2016

Mazak’s Quick Turn-250MSY turning centre has several new features, including a new direct-drive turret, higher-torque main spindle, more powerful milling spindle, and the recently introduced Mazatrol SmoothG CNC.

The machine has two turning spindles, a rotary tool milling spindle, and Y-axis capabilities. Its new 12-position, direct-drive turret eliminates the use of belts, improving part surface finishes and reducing maintenance, the company states. It accepts both VDI and bolt-on tooling.

The turret’s direct-drive rotary tool spindle is now 10 HP, 6,000 RPM as standard. With the optional tooling package, 10,000 RPM is available.

The machine’s headstock features a 10-in. main chuck mounted on a 35-HP, 4,000-RPM integrated spindle motor. The main turning spindle also serves as a programmable C axis to position parts for square facing, slotting, and drilling.

The CNC offers EIA/ISO programming as well as conversational programming.
