Yamazaki Mazak will be exhibiting its new INTEGREX i-100S multi-tasking machine, complete with BARTAC S bar feed system, at Autosport Engineering 2015, part of the Autosport International show.
Mazak, who regularly attend that event, has a long history of supplying CNC machine tools to the motorsport sector, most notably its relationship with McLaren Mercedes as the Formula One team’s Official Supplier of CNC machine tools. There are currently 25 Mazak machines in operation at the McLaren Technology Centre in Surrey.The latest variant of Mazak’s flagship INTEGREX range, which will be cutting live on the stand throughout the show, features a large machining area with compact ergonomic design and highly accurate performance. It is capable of machining both round and square workpieces from raw material with just one set up, one machine and one operator. It is also equipped with a new BARTAC S bar feed system, which offers integrated work unloading and conveyor handling of completed workpieces for lights-out and unmanned running.
Richard Smith, Managing Director UK & Ireland Sales Division, for Mazak commented: “The Autosport Engineering exhibition is always a great way to kick off the machining year. Our INTEGREX i-100S is an exceptional machine perfectly suited for use across a wide range of applications within the autosport and automotive sectors, from small batch and prototype work through to volume production. What’s more, the addition of the BARTAC S bar feed system enables continuous batch runs of workpieces which can increase productivity; an asset which cannot be underestimated in an industry where incredibly fast turn-around times are the norm.”
He continued: “The i-series has proved to be highly successful in the UK market and across Europe since its launch and we are confident that visitors to Autosport Engineering 2015 will appreciate its capabilities during the live cutting demonstrations.”
