The Mazak INTEGREX i-200ST Multi-Tasking machine efficiently processes mid-size complex components. It offers versatility and high accuracy in a compact design as well as features twin spindles, a lower turret and milling spindle for unbeatable Done-In-One productivity. As a Level 4 machine in Mazakʼs Five Levels of Multi-Tasking, the INTEGREX i-200ST turns, drills, taps and mills, while offering off-centerline and full simultaneous 5-axis contouring.
Mazak developed its Five Levels of Multi-Tasking as an effective way for manufacturers to determine the best multi-tasking technology for meeting their specific application and process needs. Within the Five Levels of Multi-Tasking, Level 1 machines typically offer a single turning spindle and drum-style turret with rotating tool capability for processing minimally complex workpieces. Level 2 machines add Y-axis functionality for off-center operations and Done-In-One machining together with either a twin spindle and milling turret or twin spindle/twin turret machine configuration. Level 3 Multi-Tasking machines feature independent milling spindle headstocks with B-axis indexing, as well as Y-axis travels and tool storage magazines. Level 4 machines emphasize automation and processing large or highly complex workpieces using full, simultaneous 5-axis machining. Level 5 is the addition of specialized machining tasks, such as gear cutting, honing and grinding, that transform Level 4 machines into Level 5 Ultra-Tasking machines that process even the most demanding and complex parts complete in single setups. Both turning spindles on the INTEGREX i-200ST provide equal high performance with spindle speeds of 5,000 rpm and C-axis turning control. And both have a bore capacity measuring 3” (76 mm) in diameter. For C-axis contouring versatility at either turning spindle, the INTEGREX i-200ST vertically mounted milling spindle provides 30 hp (22 kW), 12,000 rpm and a rotating Baxis range of -30° to +240°. Mazakʼs unique roller cam drive for the B-axis ensures higher accuracy and rigidity, while providing zero backlash. A 36-tool (72-tool optional) magazine allows for fast tool changes and provides ample tooling for continuous part processing. The lower turret on the INTEGREX i-200ST model comes standard for 9 turning tools. The lower turret working in combination with the machineʼs milling spindle that can be applied to either side of the machine headstock reduces machining cycle times.
Mazak incorporates its MX Hybrid Roller Guide System into the INTEGREX i-200ST for durability and reliability that result in long-term accuracy. The MX Hybrid Roller Guide System dampens vibration to extend tool life, handles higher load capacities, accelerates and decelerates quicker to shorten cycle times, consumes less oil for “Greener” operations, and lasts longer with less required maintenance. For a compact multi-tasking center, the INTEGREX i-200ST provides an ample Y-axis travel of 9.8” (249 mm) and vertical X-axis of 24.2” (615 mm), with 4.92” (125 mm) below centerline. The machine accommodates parts up to 25.9” (657.8 mm) in diameter. And because its tool magazine is located at the front, machine operators can do programming and tool setup with minimal required movement. Additionally, all machine lubrication points and gages are gathered into a single panel for ease of viewing and maintenance.
