Mazak SYNCREX Swiss-Style Machine Series

Mazak's SYNCREX machines accommodate a maximum of 35 tools in a standard configuration: 22 static and 13 live.

Mazak further expanded its machine tool technology portfolio with the debut of an all-new line of SYNCREX Swiss-style machines at the company’s DISCOVER 2021 event. With Mazak’s well-known performance and quality, the extremely precise SYNCREX models feature seven, eight and nine-axis configurations and are optimized for high-production of small parts.

These new Swiss-type machines use a collet plus single-motor ball spline drive for heightened accuracy and reduced material waste. A 10,000 rpm spindle and a variable vibrating system ensure the utmost in stable, repeatable performance.

“Now shops can count on Mazak quality to expand their productivity into new areas and applications,” said Dan Janka, president of Mazak Corporation. “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.”

Mazak’s 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) for fast and easy job setups along with Mazak Turning Chip Control (MTCC) functionality. For further ease of use, 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.

Like all Mazak machine tools, SYNCREX machines are backed by Mazak’s comprehensive 2-year warranty, industry-leading MPower complete customer care service and support program, and lifetime parts availability.

When you’re installing new cam bearings in an LS engine block, the first four (from back to front of the engine) are usually no problem. That’s because the block helps keep the cam bearing installation tool centered in the bearing bores. But when it comes to the front cam bearing, there is nothing to keep the installation tool centered in the bore. That means the chances of that bearing going in cockeyed are pretty high.
