Integrex i-H culminates 40 years of innovation

Mazak celebrated 40 years of multi-tasking innovation at the recent EMO 2023 exhibition in Hanover with four Integrex machines on its stand.Mazak’s multi-tasking journey started in 1983 with the Slant Turn 40N ATC, the forerunner of the modern Integrex. The latest Integrex variation, the i-H series, culminates 40 years of turn-mill innovation and learnings that has produced the most compact, automation-friendly and productive Integrex ever manufactured.

At EMO 2023, the Integrex i-200 H ST partnered with a world debut for the Ez Loader 30 collaborative robot cell. Handling workpieces up to 18kg and 50 to 200mm in diameter, the Ez Loader 30 offers a flexible solution for today’s fast turnaround manufacturing.

The Integrex i-200 H ST comes equipped with 5000 rpm main and second spindles and a 12,000 rpm rotating B-axis second spindle for done-in-one capability. The growing requirement for automation is fundamental to the design of the i-H series. All models feature a flat front, while the tool magazine sits at the rear, providing greater accessibility to site automation at the front of the machine while maintaining accessibility for the operator. The rear-mounted 38-tool magazine reduces the machine’s overall footprint (optionally expandable to 74 or 112 tools). As well as providing access to the magazine area at the rear, tools can also be loaded and unloaded at the front of the machine for convenient operation.

Through innovative technology, the Ez Loader 30 solves the problem typically associated with automating high-mix, low-volume production of varied diameter components. Thanks to the automatic chuck-jaw changing function, the robot exchanges work-holding for both spindles to eliminate manual set-up and costly downtime between component runs.
