Small but powerful machine tools

Yamazaki Mazak is ramping up the promotion of its Primos range of machines for UK machine users.

The new campaign, which has the strapline “You don’t have to be big to be powerful”, promotes the QT-Primos series, a range of compact turning centres, and the VC-Primos 400 SG, a compact vertical machining centre. Aimed at entry-level users, all machines in the Primos range can be characterised by small footprints, circa 20% less than equivalent machines in their class, says Mazak.
The QT-Primos 50 SG CNC turning centre is designed for mass production environments, but with minimum floor-space requirements, while the QT-Primos 150 SG is a similar compact machine equipped with a servomotor-driven drum turret that features high-speed, non-lift turret indexing. The new campaign also includes the VC-Primos 400 SG, a compact vertical machining centre equipped with a 12,000 rpm spindle and 30-taper interface.
