About This Demo
Watch the latest generation of Mazak's HCN series of horizontal machining centers, the HCN-6800 NEO, partnered with a single-level PALLETECH system to automate machine-pallet delivery as Application Specialist Mike Kerscher and Application Engineer Ed Overman machine a connecting rod for a diesel engine. This upgraded machine features a fully redesigned enclosure, a big performance boost and a wide range of standard options. The 10,000 rpm spindle provides a 23% horsepower increase, and the optional high-torque 8,000 rpm spindle offers 50% more constant horsepower and 26% more constant torque: more than 1,000 ft lbs, a big assist in tackling tough materials such as titanium. Standard features include an NC rotary table to reach part features at virtually any angle, reducing cycle time by eliminating the need to lift the table, and increased maximum tool length within the work envelope. With a class-leading pallet-change time, a reduced overall footprint and Windows 10 on the CNC operating system, this next-generation machine offers enhanced performance without additional cost.
