Discover More with Mazak

The Discover More with Mazak Midwest technology event was held last week in Mazak’s Technology Center in Shaumburg, Illinois. The event showcased advanced cutting demonstrations on more than 20 different Mazak machines, ranging from small highspeed vertical milling centers like the Vertical Center NEXUS Compact, to a range of different Integrex machines to large horizontals like the NEXUS 8800-II.

Mastercam was there with the help of local Mastercam reseller, Shopware Inc. based in Elgin, IL. Mastercam was used to program parts for two machines at this event and both showcased Mastercam’s Dynamic technology. Machined out of 6061 aluminum on the Vertical Center NEXUS Compact highspeed mill was a pair of pliers. Between the speed of the machine and Mastercam’s Dynamic technology, the rough operation took less than one minute!

The second machine was a NEXUS 700D-II VMC with a 4-axis rotary; a much larger and much more heavy duty machining center. Along with Dynamic technology used to mill the flats you see below, this part also showcased Mastercam’s 4-axis machining technology.

Thanks to Mazak for letting Mastercam participate at this event and to Shopware, Inc. for helping to support it!
