The i-400S features a newly designed 1,500 mm machining bed, offering higher performance machining and greater workpiece capacity than any other multi-tasking machines in its size range, says the company. At the heart of the machine is a 30 kW 3,300 rpm main spindle, supported by a 26 kW 4,000 rpm second spindle, which combine to machine workpieces up to 658 mm in diameter and 1,519 mm in length.

Mazak’s Integrex i-400S is equipped with the company’s SmoothX CNC, which not only contributes to improved cycle times, but can reduce programming and set-up times, it is claimed.

Alan Mucklow, managing director UK and Ireland sales division at Yamazaki Mazak, says: “Our Integrex i-400S combines the capabilities of a high-powered turning centre and full-function machining centre to produce a range of complex parts, from fully prismatic to round or highly contoured components, in a single set-up. The i-400S can be used across small batch, prototype work, in addition to volume production.”

On Southern Manufacturing, Mucklow adds: “Subcontract manufacturing provides the supply chain backbone for so many sectors of UK industry. With an increasing number of subcontractors diversifying their sector mix in recent years, the need for machine tools that can adapt to a variety of different applications, materials and batch sizes has never been greater. The i-400S is tailor-made for this audience, and we are very much looking forward to showcasing it to the UK’s subcontract base at Southern Manufacturing.”

Regarding Autosport Engineering, he says: “Given the UK’s manufacturing pedigree in the motorsport industry, Autosport Engineering is always one of the highlights of the machining year. The Integrex i-400S is an exceptional machine, well suited to motorsport and automotive applications, and equally adept at small batch and prototype work, or in volume production roles.”
