Multi-Pallet Automation Provides Machining Efficiency and Cost Savings
Trace-A-Matic installs a new Mazak HCN-5000 horizontal machining center with a ten pallet pool for multi-setups and automation at their Brookfield, WI location. The center is optimized to machine medium to high-volume nonferrous metal parts, featuring a 12,000 rpm high-speed spindle with vibration-free acceleration/deceleration for machining stability and accuracy. The ten pallet PALLETECH system minimizes non-cut time and improves overall process efficiency. The working envelope of the HCN-5000 is X-axis 28.74”, Y-axis 28.74”, and Z-axis 31.50”.
“The HCN-5000 increases our high-speed spindle capacity and also provides efficiency with a multi-pallet pool reducing setup on repeat jobs,” Thorsten Wienss, CEO at Trace-A-Matic, said in a statement. “The new center will primarily serve the machining needs of our military and aerospace customers.”
