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” is promoting the QT-PRIMOS series, a range of compact, high performance turning centres, and its vertical version, the VC-PRIMOS 400 SG, a compact vertical machining centre.
Aimed at entry-level machine users, all machines in the PRIMOS range can be characterised by exceptionally small footprints, circa 20 per cent less than equivalent machines in their class.
The QT-PRIMOS 50 SG is a compact, high-performance CNC turning centre, designed for mass production environments, but with minimum floorspace requirements. The rigid integral spindle motor and INTELLIGENT THERMAL SHIELD ensure outstanding accuracy and high-speed cutting with the main spindle capable of 5,000rpm. The machine is also equipped with a lightweight machine front door, front window, large capacity oil pan, smooth chip disposal and a 5” chuck.
In this series, the QT-PRIMOS 150 SG, is a similar compact machine equipped with a servo motor driven drum turret that features high-speed, non-lift turret indexing and a main spindle capable of 4,000rpm.
The new campaign also features the VC-PRIMOS 400 SG, a compact, high speed vertical machining centre, equipped with a 12000rpm spindle and 30 taper interface, that delivers high-productivity performance with lower tooling investment costs.
The machine is capable of high speed 60m/min rapid traverse rates and delivering fast tool change times, which can increase productivity and efficiency by reducing non-cutting time. In addition, the highly compact machine has maintenance-free sides and rear chip conveyor discharge.
The VC-PRIMOS 400 SG can also be fully integrated with machines from the QT-PRIMOS series to form an effective production line that performs both turning and milling.
All machines in the PRIMOS range are built to Mazak global manufacturing standards, which means that, despite the entry-level price point, there is no compromise on Mazak build quality.
