Some History of Mazak Product Lines and Technology Through Today

Mazak is an international manufacturer of machining centers with a diverse product line including multi-tasking, 5-axis, turning, vertical and horizontal machining centers as well as an exclusive parts-moving cell system called Palletech, and automation software. Mazak offers multiple software solutions and boasts the ability to connect and secure their CNC’s of all ages. You can buy a used Mazak mill and still take advantage of newer software solutions since many of their software solutions are backward compatible with older models.

Selecting A Used Mazak CNC Mill

Mazak is leading manufacturer of CNC mills worldwide, and as such, they have hundreds of models under a wide range of series names that have changed throughout the years.

Mills may be classified as follows:

  • Multi-tasking
  • 5-Axis
  • Vertical
  • Horizontal

What Does a Multi-Tasking Mazak Mill Do?

A multi-tasking CNC mill can combine several different cutting processes. The machine may turn, mill drill, tap, and deep-hole bore, hob on one machine. This “one and done” approach to machining saves time because operations are completed on one machine instead of multiple machines. A very advanced form of multitasking provided by Mazak is “Hybrid Multi-Tasking” which also combines additive technologies. A Mazak CNC mill designed for multi-tasking can significantly reduce production lead-times and part costs.

What are the Benefits of a 5-Axis Mazak CNC Mill Compared to 3+2 Machining? 

Mazak 5-axis CNC mills can produce parts in an almost infinite number of sizes and shapes. On a 5-axis machine, the cutting tool moves across not only the X, Y and Z linear axes, but it rotates on the A and B axes to approach a workpiece from any direction. With simultaneous 5-axis machining, all 5 axes engage at the same time. This provides more speed and flexibility as compared with 3 + 2 machining, in which the machine executes a 3-axis milling program with the cutting tool locked into a tilted position using its two rotational axes. In “5-axis positional machining,” the cutting tool is oriented to a fixed position, instead of continuously moving.

What are the Types of Vertical Mazak CNC Mills?

A Vertical Machining Center (VMC) has a spindle with a vertical orientation. Mazak offers vertical machining mills in a range of series to cover multiple applications. The VC series has spindle speeds from 10K to 20K, automatic tool changers (ATC) from 18 to 60 tools and various axis configurations. Mazak currently offers the following vertical machining centers under the INTEGREX model name in 2018; e-Ramtec, e-V, and i-V and i. Many used Mazak machines available today are from the earlier Integrex e-Series. The VCN series features a moving table design, while the VTC (vertical traveling column series) is a fixed table design.

What are the Types of Horizontal Mazak CNC Mills?

Horizontal machining or milling is typically used for machining larger parts. It relies on a spindle that is parallel to the ground floor. Horizontal machining centers allow for a two-pallet changer integration to facilitate unattended operation. Mazak offers at least 7 different series of horizontal mills and often custom produces them for their customers for specific applications. When buying a used horizontal Mazak CNC mill, you’ll want to know the kinds of parts it was designed to produce.

How to Pre-Qualify a Used Mazak CNC Mill for Sale Before Inspection

  1. Ask about the types of parts and materials that this machine has made or is designed to make best.
  2. Ask for good photos. Zoom up in the pictures and look for signs of damage and worn components.
  3. Speak with a local Mazak service provider who can provide service for the machine. Get his/her opinion on any specific machine type that you are considering purchasing.
  4. Search similar years for the Mazak model to see how pricing compares.
  5. Get the hours of operation.
  6. Ask for the maintenance records of the specific Mazak that you are considering. Ask for as much documentation as the seller can provide.
  7. Find out what other tooling or other accessories are for sale along with this Mazak.

Once you’ve done your homework, and you think you’ve finally identified the perfect Mazak CNC mill we recommend that you do an on-site inspection. Here are some inspection tips below.

How to Inspect a Mazak Mill On-Site

  1. Inspect for damage and worn components. Carefully look all over the machine. A used Mazak CNC mill should little wear since they are built to last for years.
  2. Ask to operate the machine to see it run. Make some chips!
  • Listen to the sounds of the axis moving at different speeds
  • Run the spindle(s) at the max RPM.
  • Look at the guards and sensors on the machine. If sensors, switches, wires, and hoses all match and look like they match well, that’s an indication of a well-maintained machine.
  • Make parts on the machine if possible.
  • Check the tool-changer. See how well it changes tools at different areas of the tool changer
  • Check the electrical cabinet for anything that looks like “not factory” – ask about it.
  1. Find out what process controller is on the machine. Has it ever been upgraded?
  2. Review chip & coolant management options.
  3. Find out the electrical requirements for install.
