Yamazaki Mazak is showcasing its latest VARIAXIS 5-axis machine at Southern Manufacturing 2017.

The event runs between the 21st and 23rd of March in Farnborough, UK. Yamazaki Mazak’s machining centre combines a compact footprint with the ability to offer simultaneous 5-axis machining across multiple surfaces. This allows variety of volume, small batch or prototype work commonly undertaken in the subcontracting sector.

It is equipped with SmoothX, the 5-axis version of Mazak’s SMOOTH Technology, the world’s fastest CNC. This includes a 19-inch touchscreen control panel, with the capability to deliver a machining revolution, from programming and cycle times to automation integration and data collection.

The company has regularly attended the Southern Manufacturing show over the years, often shining a spotlight upon a new cutting-edge tool.

Alan Mucklow, Managing Director UK and Ireland Sales Division at Yamazaki Mazak, said: “Southern Manufacturing is the premier UK subcontracting trade show, and has always been a key date in our diary allowing us to showcase Mazak’s latest generation of machine tools to a sector which provides the backbone to UK manufacturing.”

He continued: “The VARIAXIS j-500/5X sets new standards for multi-tasking machines and is designed to deliver high speed, high-accuracy machining continuously, ensuring maximum ease of operation for the machinist. The VARIAXIS will be in live-cutting action for the duration of the show and we look forward to demonstrating the machine’s capabilities to those subcontractors looking to make a step-change in their machining operations.”
