The machine delivered by Mazak is named Integrex i-400. The Integrex i-400 is an advanced Multi-Tasking machine that delivers maximum versatility, high precision and throughput for medium to large complex parts. The machine combines the capabilities of a high-powered turning center and full-function machining center to produce parts in single setups. This machine configuration work to minimize fixtures, tools, handling and non-cut time.
Additionally, the machine brings dramatic reductions in lead-time and improves part accuracy through the elimination of multiple setups. With full 5-axis machining capability, the machine easily processes fully prismatic parts from solid blocks or castings (chucked or bar fed), round parts, or highly contoured parts.
With this kind of technology, GRIFF Aviation will be able to produce a complete set of parts for one GRIFF every 48 hours. Production will start up in the near future and GRIFF Aviation is working day and night to set up the machine.
- We are very happy with the possibilities this will bring to GRIFF Aviation. With this machine, GRIFF Aviation will be able to produce parts of very high quality. This material would be suitable not only for drones, but also the airline industry, offshore industry and other high demanding areas, says CEO Leif Johan Holand.
The total weight of The Mazak Integrex i-400 is over 20 tons. To get the machine in place proved to be a challenging task for the team at GRIFF Aviation.
