Two heads are better than one

Two heads are better than one

Yamazaki Mazak has launched the latest version of its Multiplex machines, specifically designed for high volume applications.

The new Multiplex W-200Y + GL-100 offers a step-change in performance, due to the combination of two spindles, two turrets and a super-fast gantry loader for maximum productivity.

The two spindles enable continuous simultaneous machining with automatic workpiece transfer from one spindle to the other – due to the ability of each headstock to move towards the centre of the machine in the Z-axis.

The use of twin spindles enables the Multiplex to reduce production lead-time, operators, programming and in-process materials – all making the manufacturing process significantly more cost-effective and competitive.
