Mazak Integrex e-1060 Post

Does Siemens offer a post for a Mazak 5-axis Integrex e-1060?




Re: Mazak Integrex e-1060 Post

My guess is that they do - but maybe not since they are transitioning to "post configurator" posts. I think there are still siemens employees that make "postbuilder" ones too. These machines have a lot of capability. I would make sure that the post you get is:

1) Forward compatible (is open? require maintenance?)

2) Has all of these capabilities : turn, mill 5 axis, mill prismatic G68, G12.1 polar, XZC mode polar, cylindrical interpolation, on machine probing, lock axis and rotate udes functional.

You would probably be served best by a "kit" with CSE ISV with it (but this may be a little expensive.)

Also make sure that B axis is functional on lathe. It is common to have to turn in (move B) while approaching internal turning for travel reasons.

Oh - and support to flip the turning tools (flip tool around holder.)

If I were you...

Create your own test parts.

Make sure to test EVERY operation/cut type you want the post to support.

Then make sure the posted output from your part runs crrectly on the machine.

Note (for reference) my test parts are typically:

- Turning: about 20 operations PER TURRET, PER SPINDLE (i.e. 2 turret 2 spindle = 80 operations)

- Milling (5 axis): about 150 operations if table-table.  200+ if tool rotates.  Add 50%-100% for 2nd spindle
