Garner Industries Installs New CNC Turning Center

Press Release:
  Aug 24, 2010 — Garner Industries – a job shop in Lincoln, Nebraska – announces the purchase of a new turning center with advanced CNC machining capabilities. The Mazak Quick Turn Nexus-II 250-II MSY allows Garner to machine complex parts for customers whose requirements are up to 3” diameter. The Y-axis and live tooling capabilities make multi-axis machining possible on one machine.

The turning center features a 10” diameter chuck with a maximum machining diameter of 14.750”, 4000 RPM main spindle, 6” diameter chuck as well as a 6000 RPM sub-spindle, 4500 RPM live tools, and 3” thru spindle capacity with a 6’ bar feeder. It can be used for machining a wide variety of common and exotic materials including carbon steel, aluminum, stainless steel, as well as high-performance alloys such as inconel, and plastics.

“This two spindle machine will enable us to offer customers more CNC machining flexibility. For example, Garner can now offer complete parts from one machine and a single setup. This will open capacity at our horizontal mills and lead to shorter lead times and higher customer satisfaction,” stated Scott McLain, president of Garner industries. “We can now bar-feed up to 3” diameter materials utilizing the machine’s full C-axis capability combined with the Y-axis to perform complex operations such as thread milling and helical interpolation creating complex features demanded from today’s part print designs.”
