Planning for Growth: Auman Adds Five-Axis Vertical Machining Center

At Auman, we’re planning for growth. That’s why we recently added a Mazak VORTEX e-1060V/8 vertical machining center to our equipment lineup. Joining our more than 20 CNC machines and three CMMs, the VORTEX e-1060V/8 is now our largest five-axis machine. This vertical machining center increases our part production capacity and multiplies our machining capabilities by combining multiple machining operations into one center. This allows us to efficiently produce large, complex workpieces for a variety of industries, including defense and HVAC. The vertical machining center also positions Auman for higher productivity, as it has the ability to perform simultaneous 5-axis machining and multiple surface machining in a single workpiece setup.

Other advantageous features of the Mazak VORTEX e-1060V/8 vertical machining center include:

  • Tilting spindle: 90 degrees
  • Two-pallet changing
  • Large pallet size for processing big, complex workpieces
  • Maximum speed of 10,000 rpm

The VORTEX e-1060V/8 complements Auman’s existing equipment line, which includes:

  • Mazak 400Y, Mazak 50Y, and Mazak Slant 50 horizontal turning machines
  • Hancook VTL vertical turning machines
  • Mazak H800, Mazak FH880, KIA Horizontal Boring Mill, and Nagata HN80C-Bar milling machines
  • Cranes
Auman also performs inspections with available resources that include three CMMs, laser scanning, and traditional manual inspection. All Auman equipment is housed in our 80,000-square-foot, fully air-conditioned facility that includes a climate-controlled CMM inspection room. Our facility provides a comfortable and pleasant working environment for all of our employees as well as an inviting space for clients to visit and see their jobs in progress. From our equipment to our facility, Auman makes every effort to provide our employees with a professional, state-of-the art experience and a pleasant working atmosphere. By taking care of our employees, we’re continuing to build a strong team of engineering and machining professionals that produces exceptional work and positions Auman for continued growth.
