Westcoast Performance uses only top-of-the-line Mazak machine tools including a four-axis horizontal CNC work center and CNC lathes.
CNC Horizontal Milling Department
Our Mazak Horizontal Machining Center is equipped with many customer-driven features including 80-120 tool magazines, 10,000 ft. of memory, full four axis simultaneous machining, Renishaw touch probe and six pallet pool. All our machines are late model units and feature high (from 7,000 to 15,000) RPM cutting tools, as well as rapid feed rates from 945 to 1,200 inches per minute.
Our eight CNC Horizontal Machine Center & three CNC Lathes are controlled by two 32-bit microprocessors for high speed processing (more than five times faster than conventional CNC
systems). Many functions, such as tool changing, pallet indexing, spindle orientation and door opening/closing can be performed simultaneously, further minimizing non-cutting time.
This high-speed manufacturing ensures the highest level of productivity, accuracy and quality while providing the lowest possible cost.
Our horizontal machining center and lathes are staffed with qualified setup personnel and supervised by experienced CNC programmers. Our NC programmers use Mastercam┬Č< software to download NC files directly to our Mazak machine centers via our 10/100Base-T communications network.
This direct connection ensures that each part is cut exactly as specified by the engineerĺ─˘s designs and allows each machine to operate 24 hours per day, five days per week.
CNC Lathe Department
Our lathe department uses three Mazak Lathes┬ĺ├Čttheir latest addition being the Integrex 200SY, featuring live tooling with a 40-tool magazine with an additional Sub spindle and Y-axis.
Additional CNC lathe equipment consists of HP-250 models. We also have a QT-15, which features ┬ĺ├║├║live tooling,┬ĺ├╣├╣ sub spindle and an automated robotic gantry loader. All our machines are late model units and feature high (from 3,000 to 6,000) RPM, as well as Rapid Feed Rates from 945 to 1,200 inches per minute.
