| It is not without reason that the Mazak INTEGREX i-400 is called ‛the ultimate DONE-IN-ONE machine’. This multitasking machine can both turn and mill in one and the same position in addition to performing full-scale 3D processing. Processing can be done in a wide range of materials. The machine processes even difficult materials such as Inconel with an extremely high degree of precision. |
Mazak INTEGREX i-400 can process components up to Ø 658 x 1500 mm.
A high degree of precision is essential when processing components for the oil and gas industry, where some components are used in drilling wells far below the surface of the sea. Here, the acceptable tolerances are often microscopic and can be as little as a few micrometres. The degree of processing precision is further increased by the ability of the Mazak INTEGREX i-400 to both turn and mill in one and the same position.
Increased focus on quality
“With the investment in this Mazak INTEGREX i-400 and previously in the Zeiss measuring equipment, we are further increasing both our skills and the quality of our products,” says Managing Director Henrik Holvad from RIVAL. “We are very focused on meeting the extremely high requirements from our customers in the oil and gas industry and at the same time document the quality of the components we process. In the end, it also makes quality control easier for the customer.”

RIVAL’s employees enjoy being able to use their skills in the work with the interesting and challenging tasks involved in processing critical components. “A measurement and quality report accompanies all the components we supply,” says machinist Carsten Østergaard from RIVAL. “When we start up the production, we prepare a list of the measurements that need to be checked during processing of the component. The list is approved by the customer’s quality control manager before production begins and forms the basis of the final report to the customer.”
