The QTU 250MSY from Mazak features a milling turret with a rotary tool spindle to perform Multi-
Tasking operations, a second turning spindle for Done In One® part production, Y-axis
functionality for off-centerline machining, an advanced integral spindle/motor headstock, special servo-driven turret,  spindle/motor headstock for extreme rigidity in heavy-duty machining
as well as high-speed, high-torque operations with zero backlash.
A full-circumference C-axis headstock break provides high-accuracy positioning to within 0.0001 deg.
The QTU 250MSY small footprint multi-tasking turning center from Mazak is ideal for machining high precision small parts used in medical devices, engine components and electronic enclosures.
