FLORENCE, Ky., July 29, 2019 – At DISCOVER 2019, the industry’s largest private-sector manufacturing education and technology event, Mazak Corporation will demonstrate more than 30 manufacturing systems ranging from cost-efficient turning and milling solutions to state-of-the-art HYBRID technologies that allow manufacturers to reimagine part-production operations altogether. Visitors to the event will also experience the full line of automation solutions available for Mazak equipment, as well as the latest productivity-enhancing SMOOTH TECHNOLOGY digital tools. DISCOVER 2019 takes place at Mazak’s North American Manufacturing Headquarters in Florence, Kentucky, November 5-7 and 12-13.
Headlining the category of horizontal mills is the HCN-5000, which brings unsurpassed performance, precision, reliability and production value to the high-volume production of large, heavy parts. In addition to a wide range of optional spindle types and power options, the machine is available with Mazak’s Multi-Pallet Pool (MPP) System, a compact multiple pallet stocker system ideal for manufacturers that require basic automation to increase productivity and/or have limited floor space that prevents the installation of a system with a horizontal pallet stocker.
In addition to the HCN-5000 with MPP, horizontal milling centers on display at the show will include the HC-5000 and the HCN-6800.
Mazak’s complete range of vertical milling solutions will be represented at DISCOVER 2019, including the VCN-570C, a vertical machining center that brings advanced technology, performance and value to an expansive variety of metalcutting applications with its robust 30 hp, 15,000 rpm standard spindle. The machine will be demonstrated alongside a RoboJob part-loading system, a simple and reliable way to significantly reduce setup time and ensure the highest repeatability and accuracy for machining operations.
In addition to the VCN-570C with RoboJob loader, vertical milling solutions at the show will include the FJV-35/80, VC-300A, VC-500C/2PC, VCN-575C and VTC-200C Vertical Machining Centers.
