At Mazak, we take our corporate motto – Together Success – very seriously.
Only by partnering with manufacturers across the globe and understanding customers’ needs can we develop the technology that allows shops to stay competitive in an era of rapid technological changes. And that partnership was on full display at DISCOVER 2019, the biggest private manufacturing event in North America.
Visitors who joined the Mazak team at our Florence, Kentucky-based headquarters experienced the state-of-the-art technology designed to meet the challenges of modern manufacturing. Over 30 machines were under power and cutting parts at the event, from simple but innovative machines like the space-saving VC-300A to advanced Multi-Tasking machines like the new INTEGREX i-450H S or the HYBRID Multi-Tasking systems that put the latest additive manufacturing, joining and gear processing solutions on Mazak’s industry-leading subtractive machining platforms.
As a complement to the latest machine tools, Mazak also showcased the latest in control technology, the MAZATROL SmoothAi CNC. The latest addition to the SMOOTH TECHNOLOGY ecosystem, the SmoothAi wowed attendees with cutting-edge machine learning algorithms and AI-powered software functions capable of reducing cycle times, simplifying automation and improving quality. Paired with the Mazak SmartBox, the new control demonstrated the full power of Industry 4.0.
Mazak also highlighted the comprehensive range of automation solutions available to let shops unleash the full capacity of their machines. Visitors saw the ease of integration and use made possible by productive combinations such as the HCN-5000 with Mazak’s Multi-Pallet Pool (MPP) system, the QTU-350 HP with RoboJob Turn Assist and VCN-570C with RoboJob Mill Assist and the QUICK TURN 250MSY with the GR100 Gantry Robot.
