Discover More With Mazak - Southwest
Mazak invites manufacturers to its Discover More With Mazak™ event at the company’s Southwest Technology Center in Houston, where they will have the opportunity to learn how to shorten lead times, increase part quality and boost profitability using the company’s highly versatile machine tools and applications expertise.
Mazak will demonstrate the latest multi-tasking, 5-axis, milling and turning processes on Mazak machines that include: the INTEGREX i-300S Multi-Tasking machine that employs a second spindle to efficiently produce medium to large complex parts; the QUICK TURN NEXUS 550 MY turning center that features milling capability and Y-axis functionality to process long, large-diameter parts in single setups; the ORBITEC 20 large part machining center that can perform a variety of operations on difficult-to-rotate workpieces in a single setup; and the space-saving VERTICAL CENTER UNIVERSAL 400A 5X vertical machining center that uses a 5-axis rotary/tilt table to bring value and precision to small parts processing.
Applications engineers will also be available to discuss new ways attendees can streamline their operations. For example, Mazak machines can perform multiple processes in a single setup, which helps minimize material handling and work-in-process inventory. Also, the company’s user-friendly CNC technology gives operators the flexibility to change setups on Mazak machines very quickly. Furthermore, the company encourages attendees to present their part-production challenges so its engineers can offer solutions for overcoming such difficulties.
Mazak also will host technical seminars that encompass different ways in which job shops can streamline their operations and speed up product delivery using advanced complementary machine tool technology such as Renishaw gauging and Schunk workholding.
