Mazak further expanded its machine tool technology portfolio with the debut of an all-new line of SYNCREX Swiss-style machines at the company’s DISCOVER 2021 event. With Mazak’s well-known performance and quality, the extremely precise SYNCREX models feature seven, eight and nine-axis configurations and are optimized for high-production of small parts.
As one of the key components within Mazak’s MPower customer support program, the company’s new online MPower On-Demand Learning (MODL) system further enhances training and makes essential courses easily accessible to today’s busy shops. MPower On-Demand Learning allows users to custom-tailor training programs, select subject matter from over 100 multi-level courses and schedule classes for times that suit their schedules, especially when in-person instruction becomes impossible or inconvenient. The system makes courses accessible on demand to shops anytime, anywhere.
Mazak’s DISCOVER 2021 technology and education event takes place October 25-29 and promises all-new machines and technological firsts from Mazak. Among those is the debut of a new Swiss-type machine series that further expands Mazak's high-volume, small-part processing options for today’s manufacturers.
You're on the lookout for every advantage that can propel your shop past your competition. At Mazak, we offer a long list of great solutions to help you do just that – and we're going to share that list with you as we Move Manufacturing Forward at DISCOVER 2021, October 25-29 at our North American Headquarters Campus in Florence, Kentucky.
Mazak’s MPower is the industry’s most comprehensive customer service and support program. That's the obvious reason it matters to every Mazak customer. But to truly understand MPower's value requires delving into all that the program offers.
With the launch of its new MPower customer support program, Mazak takes complete customer care to the next level, giving manufacturers the tools they need to achieve their business goals and ensure continued success.
With an ongoing commitment to provide the industry’s most comprehensive and responsive service and support, Mazak Canada has assumed direct management of parts sales for all Canadian customers. This restructuring will ensure those customers receive the parts they need as quickly as possible and with Mazak handling all freight, customs clearance and delivery tracking.
On-machine probing is particularly critical for Mazak customer Jasper Engines and Transmissions. The shop’s Mazak HCN 6800 Horizontal Machining Center processes families of engine cylinder heads, and the parts can look similar, but involve very different dimensions. For this reason, the first tool Jasper Engines and Transmissions runs is a probe that confirms a part is loaded, identifies it and conveys that information to the machine’s control, which in turn selects and runs the correct program for that particular part – virtually eliminating any risk of error.
Manufacturing demands more than your best. It's a constant race to add capacity, tackle new challenges and outpace competitors. How do you balance performance and value in the machine tools you buy to ensure that you always receive the highest return on your investment?
How do you make a great machine even better? At Mazak, we finessed every aspect of the HCN-6800 to create the HCN-6800 NEO, with improvements that capitalize on its performance, precision, reliability and production value.
Mazak’s DISCOVER 2021 technology and education event is on schedule and ready to Move Manufacturing Forward. The in-person event takes place October 25-29 at the company’s Florence, Kentucky, manufacturing campus. As with previous DISCOVER events, this year’s promises all-new machines and technological firsts from Mazak.
Much as the model names Porsche® 911® and Jeep® Grand Cherokee® are icons of the automotive world, so are Mazak’s HCN Series of Horizontal Machining Centers and its VARIAXIS Series of Vertical Machining Centers among manufacturers. All these iconic brand names share a reputation for performance, quality and reliability achieved through continuous improvement and redesign with the end user’s needs in mind.
The goal of any online personal service and support portal is to enhance the customer experience and add value. Unfortunately, as many manufacturing equipment suppliers rush to jump on the me-too portal bandwagon, the results are often ill-equipped personal portals that, in the long run, fail to be truly useful.
FLORENCE, Ky., May 7, 2021 – At this year’s Precision Machining Technology Show (PMTS) August 10-12 in Cleveland, Mazak will highlight some of its latest high-output, cost-effective and space-saving machine tool technology in Booth #3083. In particular, the company will spotlight its Kentucky-built Ez Series of machines and CNC – all touted as game changers for medium to high-volume small-part applications.
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) makes it possible for manufacturers to measure and analyze the performance of their machine tools so they can boost their productivity and profitability. As the supply-chain disruptions of the global pandemic demonstrated, the ability to work remotely, understand machine behavior and use these two aspects of digitization to maintain throughput offers huge advantages for decision making and business continuity. But these advantages require data connectivity, which in turn demands cybersecurity to protect against loss, corruption or espionage.
“When should my company make capital investments?” “What solution can I integrate that will make the biggest impact on my bottom line?” “How do I know when to go on the offense and when to hold back?” These are the tough business strategy questions that shop owners and leaders have to ask every day. And there are few better times to pause and take stock of how your business is doing than now, as the first quarter of 2021 draws to a close.
