Mazak will host its annual Discover More With Mazak Event at its Midwest Technology Center in Schaumburg, Illinois, May 1-3, 2018. The Discover More With Mazak Western Region Technology + Education Event will take place June 5-8, 2018 at Mazak's Western Technology Center in Gardena, California.

Discover More With Mazak Event at the Midwest Technology Center is an interactive learning event that will give attendees an opportunity to explore the latest manufacturing technologies and techniques that can elevate a shop’s level of productivity.

Event attendees will experience the capabilities of 19 of Mazak’s advanced milling, turning, 5-axis and multi-tasking machines, including one of its latest, the VC-500A/5X vertical machining center, as application engineers perform a variety of real-life part cutting demonstrations. With a trunnion-style rotary/tilt table and new 60-tool capacity magazine, the VC-500A/5X allows for the accurate, cost-effective processing of small complex parts via full 5-axis machining while reducing valuable set-up time.

At the event, several machines, including the Quick Turn 250 and the QT-PRIMOS 100 turning centers, will be paired with cost-effective automation systems to demonstrate how easy it is to gain versatility, flexibility and productivity with the right automation solution. The Quick Turn 250 will feature a prepackaged robotic loading system that maximizes profit potential by enabling unmanned operation, while the high-speed, high-accuracy and high-torque QT-Primos 100 will have a gantry loader that speeds loading and unloading.

At the event, Mazak and its Value Inspired Partners (VIPs) will present the latest information on some of the industry’s hottest trends, including emerging technologies that are changing the manufacturing landscape. Attendees will see the advantages of Smooth Technology, a process-performance platform that is transforming the manufacturing industry and that incorporates Mazak’s line of Mazatrol SmoothX, SmoothG and SmoothC controls as well as automation and plant-wide connectivity. DP Technology-Espirit, LNS America, MEMEX and Sandvik will also conduct multiple presentations in the Technology Center on complementary technologies for Mazak machines to create more innovative products and turnkey processes.

 

Mazak’s Western Region Technology + Education Event will take place June 5-8, 2018 at its Western Technology Center in Gardena, California.

At this event, Mazak will showcase the latest advancements in multi-tasking technology and a wide variety of cost-effective automation solutions – from simple to complex – that can enable unmanned operations and increase spindle utilization. The capabilities of 17 of Mazak’s latest machine tools will be in action as application engineers perform a variety of real-life part cutting demonstrations.

One of the machines in action will be the VC-500A/5X vertical machining center. With a trunnion-style rotary/tilt table and new 60-tool capacity magazine, the VC-500A/5X allows for the accurate, cost-effective processing of small complex parts via full 5-axis machining while reducing valuable set-up time. In addition, several Integrex series machines will demonstrate how advanced multi-tasking efficiently produces complex components.

More than 10 different robots completing different manufacturing tasks will also be on display. Several machines – including the QUICK TURN 250 turning center and the Multiplex 6200 turning center with multi-tasking capability – will be paired with cost-effective automation systems to demonstrate how easy it is to gain versatility, flexibility and productivity with the right automation solution. The Quick Turn 250 will feature a prepackaged robotic loading system that maximizes profit potential by enabling unmanned operation, while the duel-spindle, dual-turret Multiplex 6200 will have a gantry loader that speeds loading and unloading.

Mazak and several of its Value Inspired Partners (VIPs) will present a series of TEK talks on some of the industry’s hottest trends and techniques. Attendees will learn how Smooth Technology, a process-performance platform that is transforming the manufacturing industry, brings unmatched speed, accuracy and functionality to metalworking applications, and discover how easy it is to securely enter the world of IIoT with the Mazak SmartBox.
