With the unveiling of Mazak's NEW SMOOTH TECHNOLOGY at IMTS, the company will show the manufacturing world a dramatic evolution in CNC performance – one that expands the concept far beyond what a machine’s control typically represents.
SMOOTH TECHNOLOGY is a complete process-performance platform that spans the entire part-production landscape, from programming and setup to actual metal removal operations to automation to monitoring/data collection and transfer. It combines the advanced capabilities of today’s machine tools and leading-edge CNC processing and software technologies with that of Mazak’s unparalleled years of engineering expertise.
The NEW MAZATROL SmoothX CNC – the fastest, smartest and most seamless control to power the machine tool industry yet – is a key element of the SMOOTH TECHNOLOGY platform, along with new machine hardware and servo systems. They designed every aspect of this highly progressive machine tool control in direct response to real-world issues and customer input.
They will demonstrate the NEW SMOOTH TECHNOLOGY on seven of their latest machine tools at IMTS so that you can see how this high-performance platform eliminates two of the most common CNC bottlenecks – sluggish hardware and slow processing speeds – to dramatically shorten machining times and enhance such operations as full simultaneous 5-axis machining and complex mold production.[youtube]iO-LWSUr3bI[/youtube]
