The Mazak UD-400/5X has won the Main Prize as “One of the Best 10 Products in Japan in 2017” awards, held by the Nikkan Kogyo Shimbun Ltd., one of the leading industrial newspapers in Japan.
Mazak’s versatile VARIAXIS i-300 simultaneous 5-axis vertical machining center is now even more flexible and efficient with the addition of a high-capacity Auto Work Changer (AWC). Designed for automated small- to medium-size part-processing operations, the new VARIAXIS i-300 AWC excels in machining aluminum and other nonferrous metals for a wide variety of industries, including aerospace, medical and automotive.
At the Performance Racing Industry (PRI) Show, taking place December 7 – 9 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, Mazak demonstrated how its latest machine tools provide the speed, precision and processing flexibility necessary for the prototyping and production of components for racecars, trucks, dirt bikes, dragsters, boats and other high-performance vehicles.
One of the biggest problems facing manufacturing today is the practice of indiscriminate internetworking. To take advantage of IT/OT integration and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), some manufacturers continue to connect networks together with limited regard to security and the false assumption that minimal security is enough to ward off a cyber attack.
At Gear Expo 2017, Mazak will demonstrate recent advancements in manufacturing systems and processes that make the business of producing high-quality gears an easier, faster and highly profitable endeavor for job shops across all industry segments. Visitors to booth 123 will discover how Mazak’s Multi-Tasking Machines, when equipped with the latest MAZATROL Smooth CNC and Mazak SMOOTH Gear Cutting Solutions, can serve as adaptive machining solutions for precision gears of all shapes and sizes.
