Mazak to Host Technology and Education Event for Midwest Shops

Mazak will host its annual Discover More With Mazak event at its Midwest Technology Center in Schaumburg, IL, May 2 - 4.

In addition to real-world part cutting demonstrations - including Mazak's HCN-5000/50 horizontal machining center, QUICK TURN 250MSY and QUICK TURN PRIMOS 100 turning centers - the company will conduct seminars and training sessions centered around its MAZATROL Smooth CNC technology. Attendees will learn about the MAZATROL SmoothX, SmoothG and SmoothC controls that each provide both conversational and EIA/ISO programming capabilities.

Mazak's line of MAZATROL Smooth CNCs are part of the company's SMOOTH TECHNOLOGY, a process-performance platform that spans the entire part production landscape. SMOOTH TECHNOLOGY also factors in automation and plant-wide connectivity as the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) continues to transform the manufacturing industry through big data.

The platform supports the MTConnect open communications protocol and includes an NC Data Library for connecting machines to an Ethernet system. Machines with SMOOTH TECHNOLOGY and an MTConnect adapter make it easy for shops to collect data from the MAZATROL Smooth CNCs.

Furthermore, attendees will discover how to securely enter the world of IIoT with the Mazak SmartBox. This scalable, end-to-end solution connects manufacturing equipment, including machines, software and other devices, to a factory's network and allows the free flow of information to management systems via MTConnect.

Among the machines demonstrated at the event, the HCN-5000/50 will feature Mazak's PALLETECH automation technology for high volume production of large heavy parts. The QUICK TURN 250MSY will perform single set-up, DONE IN ONE precision part processing, and the small-footprint QUICK TURN PRIMOS 100 will showcase high-efficiency production of simple workpieces. Additionally, many of the machines will incorporate the latest ancillary equipment from Mazak's Value Inspired Partners to demonstrate how shops can boost profitability with complete manufacturing solutions.
