Digital Customer Experience Launched

Mazak has announced the launch of a new digital customer experience. It features a new interactive tour of its Kentucky campus, immersive Virtual Technology Center and All Axes LIVE, an ongoing series of online events where attendees gain access to new Mazak manufacturing technology. The digital experience begins with the first installment of All Axes LIVE from Mazak's Midwest Technology Center on August 11, 2020, at 11 AM ET.

"At Mazak, both as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the ever-increasingly competitive business landscape, we have challenged ourselves to be agile and find new ways of doing business," said Dan Janka, President of Mazak Corporation. "Our new digital experience applies what we have learned to provide unprecedented access to our products, technology, customer support and expertise."

All Axes LIVE and VARIAXIS C-600 Launch

During the first installment of All Axes LIVE, Mazak will launch the new VARIAXIS C-600 5-axis machining center with its dedicated MAZATROL SmoothAi CNC, as well as new automation solutions. "The new user friendly and cost-effective VARIAXIS C-600 is an ideal first step into 5-axis machining for shops of all sizes," said a company spokesperson. "It fulfills demands for increased speed, stability and power as well as maximum tool capacity. Automation ready, the VARIAXIS C-600 integrates seamlessly with two-pallet changers, overhead gantry loaders/unloaders and standalone robots."

"To further enhance automation integration, the VARIAXIS C-600 provides both front and side automatic door operation. The machine's full front door also spans from the top to the bottom of the machine, which makes for enhanced user access and improved ergonomics," said the spokesperson. An automatic side door allows shops to load and unload parts at the side of the machine, freeing up the machine's front work area and eliminating any interference between automation and operators at the front door.

Featured on the VARIAXIS C-600, Mazak's new MAZATROL SmoothAi is the company's most advanced control. The CNC is designed to simplify everything from part programming to automation integration. "MAZATROL SmoothAi CNC makes EIA/ISO and/or MAZATROL conversational programming faster and easier and features functions such as SMOOTH Project Manager, SMOOTH CAM Ai and MAZATROL TWINS that help manage, create and deploy part programs," said the spokesperson.

Automation highlighted during All Axes LIVE will include the RoboJob TA200, which features an articulating robot with a 44.1-lb. (20 kg) payload capacity and dedicated loading/unloading station and is equipped with an area scanner to create a safe open layout. The robot's dual three-jaw grippers can accommodate parts ranging from 0.39" to 6.69" (10 mm to 170 mm) in diameter, while a simple fixed workpiece table provides easy loading of pre-cut stacks of raw material and unloading of finished parts with minimal operator intervention.

An extension of Mazak's All Axes podcast, All Axes LIVE offers participants a wide range of on-demand educational sessions, facility tours, live cutting demonstrations and the ability to ask questions in real time. Additional details and online registration are available at

The Virtual Technology Center

Following the launch of its series of All Axes LIVE events, Mazak will roll out its Virtual Technology Center and Interactive 360 Kentucky Campus Tour to extend the product and technology experience beyond traditional events, as well as bring the benefits of its 800,000 sq. ft campus to customers across North America on demand. The Virtual Technology Center will feature a rotating lineup of new machines, automation systems and digital technology, as well as the ability to request quotes, schedule in-person visits and innovative ways for customers to connect with Mazak personnel.

Interactive 360 Kentucky Campus Tour

The interactive 360 Kentucky Campus Tour will allow visitors to explore Mazak's North American Manufacturing Plant, National Technology Center and National Parts Center, including the newly completed Spindle Remanufacturing Facility. This advanced facility provides fast turnaround times for high-quality, OEM-factory-certified spindle rebuild services. To minimize downtime, customers can purchase remanufactured spindles, which ship within 24 hours or opt for rebuild within five days.
