Productivity, profitability and planet drive Mazak focus for EMO

Yamazaki Mazak is heading to this year’s EMO with 12 machines complimented by a range of automation and technology solutions that promise to deliver the three key customer benefits of productivity, profitability and environmentally-aware manufacturing operations.

The Mazak stand at EMO 2021, which runs from the 4th to the 9th October 2021 in Hall 5, Stand E01 of the Fiera Milano in Milan, will focus on how technology can make machine users faster, leaner, greener and more intelligent.

The Mazak stand will showcase a host of new machines, including integrated automation solutions, vertical machining centres and the most recent additions to the INTEGREX i-H series. Under its theme of ‘Discover More’, Mazak will display two world debuts at the show and another machine being exhibited for the first time in Europe.

In addition, Mazak will display its latest CNC technology, MAZATROL SmoothEz, featuring a 15” touchscreen and an intuitive operating system to deliver increased efficiency through faster setup, programming and operation for those with limited NC programming experience.

One of the key themes will be automation with over half of the products showcased with integrated automation systems on show including the latest generation of its flagship PALLETECH system, a new collaborative robot system and Mazak’s latest 5-axis automation solutions for high-mix, low volume work.

Environmentally-aware manufacturing will also be a key focus with technologies such as energy dashboards and digital services helping customers to measure energy utilisation and CO2 impact.

Mazak will also exhibit the latest in virtual machining with the next generation of MAZATROL SmoothAi and Digital Twin technology that can deliver machine and engineering data directly to those who need it supporting production plans and business decisions.

For those that are unable to attend the show in Milan this year, Mazak will make available a digital experience where customers can discover all the latest and new technologies.

Richard Smith, European Group Managing Director at Yamazaki Mazak, commented: “Our theme is ‘Discover More’, but our focus is on the benefits that Mazak users can gain from being faster, leaner, greener and more intelligent in their machining operations.

“We want to clearly define the benefits of Mazak machines and their impact on productivity and profitability. We will demonstrate how lean manufacturing means you can get more from your machines and your people, and how in-built intelligence can drive even greater efficiencies in machining operations. Most importantly, we will also focus on how greener manufacturing can benefit the planet and the bottom line. I’m looking forward to welcoming machine users from across Europe to our stand and showing them a range of new technologies.”
