European machine users can now enjoy a 360 tour of Mazak’s stand at EMO 2021.

Mazak is offering European machine users the opportunity to experience the digital Mazak EMO stand by immersing themselves in a full 360-degree interactive video stand tour.

By visiting the website users will have the opportunity to virtually experience the Mazak stand, accessing all the information available to a regular stand visitor, from the comfort of their own mobile phone or office desktop.

The virtual experience is packed with information about Mazak’s world debuts, integrated automation solutions and CNC technology, with the virtual 360 stand tour promising the same level of information to virtual visitors as those who visit the stand in person.

Visitors can watch machine and automation videos, access technical information and learn more about services such as Mazak’s ‘Go Green environmental manufacturing initiatives such as the Smooth Energy Dashboards and Mazak iCONNECT, a new customer service portal being launched at the show.

New machines being exhibited include two world debuts, the new European-built machines, the VCE-600, a high-specification entry-level machining center with a large Y-axis stroke, and the VCN-700, a new ‘performance-line’ machining center that is the latest addition to the highly successful VCN range.

New automation systems include the latest in 5-axis automation and the preview model of Ez Loader 10 (pronounced ‘easy’), a highly portable plug-and-play collaborative robot ideally suited to jobshops and subcontractors operating multiple machines. In addition, the virtual stand includes information about the new SmoothEz control, the latest addition to the MAZATROL conversational programming range.

Yamazaki Mazak Ltd

Yamazaki Mazak is the world’s largest manufacturer of computer controlled (CNC) metal-cutting machines. With over 260 different models, the Mazak product range includes CNC lathes, machining centres, multi-tasking machines and flexible manufacturing systems as well as laser processing machines.

Machine tools are called “Mother Machine” because they relate to the manufacturing of almost every product around us and are very important in supporting the base of “world manufacturing.” Our mission as a machine tool maker is to enrich people’s lives and contribute to society by developing and providing high performance machine tools that can produce high accuracy work in a short time.

We were among the first to start foreign production as a Japanese machine tool maker. Following the establishment of Mazak Corporation in the USA, we expanded our production base worldwide to include the UK, Singapore and China, as well as further expanding our Japanese manufacturing operations. We are the only machine tool maker to have established a global production system. With these local plants, we have been able to provide high quality service and have built strong relationships based on mutual trust with customers from all over the world.

True to the Yamazaki principle of supporting the customer locally, Mazak’s European Manufacturing plant, in Worcester UK, opened in June 1987 and was immediately recognised as the most advanced machine tool manufacturing plant in Europe. The factory has expanded three times since then and now offers over 29,000m2

This is a complete machine tool manufacturing plant. Mazak machines the components that go to make its spindles, turrets, tool magazines and Mazak even manufactures its own sheet metal covers. As with all Mazak manufacturing plants, the most rigorous practices and Kaizen programmes ensure continuous improvement.

Serving all of Europe’s markets, more than 80% of the machine tools built in Worcester are exported from the UK into Europe. More than 17,000 Mazak machines have been manufactured here so far and this number continues to grow every day.

Mazak European Manufacturing Plant is recognised for its factory automation, technology and overall management practices. Selected as one of the “Top Ten Companies in the World” by the Swedish Royal Academy of Science and Technology underscores this worldwide reputation.

As with all Mazak factories, this facility comprises a variety of flexible manufacturing systems, consisting of machining centres, multi-tasking CNC lathes, and a sheet metal FMS – all designed for unmanned operation.

The plant benefits from highly skilled employees who are committed to continuous improvement through the 25 “Kaizen” teams in operation.
