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.”

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.
