Mazak will host a special Discover More with Mazak™ Technology and Learning event at its San Francisco facility in Milpitas, California, March 15 – 16 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The event will center on the particular needs of Silicon Valley shops as well as those of the local area manufacturing community in general.
At PMTS 2017, taking place April 25 – 27 in Columbus, Ohio, Mazak will showcase several machining solutions that enable shops to cost effectively achieve huge gains in productivity.
As one of the newest members of Mazak’s additive machine family, the VARIAXIS j-600AM (Additive Manufacturing) Vertical Machining Center features an innovative Wire Arc-type metal deposition system. The technology takes the additive process to whole new levels in terms of speed, allowing shops to quickly and easily grow part features then employ the machine’s advanced 5-axis multi-surface subtractive capabilities to produce high-precision parts complete in single setups.
The new Mazak VTC-805E Vertical Traveling Column Machining Center brings high versatility and productivity to those shops that need to tackle long and/or heavy parts. The machine combines an increased Y-axis stroke, long bed/table size, high spindle speed and torque and Mazak’s new SmoothG CNC control for efficient, powerful machining.
