The event will feature Mazak technologies that simplify part production processes as well as enhance shop floor productivity and versatility.

A must-see for attendees will be Mazak’s MAZATROL SmoothX CNC. This progressive CNC has an intuitive human/machine interface that puts unmatched speed and convenience at the machine operator’s fingertips and offers several unique features and functions that further enhance the performance of Mazak machines. Mazak’s MAZATROL Smooth controls are part of the company’s SMOOTH TECHNOLOGY platform, which has transformed the way Mazak equipment performs, especially in terms of 5-axis and complex contouring operations.

Event attendees will also experience some of Mazak’s latest advancements in milling, turning, 5-axis and multi-tasking technologies for job shops and manufacturers in a variety of industries, including aerospace and medical. To demonstrate these technologies, application specialists from Mazak and DMI will run real-world part applications on the machines exhibited.

Manufacturers seeking a cost effective way to increase productivity will want to check out the Mazak QUICK TURN PRIMOS 100, a small 2-axis turning center that requires only 55" x 49" of floor space. At the event, this high-speed, high-accuracy and high-torque machine will be paired with a parts catcher to demonstrate how easily it can enhance efficiency through unattended operation.

Also on display will be the VERTICAL CENTER UNIVERSAL (VCU) 500A 5X Vertical Machining Center with a 5-axis rotary/tilt table and MAZATROL SmoothX CNC. This simple but innovative machine brings advanced technology and production value to high-precision small parts processing for a variety of industries.

On the multi-tasking side, the event will spotlight Mazak’s highly versatile QUICK TURN NEXUS (QTN) 250-II MSY CNC Turning Center with Multi-Tasking and the advanced INTEGREX i-150 Multi-Tasking machine. As an MSY configuration, the QTN 250-II MSY features milling and Y-axis capability as well as a second turning spindle for DONE IN ONE® part processing operations. The machine will be paired with a parts catcher and bar feeder.

DMI will showcase the precision and throughput of the INTEGREX i-150 via a complex medical component single-setup machining demonstration. The machine will also be equipped with the MAZATROL SmoothX CNC that further enhances its functionality, speed and efficiency.
