Machine tools are known as “Mother Machines” since they are used to make other machines that produce virtually everything we use in our daily life. Accordingly, machine tools have a very important role to support the basis of manufacturing industries all over the world. As a machine tool manufacturer, Yamazaki Mazak’s mission is to enrich our daily life by developing machine tools that can produce high precision components with reduced in-process time.
Mazak have developed unique products that realize unsurpassed productivity and established 79 Technology and Technical Centers all over the world to provide total solutions and optimum service support close to customers.
Additionally, Mazak began machine tool production in foreign countries much earlier than other Japanese machine tool manufacturers - starting in 1974 with the manufacturing plant in the U.S, Mazak have established manufacturing plants in the U.K, Singapore, and China. Mazak are the only machine tool manufacturer that has established a global production base. By utilizing the local manufacturing plants and global support bases, Mazak have provided enhanced service and support and established strong relationships with customers.
Mazak will continue to support manufacturing industries that make products to enrich our daily lives and be your partner for innovation as the number 1 machine tool manufacturer.
Mazak machine tools are Intelligent Machines
Today manufacturers face many challenges from short-lived product diversification to a lack of experienced operators. In order to solve these problems, Mazak strives to develop machines and machining technologies for production efficiency and higher quality.
Intelligent Functions are unique technologies that incorporate the expertise of experienced machine operators. Intelligent machines equipped with a variety of Intelligent Functions reduce the load on operators and provide high productivity and high quality machining. With intelligent Functions, Mazak machines can be operated with confidence.
Intelligent Machining Functions
Smooth Machining Configuration
Machining time, finished surface smoothness and machining shape can be adjusted for improved productivity.
Variable Acceleration Control
New function which permits the faster acceleration capability of linear axes to be used whenever possible. The slower acceleration of the rotary axes is not used for all program commands,resulting in faster machining cycle times.
Smooth Corner Control
Smooth cornering to reduce unnecessary acceleration/deceleration for improved finished surfaces and minimised cycle times.
Active Vibration Control
Minimised vibration function for high-speed, high-accuracy machining and longer tool life.
Intelligent Thermal Shield
Unique Mazak heat displacement compensation system.
Intelligent Setup Functions
Intelligent Safety Shield
Functions for safe operation during machine setup and automatic operation.
Intelligent Balance Analyzer
Shows required weight and locations to eliminate unbalanced condition.
Intelligent Bar Loader System
Scheduling which determines machining sequence for minimum unused bar remnant.
Mazak Voice Adviser
Verbal support for machine setup and safe conditions confirmation.
Intelligent Maintenance Functions
Position misalignment and incline of the rotary axes can automatically be measured and compensated to realize high-accuracy 5-axis machining.
Intelligent Maintenance Support
Useful information for improved preventative maintenance to prevent unexpected machine downtime.
Intelligent Performance Spindle
Monitoring milling spindle status - designed to minimize downtime and improve preventative maintenance.
Done in One
Mazak’s Done in One concept incorporates all processes from raw materials input through final machining in just one machine. Achieved with a second turning spindle and a milling turret or with a two-spindle, two-turret configuration, Done in One machines offer maximum productivity, reduce production lead times, improve machining accuracy and lower operating expenses.
Done in One Capability:
- Increases capacity, flexibility, productivity and profitability
- Improves machining accuracy and overall part quality
- Streamlines production and boosts output with fewer machines and less increases in workforce
- Maximizes use of floor space
- Enhances overall management and enables production of parts on demand
- Reduces part costs via fewer fixtures and less tooling
- Keeps manufacturers competitive
