Technology and innovation will help Australian manufacturers to remain competitive

Manufacturing has always been defined by relentless innovation. Across industries and around the world, manufacturers have pursued cutting-edge technologies to maintain a competitive advantage, from the rise of NC and CNC machining to today’s fully interconnected and online facilities. And in response to the pressing issues of our time, such as the widening skills gap or the rise of mass customization, Mazak have sought to provide state-of-the-art solutions that make it possible for operators to be more productive than ever before.

Why Multi-Tasking?

Multi-Tasking adds efficiency to every aspect of manufacturing production. Because it enables start-to-finish production of parts that require a multi-axis approach to multiple processes, it cuts production lead times and part costs by eliminating, in many cases, the need for multiple clampings and multiple machines. That same single-setup ease and convenience also increases machining accuracy and part quality because parts stay on one machine rather than moving from one machine to the next involving numerous part setups.

Combined G-Code and Conversational Programming Strategies

Manufacturers’ part programming needs vary from one shop and industry segment to the next. So their machine tool CNC needs are different as well. Truly effective controls allow for the programming of complex to simple part geometries programed either in the front office or on the shop floor at the machine tool. G-code (EIA/ISO) and conversational types of part programming make this possible.

Cost-effective, fast and reliable spindle repairs and rebuilds are best done by the original manufacturer

The spindle is the heart of a machine tool, and when it gives out, repair and rebuild can resuscitate it for continued service and productivity. But these are delicate operations, and they must be performed according to specific process procedures using the best equipment and replacement parts. Optimal results are achieved when the professionals who originally produced the spindle are the ones to repair and rebuild it.
