Striking a Balance Between Machine Tool Performance and Value

Some manufacturers prefer to simplify the machine tool acquisition process by prioritising value – but this often comes at the cost of performance. For the highest return on investment, it is important to find a balance between performance and value. While this seems more daunting than comparing sticker prices, minimising lifetime costs makes it significantly easier to keep up with technological advances and to grow business.

Mazak Lathe Tools Explained

A lathe is a machine tool that rotates, or turns, the metal workpiece around an axis of rotation, with tools applied to cut the metal and form a final symmetrical part or component. Modern lathes are usually computer numerically controlled (CNC) in which the lathe’s operations are programmed by an operator.

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.
