PWR Advanced Cooling Technology had a 7 day Christmas shutdown while their Mazaks continued to run unmanned for the whole week.
Take two Mazak Palletech Systems feeding four Mazak Variaxis i-600 5-axis simultaneous machining centers, add two Mazak Multiple Pallet Pool Systems feeding two Mazak Variaxis i-700 5-axis simultaneous machining centers, load all pallets and come back 7 days later.
Result: 840 hours of unmanned machining, no scrap, no broken tools.
PWR is engineering the unfair advantage with Mazak.
“The continued reliability of our Mazak Variaxis machining centers gave us the performance and productivity to stay one step ahead on our ever increasing demand in our toolroom here at PWR.” Rob Owen, PWR Machine Shop Manager.
