In its centenary year, Yamazaki Mazak (www.mazakeu.co.uk
) is heading to EMO 2019
with plans for its biggest-ever stand, hosting the largest number of machines and automation solutions ever exhibited by the company (Hall 27, Stand B52).
The exhibition will see Mazak give seven machines their world debuts and two their European debuts, with new Integrex multi-tasking, five-axis, hybrid and turning machines among those on display.
It will showcase 27 different machines in total — two more than at EMO 2017
— along with 16 integrated automation solutions.
Richard Smith, Yamazaki Mazak European Group managing director, said: “Our theme for this year’s EMO, ‘Discover more with Mazak’, speaks of our relentless focus on productivity and is a ‘call to action’ for machine users to discover the true potential of their machining operations.
“Never before have we committed to bringing so many machines and different automation solutions to EMO
“This is truly a new age of discovery for machine users, who must think creatively and embrace new technologies and new ways of working.
“With Mazak as technology partners, machine users can open up new markets, safeguard their competitive positions and become better, faster and more productive.”
Mazak stand will be split into seven separate zones — Integrex multi-tasking, hybrid machining, five-axis, laser, vertical machining, turning and horizontals.
In addition, the Mazak stand will feature demonstrations of Industry 4.0 solutions, including Mazak iSMART factory and SMOOTH Technology.
Integrated automation will be a major focus for Mazak during EMO 2019
, with various solutions on display, including Palletech and Multi-Pallet Pool (MPP), gantry loaders and the Auto Work Changer (AWC).
In addition, Mazak machines will be integrated with a number of third-party automation providers, including machine-tending and bar feeder solutions.
Mr Smith concluded: “In the 100th year of our history, it is entirely fitting that we are making our greatest-ever contribution to EMO
“We have come a long way in 100 years, but our commitment to improvement and the development of new technologies is clearly demonstrated by the most advanced machine list we have ever brought to the show.
“I look forward to welcoming machine users from around Europe to our stand.”
