At the 2021 Precision Machining Technology Show (PMTS) scheduled for Aug. 10 to 12 in Cleveland, Mazak will highlight some of its latest high-output, cost-effective and space-saving machine tool technology.
The company will spotlight its Kentucky-built Ez Series of machines and CNC – all touted as game changers for medium to high-volume small-part applications.
Mazak technology in action will also include the QT-Ez 12MSY Horizontal Turning Machine, the VC-Ez 20 Vertical Machining Center, the HQR-200MSY Multi-tasking Machine and the company’s new MAZATROL SmoothEz CNC. Ez Series machines that are designed to give job shops and other manufacturers affordable access to CNC technology.

Related Glossary Terms
- computer numerical control ( CNC)
computer numerical control ( CNC)
Microprocessor-based controller dedicated to a machine tool that permits the creation or modification of parts. Programmed numerical control activates the machine’s servos and spindle drives and controls the various machining operations. See DNC, direct numerical control; NC, numerical control.
- machining center
CNC machine tool capable of drilling, reaming, tapping, milling and boring. Normally comes with an automatic toolchanger. See automatic toolchanger.
- precision machining ( precision measurement)
precision machining ( precision measurement)
Machining and measuring to exacting standards. Four basic considerations are: dimensions, or geometrical characteristics such as lengths, angles and diameters of which the sizes are numerically specified; limits, or the maximum and minimum sizes permissible for a specified dimension; tolerances, or the total permissible variations in size; and allowances, or the prescribed differences in dimensions between mating parts.
Workpiece is held in a chuck, mounted on a face plate or secured between centers and rotated while a cutting tool, normally a single-point tool, is fed into it along its periphery or across its end or face. Takes the form of straight turning (cutting along the periphery of the workpiece); taper turning (creating a taper); step turning (turning different-size diameters on the same work); chamfering (beveling an edge or shoulder); facing (cutting on an end); turning threads (usually external but can be internal); roughing (high-volume metal removal); and finishing (final light cuts). Performed on lathes, turning centers, chucking machines, automatic screw machines and similar machines.
- turning machine
Any machine that rotates a workpiece while feeding a cutting tool into it. See lathe.
