Designed and manufactured in Florence, the full lineup of Ez vertical, turning, and Multi-Tasking machining centers offer “solutions for every manufacturer.”

The high-production technology action area will showcase Mazak’s new Syncrex series of Swiss-style machines designed for high-volume production of small, precise parts. Attendees will see first-hand how adding fast, high-accuracy, and tight-tolerance production boosts business opportunities. 

Two additional action areas will spotlight Mazak's Multi-Tasking and advanced manufacturing technologies. Among the featured machines in the Multi-Tasking, action area will be Mazak’s Integrex and Quick Turn series which combine multiple operations for Done in One processing of raw materials to finished parts for increased cost efficiency and flexibility. 

The advanced manufacturing technology action area will focus on Mazak’s two new NEO Series of machines.

  • centers

    centers

    Cone-shaped pins that support a workpiece by one or two ends during machining. The centers fit into holes drilled in the workpiece ends. Centers that turn with the workpiece are called “live” centers; those that do not are called “dead” centers.

  • turning

    turning

    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.
