Prioritising productivity

Yamazaki Mazak (hall 20, stands 760 and 790) is set to showcase 13 productivity-enhancing solutions from its portfolio of machine tools and laser profiling centres.
The company will also use the platform to showcase its suite of Industry 4.0 solutions, which were first unveiled at EMO last year. For instance, Mazak’s iSmart Factory works in partnership with Mazak’s Smooth CNC Technology to improve OEE and facilitate data-driven manufacturing via connection of the factory and office networks.
In terms of machines on display, the UK-built VTC-800/30SR is a vertical travelling column machining centre capable of full five-axis contouring, making it suited to both aerospace applications and general subcontract manufacturing. Alongside will be another aerospace-specific model, the HCR-5000S, a five-axis horizontal machining centre developed for high-speed aluminium cutting. Machines will also be displayed to suit the oil and gas, and automotive sectors.
