Mazak to Host Special San Francisco Event for Silicon Valley Shops

Mazak will host a special Discover More with Mazak Technology and Learning event at its San Francisco facility in Milpitas, CA, March 15 - 16 from 10 AM - 4 PM. The event will center on the particular needs of Silicon Valley shops as well as those of the local area manufacturing community in general.

At the event, Mazak will showcase both machine tool and support technology solutions that are designed to allow those shops to overcome their specific manufacturing challenges, many of which stem from the ever tightening delivery times for short-run, high-precision complex parts that require multiple cutting operations and high-speed machining in automated cells to continuously boost output.

Discover More with Mazak San Francisco attendees will experience the high-speed machining capability of Mazak's HCN-4000 Horizontal Machining Center; the DONE IN ONE production benefits of its INTEGREX i-200S Multi-Tasking Machine and QUICK TURN 250MSY Turning Center; the small footprint of the QUICK TURN PRIMOS 100 Turning Machine; and the cyber security of the Mazak SmartBox for connecting equipment to the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).

With a direct-drive rotary table design, the Mazak HCN-4000 has fewer moving parts, which boosts positioning accuracy and speeds indexing time to help shorten overall part cycle times. "The machine's MAZATROL SmoothG control makes it easy to generate programs for processing extremely complex parts," said a company spokesperson.

For efficient processing of mid-size complex components, Mazak will demonstrate the INTEGREX i-200S with MAZATROL SmoothX control. In addition to a milling spindle that delivers the power of a vertical machining center spindle, the twin turning spindles on the INTEGREX i-200S feature speeds of 5,000 RPM and C-axis turning control. Both have a bore capacity measuring 3" (76 mm) in diameter.

Mazak's QUICK TURN 250MSY with multitasking functionality features two turning spindles, a 10,000 RPM rotary tool milling spindle and Y-axis capabilities for single set-up DONE IN ONE precision part processing operations. The machine's 12-position, direct-drive turret eliminates the use of belts for improved part surface finishes and reduced maintenance. It accepts both VDI and bolt-on tooling.

Discover More With Mazak San Francisco will also spotlight the small and fast QUICK TURN PRIMOS 100 with gantry loader for the automated production of simple workpieces. "The 2-axis turning center brings significant cost savings to job shops looking to boost their output - and does so within only 55 inches x 49 inches of required shop floor space," said the spokesperson. "With high-speed, high-accuracy and high-torque performance, the machine brings unsurpassed part processing value to shops in a variety of industry segments. In addition to its production benefits, this light-duty machine is ideal for training purposes at vocational high schools, technical colleges and other workforce development facilities."

On the digital manufacturing technology side, Mazak will highlight machine production data collection via its Mazak SmartBox. As a launch platform for easy and secure entrance into the IIoT, it is a scalable end-to-end solution that connects manufacturing equipment, including machines, software and other devices to a factory's network and allows the free flow of information to management systems via the industry standard communication protocol MTConnect.

Using the Mazak iSMART Factory as an example, event presenters will discuss the productivity and quality advantages of intelligence-based business models built around embedded connectivity, big data, advanced analytics and cyber security protection.

Mazak's Value Inspired Partners (VIPs) ESPRIT CAM by DP Technology and Sandvik Coromant will also be on hand to discuss the latest advances in automated part programming and toolholding technologies.

Each day of the event, Mazak will provide lunch as well as soft drinks and snacks. Participants should register online at
