We deal with the installation of new machines, onsite operator training and look after the relocation of existing machinery within the UK with our team of engineers

Mazak engineers

New Machine installation

Company procedure for the installation & commissioning of machinery

An appointed engineer will be required to install and commission as follows.


Power and air will be connected by customer, or appointed contractor to requirements specified by Mazak.

The designated Mazak engineer(s) will perform the following tasks:

  • Check power and air connections
  • Clean machine and ancillary equipment
  • Rough level machine
  • Position tool magazine (where applicable)
  • Fit additional machine guards (where applicable)
  • Final machine alignment
  • Fit ancillary equipment
  • Test machine / equipment functions
  • Test safety functions
  • All equipment used for installation purposes, i.e. precision levels, squares, d.t.i clocks etc. will be fully calibrated.

Overview of parameters




*Only demonstrated if part of machine configuration.
**Our engineers do not create programs for components.
(Mazak offers full programmer training courses, please speak to your salesman for more information).
***Our engineers do not cut components but can monitor your operator through first run off.
(Tooling, material, programme etc. must be available during the demonstration period if this is required).


Relocation of Existing Machinery


Haulage arrangements

Customers have the option to arrange their own haulage for internal and external moves, but for many, they find it preferable for Mazak to organize this so that the whole move is coordinated.

If requested to arrange haulage this will include:

  • Uplift
  • Cut bolts
  • Move
  • Position
  • Mark
  • Drill
  • Bolt down
  • Resin and rough level

Ancillary equipment

Customers are responsible for the recommission of all ancillary equipment, however we do give you the option whereby we can organise this on your behalf with the relevant suppliers.

Ball bar check

Ball bar calibration will provide a simple, quick check of a machine’s positioning performance to recognized ISO standards. This allows Mazak to benchmark and track the performance of your machine, quickly diagnosing and predicting problems and issues from temperature and collisions through to general wear and tear.

Regular Ballbar helps to:

  • Ensure accurate parts, done-in-one,
  • Reduce machine down-time, scrap and inspection costs
  • Maintain Mazak specifications
  • Implement predictive maintenance programmes
