Industrial Automation

Mazak is the largest manufacturer of Flexible Manufacturing Systems, with a production history of more than 27 years. We are forerunners in industrial automation, revolutionising control systems in metal machining processes.         

The PALLETECH SYSTEM is designed with the flexibility required for shorter product life cycles, minimum in-process inventory, just-in-time production and other demands of today’s manufacturing environment.    

PALLETECH Manufacturing Cell.    

We offer the PALLETECH Manufacturing Cell (1 level) and PALLETECH High Rise System (2, 3 levels) according to your production volume and budget.    

Furthermore, the PALLETECH System is designed for convenient system expansion after the initial installation to easily respond to increased production requirements in the future.

Multi Pallet Pool (MPP)

The Multi Pallet Pool (MPP) offers high-speed pallet transfer and further extended unmanned running, compared to twin or six pallet automation systems. Specifically designed for unmanned lights out running, the configuration on display at EMO will feature a 16 station MPP, but a smaller 10 pallet version is also available. The MPP has an economic footprint – up to 40% smaller than a comparable PALLETECH system – and is controlled using the Smooth CNC, which is equipped with Mazak’s SMOOTH MPP software application. Smooth MPP facilitates advanced scheduling functions, faster analysis of production results and more efficient system utilisation and can be accessed remotely on PCs and smart phones.

TA-12

Easy-to-programme robot cell integrated with Mazak’s Smooth CNC, ideal for small to medium lots sizes. Automated robot arm for loading and unloading of workpieces. Ideal for applications that require lights-out unmanned running overnight or at weekends, both the machine tool and the robot are controlled from the Mazak Smooth CNC, which provides a seamless interface and extremely fast set-up.

e-BOT cell.    

The e-BOT Cell 720 is designed to realize up to 720 hours of unmanned operation per month in the machining of a wide variety of workpieces. Even for changes in production lot sizes, labor requirements are minimal.

TOOL TRANSPORT SYSTEM 

In order to realise unmanned operation over extended periods of time, tools required for machining must be in the machine magazines. By the use of the TOOL TRANSPORT SYSTEM, multiple machines can share and manage tools according to the machining schedule.
