Mazak heads to EMO with biggest ever stand and nine new machines

In its centenary year, Yamazaki Mazak is heading to EMO 2019 with plans for its biggest ever stand, hosting the largest number of machines and automation solutions ever exhibited by the company.

EMO 2019, which runs from the 16th to 21st September, will see Mazak give seven machines their world debuts, along with two further European debuts, with new INTEGREX Multi-Tasking, 5-axis, hybrid and turning machines among those on display.

Exhibiting under its EMO 2019 theme, ‘DISCOVER MORE WITH MAZAK’, Mazak will showcase 27 different machines in total, two more than for EMO 2017, along with 16 integrated automation solutions.

Richard Smith, European Group Managing Director at Yamazaki Mazak, commented: “Our theme for this year’s EMO, ‘DISCOVER MORE WITH MAZAK’, speaks of our relentless focus on productivity and is a call-to-action for machine users to discover the true potential of their machining operations. Never before have we committed to bringing so many machines and different automation solutions to EMO.”

He continued: “This is truly a new Age of Discovery for machine users who must think creatively and embrace new technologies and ways of working. With Mazak as technology partners, machine users can open up new markets, safeguard their competitive positions and become better, faster and more productive.”

The 3,000 square metre Mazak stand will be split into seven separate zones – INTEGREX Multi-Tasking, hybrid machining, 5-axis, laser, vertical machining, turning and horizontals – with all 27 machines in live-cutting action during the show. In addition, the Mazak stand will feature demonstrations of Industry 4.0 solutions, including Mazak iSMART factory and SMOOTH Technology.

Integrated automation will be a major focus for Mazak during EMO 2019, with a variety of different solutions on display, including PALLETECH and Multi-Pallet Pool (MPP), gantry loaders and the AWC Auto Work Changer. In addition, Mazak machines will be integrated with a number of third-party automation providers, including machine tending and bar feeder solutions.

Mr Smith concluded: “In this, the 100th year of our history, it is entirely fitting that we are making our greatest ever contribution to EMO. We have come a long way in 100 years, but our commitment to improvement and the development of new technologies is clearly demonstrated by the most advanced machine list we have ever brought to the show. I look forward to welcoming machine users from across Europe to our stand.”
