THE FOUR QUADRANTS

5-AXIS AND MULTI-TASKING MACHINE TOOL SELECTION GUIDE

We offer the industry’s most advanced and comprehensive selection of 5-axis and Multi-Tasking machine configurations to give you the best cost of ownership and endless possibilities in complex part production. However, selecting the most appropriate level of manufacturing technology for your needs isn’t always easy.

That’s why we created our Four Quadrant Machine Tool Selection Guide to help you identify what Mazak equipment is going to make you the most competitive and profitable. Each quadrant represents a different level of machine capability, from traditional 5-axis performance to complex Multi-Tasking operations.
