Discover Digital Solutions to Next-Generation Challenges
As every manufacturer knows, the digital age has changed everything, especially the way the metalcutting industry approaches its work. Machine connectivity, cybersecurity, mixed reality training and advanced programming strategies – these concepts may have been science fiction just a few years ago, but today they’re an everyday part of the manufacturer’s toolkit. And at DISCOVER 2019, you’ll see just how far Mazak has pushed these new technologies forward.
A connectivity solution for machines and devices that leverages MTConnect® for enhanced monitoring and analytical capabilities as well as industry-leading cybersecurity, the Mazak SmartBox is the perfect information technology solution for operating technology. One SmartBox, installed on a nearby I-beam or a Mazak-supplied stand, can serve several machine tools and associated manufacturing equipment, all while supplying cybersecurity capable of meeting the stringent requirements common in industries ranging from aerospace to defense and beyond.
A digital ecosystem designed for the utmost in simplicity and ease of use, the SMOOTH TECHNOLOGY paradigm includes everything from the world-class MAZATROL SmoothX, SmoothG and SmoothC CNCs to a comprehensive suite of digital solutions capable of helping manufacturers overcome the most common challenges that shops face. Each of the four facets of SMOOTH TECHNOLOGY – Machine Design, Engineering Support, CNC Technology and Digital Solutions – delivers breakthrough manufacturing innovations. And as you’ll see at DISCOVER 2019, when these elements are fully integrated, the possibilities are endless.
Mixed Reality Training
Mixed Reality Training
First came virtual reality (VR), where users interacted with a fully virtual environment. Then came augmented reality (AR), which brought heads-up displays and informational overlays into the real world. Now, Mazak is introducing Mixed Reality Training, a combination of VR and AR technology that promises to transform operator training as we know it. Designed to reduce the risks associated with training new operators on highly sophisticated technology, Mixed Reality Training takes the virtual objects from VR and overlays them in the real world with an AR approach, enabling risk-free training – as well as a number of benefits you’ll see in action for the first time at DISCOVER 2019.
