Once again, it’s time for the manufacturing world to converge on Chicago for IMTS, North America’s largest trade show. Mazak's presence at IMTS 2018 includes so much advanced technology, we need two booths to showcase it. Along with Booth #338300 in the South Hall, you'll also find us in Booth #432000 in the West Hall.
West Hall (Booth #432000)
Ready for the HYBRID Multi-Tasking revolution? Come see machines that combine subtractive and additive processes – including hot wire deposition and laser metal deposition – to provide true DONE IN ONE® manufacturing capability.
See the highly productive VC-500A/5X AM HWD Multi-Tasking machine with 5-axis milling capabilities, which also incorporates HOT WIRE additive manufacturing developed collaboratively with Lincoln Electric, a designer/developer/manufacturer of arc welding technologies. This additive technology can combine dissimilar metals as it generates exceptionally precise sealing coatings and near-net shape part features.
Also in our West Hall booth, watch the INTEGREX i-400 AM Multi-Tasking machine combine additive and subtractive technologies, using its laser metal deposition capability to generate near-net shape component features and then finish them with high-precision machining.
South Hall (Booth #338300)
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) brings the fourth industrial revolution to your shop floor in the form of secure digital connectivity that enables you to monitor your machines around the clock and around the world. In the South Hall booth, the Mazak Digital Plaza presents the Mazak iSMART Factory concept, with comprehensive connectivity and real-time data collection through MTConnect®, SMOOTH Link, the Mazak SmartBox® and other powerful SMOOTH TECHNOLOGY digital solutions.
Combined with a digitally connected production system, Mazak automation solutions will help you maximize your equipment’s potential output. On display in the South Hall booth, the Multi-Pallet Pool (MPP) and PALLETECH systems will expand your part-processing versatility as well as your productivity and open the door to unmanned lights-out production. You’ll see the PALLETECH system and our SMOOTH PMC cell-control software working together with a Mazak HCN-6800 Horizontal Machining Center and watch the space-saving MPP System load and unload a Mazak VARIAXIS i-700 Vertical Machining Center.
In total, you’ll see 20 of the industry’s most advanced machine tools – all under power and running parts. With this much technology at one event, we want to assure that you find what you want to see. Interested in a specific Mazak machine or just want to know what's where? Here's your booth-by-booth guide to what we're demonstrating at IMTS 2018.
