Making Manufacturing Ez: Four Ways Mazak Made the Ez Series Our Most Accessible Machines Ever

During the December All Axes LIVE event, Mazak premiered the new Ez Series – QT-Ez CNC Turning Centers, VC-Ez Vertical Machining Centers and MAZATROL SmoothEz CNCs. Attendees experienced just how capable and affordable these machines can be. Designed and manufactured in Florence, Kentucky, the Ez Series delivers Mazak quality, reliability and performance that can be easily integrated into any job shop. Ergonomic and optimized, these are the most affordable Mazaks yet.

  1. Streamlined Structure
    With their space-saving footprints, the Ez Series fits in any shop without sacrificing rigidity or performance. The redesigned sheet-metal enclosures and structures aren’t just more compact, they also pair easily with automation solutions such as Mazak’s CC-10 cobot system. To achieve the best-possible price-to-performance ratio for your shop’s application requirements, the series also includes a range of standard or optional integrated chip management and coolant systems.
  2. Work SMARTer, Not Harder
    Optimizing per-part costs requires much more than smart product design – every part of the Mazak iSMART Factory™ production system was rigorously reexamined to make the Ez Series as affordable as possible. The result is a simplified, accelerated machine assembly process that places high-quality machines in customers’ shops ASAP.
  3. Possess The Power
    A key benefit of the Ez Series is its new 200V electrical system, which makes bulky transformers unnecessary for many shops and helps reduce overall power consumption. A single, common electrical cabinet can support the entire machine series, providing efficient production and additional cost savings.
  1. Ez to Move With a Forklift
    Prudent lightweighting and advanced machine bed design render these machines stiff enough to handle tough applications and materials, yet light enough to transport with a forklift. These machines aren’t just “Ez” in terms of usability – the transportation, rigging, installation and serviceability have all been built to be Ez as well, saving everyone time that’s better spent cutting parts.
