Multi-Tasking may be the single most important innovation in manufacturing technology for companies seeking to be lean, efficient and globally more competitive.
Over the years, Mazak has been a pioneer in this field, introducing the first turn/mill lathe in 1983. For the past 30 years, we have developed the broadest range of Multi-Tasking machines in the industry, serving low, medium and high-volume production.
Multi-Tasking involves the combination of many different cutting processes on one machine, such as turning, milling, drilling, tapping and deep-hole boring, rather than doing them separately on different machines. Combining these types of processes helps reduce inaccuracies that can occur when moving parts across multiple workstations, cut down the number of machines required and reduces costs. Almost every industry relies on Multi-Tasking in one way or another to help maintain efficiency and enhance productivity. In fact, we think the benefits of our Multi-Tasking machines are so rewarding, we use them in our own facilities to make other Mazaks.
Because Multi-Tasking technology has helped, and is continuing to help, companies increase their productivity, create more business, and keep jobs in America, we have made a commitment to providing industry leading Multi-Tasking technology.
Today, Mazak is the world leader in Multi-Tasking. We’ve worked to develop a strong line of Multi-tasking machines that constantly meet the industry’s needs. Now, with more than 90 configurations from which to choose from, we offer the largest selection of advanced, highly versatile Multi-Tasking models in the world.
Multi-Tasking has led to numerous customer success stories over the years. For example, Industrial Machine Works Inc. started as a two-person garage operation and has evolved into an extremely productive machine shop due to their multi-tasking machine capabilities. Without its three Mazaks and the capabilities they provide, Industrial Machine Works would need twice as many machines and about double the size of its current workforce to maintain its current production levels.
So whether you are producing small parts with unit cycle times of under a minute, or large, complex components that require a full week of machining, we have a solution to boost your efficiency, flexibility and productivity.
