Why It’s Important to DISCOVER What We Can Do Together

November will soon arrive, and the team here at Mazak is excited to show all of our customers what we’ve been working on for DISCOVER 2019. Our theme for this year’s version of the industry’s largest private event is “Discover What We Can Do Together,” because our customers’ success is our success, and each of our successes advance our entire industry. Regardless of the size of a manufacturer’s shop, our primary goal is to help them discover the resources they need to be as productive and profitable as they can be – and at DISCOVER 2019, you will have the opportunity to see that firsthand.

This year’s DISCOVER will give you the chance to see how far we’ve come together with digital technology, including innovations such as MAZATROL Smooth CNCs, SMOOTH TECHNOLOGY and the Mazak SmartBox. You’ll get a glimpse into the exciting, state-of-the-art “future” that’s already here in the form of the all-new MAZATROL SmoothAi CNC, a programming powerhouse, and its integrated suite of SMOOTH TECHNOLOGY tools that leverage the power of artificial intelligence and machine learning to make programming easier than ever before.

DISCOVER also serves as an invitation to our customers to see for themselves how Mazak invests in technology that will, in turn, help manufacturers achieve greater productivity in their own shops. During this year’s event, attendees will experience the Mazak iSMART Factory™ enabled by MTConnect and its advanced equipment in action, as well as get a sneak peek at recent investments like a new MAZATEC SMS pallet-stocking system and a newly expanded Spindle Rebuild Facility that is currently under construction. Once completed, this updated facility will be able to repair and rebuild spindles at an unprecedented rate and speed, helping to keep manufacturers’ machines running even more efficiently.

However, since a machine is only as good as its maintenance program, we’ll introduce our new Mixed Reality remote service program, which blends virtual and augmented reality to make preventive and reactive maintenance more effective than ever. And on the education side, DISCOVER will include chances for visitors to connect with leading manufacturing experts and attend seminars on the latest techniques so they can find the solutions they need to tackle their toughest production challenges. We’re excited and honored to welcome industry thought leaders from Microsoft, Cisco, Lincoln Electric, Oak Ridge National Laboratory and more.

Of course, we understand that for many manufacturers, the main draw for DISCOVER is the chance to see our technology in action. With more than 30 of our latest machine tools under power and cutting parts at DISCOVER, including Mazak’s latest HYBRID Multi-Tasking innovations and those equipped with automation solutions ranging from simple bar feeders and  gantry loaders to Mazak’s Multi-Pallet Pool (MPP) system and other products from our Automation Solutions division, you will find the technology that will transform your manufacturing operations.

Around the world and across North America, the only constant in manufacturing is change and continuous improvement. Join us at DISCOVER 2019 to see just how we’re all working together to redefine the world of manufacturing. Register today at MazakUSA.com/DISCOVER2019.
